Construction work on rope and working at heights in general are easier and safer with this rail system for horizontal use. Compared to other safety systems for working at height, in fact, the rail fixed on the roof ensures a reduced footprint, guaranteeing minimal visual impact.

H-RAIL can be used for various applications. Assembly requires a limited number of fastening points with support spacing up to 6 m. Compared to the other H-RAIL models, H-RAIL ON FLOOR is installed on the roof covering, with the possibility of being raised to overcome any obstacles (H-RAIL+TOWER). Otherwise, H-RAIL ON WALL is installed on the wall, while H-RAIL OVERHEAD is installed below the supporting structure.

Work on rope with H-RAIL ON FLOOR

There is often little room for manoeuvre in façade maintenance. When it comes to window cleaning, for example, there are few alternatives that guarantee the execution of work on rope and the safety of rope operators. Among these, the most common are BMUs (Building Maintenance Units or "baskets") and systems that integrate horizontal rails for rope access, such as H-RAIL. In contrast to BMUs, systems such as Rothoblaas H-RAIL are a discreet, elegant and quickly installed solution.

The advantages of H-RAIL in work on rope

In addition to improved aesthetics, small footprint and low weight, H-RAIL also has safety advantages. Whereas in BMUs, during work, operators have to lean out to reach the facade, risking swinging the basket, H-RAIL's rail allows suspended work, with the operator on the rope being harnessed and at the correct distance from the wall.

Also with regard to the speed of execution of work on rope, H-RAIL allows the presence of 4 operators at the same time on the same span, with a greater speed of execution of the work, even on inclined façades, with angles and narrow spaces.

Another advantage of a rigid system such as the H-RAIL rail system, this time in comparison to a traditional flexible lifeline, is the absence of falling cambers and the need to take this into account when calculating the vertical clearance.
