X-Rail Fall Protection



Our X-Rail fall protection system can be used as an edge protection for mezzanine floors. The system is a modification of our X-Guard range and therefore the system can fill dual purposes, mezzanine protection and machine guarding. X-Rail can be used either without panels or with X-Guard Classic panels - mesh, plastic, and sheet metal.

Learn about X-Rail

X-Rail comes in two post heights; 1 400 and 2 300 mm, and can be installed in a number of different heights and center widths allowing you to choose your preferred configuration.

The system is completely interchangeable with standard X-Guard in areas where edge protection is not required. X-Rail is quickly and easily installed either directly on a concrete floor, bolted to the steel mezzanine I-beams of the mezzanine structure or on several different bases, including 38 mm plywood or metal grid channels.

The installation of the modular handrail is also easy, the existing key hole slots in the rails allow to use a handrail and additional kneerail, if needed. To ensure that maximum safety is achieved you also may also install mesh, solid or transparent panels depending on the nature of the installation and the requirements. Using a full mesh panel and the kick plate, you avoid gaps and thereby prevent accidents with smaller objects falling to lower levels.

When and why do you need fall protection?

Depending on the industry you are working in, the requirements for having a fall protection installed differ. Some businesses require protection from the floor level while others are more generous. A simple rule is that if your employees work at a height of more than a meter above a level below, you need some form of fall protection. Especially if they are working above equipment or substances that may be harmful or if they could lose grip and fall. If a fall accident should occur, it could be fatal. In any industry, the staff’s safety always needs to be the main concern and top priority. By installing a correct and certified system from the very beginning you are not only protecting your employees, you are also saving money by preventing accidents and downtime of damaged machinery. Make sure that you always consult a safety expert and do research to prevent injury to your personnel and violation of safety rules. On page three we list the standards fulfilled by X-Rail. These are standards for fall protection and guard railing systems to ensure that regulations and requirements are met.
