The tables at right are intended to assist you in choosing the best track for your application. ANSI defines one worker as an individual with tools that does not exceed 310 lbs. For applications that require a worker and tools exceeding 310 lbs., please consult Gorbel for a custom engineered system. All systems listed are designed for components that are rated for the industry standard 900 pounds maximum arresting force (MAF). MAF is defined as the shock force the body feels when decelerating from a fall. For applications with higher potential force, systems can be custom designed as high as the OSHA specified 1800 lbs. MAF.
PLAIN TRACK Plain enclosed steel track provides smooth motion with the benefit of offering the most headroom of any track style.
TRUSSED TRACK Single trussed track allows for the longest possible spans between supports, reducing hardware and installation costs.
DUAL TRUSSED TRACK The dual-track enables one worker to pass by another on a monorail system without unsafely disconnecting.
Tether Trolleys™ Gorbel's Tether Trolleys™ were engineered specifically for fall protection applications to provide fluid movement and stability. The trolley uses DURACOMP4® wheels, a proprietary material that delivers unmatched durability and consistent long term performance. To match the 2-degree taper of the lower running flange, wheels are also tapered 2-degrees to help keep the trolley centered in the track for effortless movement. The swivel eye secures the lanyard or SRL, allowing free movement beneath the trolley and prevents twisting of the lanyard or SRL.
The three wheel design of the monorail trolley prevents binding inside the track, even when side loaded up to 30 degrees. This means that as the worker moves, the trolley moves as well.
