32 mm Access Rail


The Harken Access Rail system is designed for use as an adjustable anchorage point for external maintenance on buildings. This system provides the operator freedom of movement at height and also the ability to lock into position while working. It eliminates the need for a large, expensive cradle access system which calls for compromises in a building’s architecture.

Simple to use and ideal for diverse applications.

The 32 mm Access Rail is ideal for use in a wide range of applications and industries:

  • Construction/steel frame and envelope projects
  • Renewable energy/blade cleaning
  • Facilities management/asset integrity inspections
  • Stage management, filming and rigging
  • Architectural/building survey
  • Vessel maintenance
