Long-Span Access Rail

Logo-R27LongspanLong-Span Version of Classic R27 Access Rail System 

Harken Industrial developed the Long-Span Access Rail (R27LS) as an alternative to its flagship R27 Classic Access Rail system. The R27LS system offers the same strong, free-rolling ball bearing trolleys as the classic, but has a more robust profile, allowing it to handle longer spans without compromising strength.

Support brackets are offered in a variety of styles for ease of installation, and for mounting on surfaces of different types and configurations. Like the Classic Access Rail system, the R27LS can be used for fall protection and for rope access.

Available standard in clear-anodized. A wide range of optional specialty colors are available via request/special order. Please contact Harken Industrial for further details.

Engineered for Diverse Applications

The R27LS is used as a horizontal rail system in many fields (industrial, architectural, civil, etc.) to create a rigid mobile anchor for fall protection and rope access systems.

Longer Span Reduces Cost

The longer span between attachment points reduces installation costs: 3 m (9.84′) span for fall protection; 1.5 m (4.90′) for rope access.

Q: Is the R27LS compliant with EN795:2012, CEN/TS16415, UNI11578, ANSI Z359 and OSHA?

A: Yes. The R27LS is compliant with EN795:2012 Class D, CEN/TS 16415, UNI11578, ANSI Z359, and OSHA. Due to ongoing regulatory changes, individual safety system components can no longer be CE marked.

Q: How many people can work at the same time on the R27LS?

A: On the same span (between two (2) brackets), four (4) workers can work when used as fall arrest, or two (2) workers when used as a rope access system.

Q: What is the maximum attachment center between two (2) sets of brackets?

A: The maximum attachment center between two (2) brackets is 3 m (9.84 ft), if used as a fall arrest system, and 1.5 m (4.9 ft) if used as a rope access system.

Q: Which trolleys can be used?

A: The trolleys for the Long-Span Rail are the same used with the Classic Access Rail system R27. Click here for the full range of trolleys.
