MultiRail Horizontal Rail System

Jul 21, 2020 Posts

The MultiRail horizontal anchorage device is a new type of personal safety system combining all the advantages of wire rope-based and rail-types stationary systems. MultiRail offers a very wide range of installation possibilities and guarantees protection against falls in hazardous zones, in accordance with European Standards. Due the simplicity of its design, MultiRail does not have to be serviced yearly as must be done with cable lifeline systems – thus reducing lifetime costs. 

Installation Positions:  Floor Level Installation (Fall Factor 2) – this installation would ideally be used in Fall Restraint  Waist Height Installation (Fall Factor 1) – this installation can be used for fall arrest or restraint and can also provide a handrail.  Above Head Installation (Fall Factor 0) – this installation provides the safest solutions when there is a fall risk and can be used in fall arrest or fall restraint. 


Safety Features 

Fixing centres can be up to 4m and it is certified for simultaneous use by up to 6 persons. In the case of a fall, the resultant forces are absorbed by the intermediate brackets therefore the end fixings loads are much lower than in the case of cable lifeline systems.  

Fully Tested and Compliant 

MultiRail has been fully tested according to the European Guidelines for personal safety equipment. The Söll MultiRail Horizontal Rail System conforms to the latest European standard EN 795 type D and CEN/TS 16415 regulations for horizontal anchor devices.  

Materials & Installation 

Resilient materials help the longevity of the product:  Stainless Steel product line is resistant in the toughest environmental conditions. Aluminium system provides the best price/quality solution for low-corrosive work environments. MultiRail can be customised to your building or structure design. 

The Söll MultiRail® system can now be used as an abseiling Rail, allowing people to work in suspension on façades (cleaning, painting, maintenance etc.) in a stainless steel version and provides a safe and ergonomic anchorage solution. Unlike other abseiling rails the MultiRail system has a discrete design allowing it to be almost un-noticed ensuring that the ascetics of the building are not jeopardised. 

The Lockable gliders allow users to work from a fixed position on the rail reducing possibility of swing movement from wind. EN795 and CEN/TS 16415 compliant The Söll MultiRail® system meets the latest European standard EN795 for anchorage devices type D and CEN/TS 16415 specification (for multi-users). The system is suitable for working in suspension under the following conditions:  

• Maximum 2 users per system  

• The structure is rigid enough that no deformation occurs during usage  

• Connection to two mobile anchor points (gliders), one for suspension and one for fall protection on the same rail.
