Gorbel TETHER TRACK Fall Arrest Fold Away Systems

Gorbel’s Fold Away Systems are engineered fall protection systems that provides safety when you need it, and space when the system is not in use.  Similar to the Swing Arm Systems, Tether Track Fold Away Systems supply convenient overhead fall protection when extended without sacrificing productivity.

Ideal for areas such as railroad maintenance facilities or where large food processors must be regularly maintained, these systems may be easily moved from the work environment when a fall protection system is not essential. By deploying only when needed, Fold Away Systems allow complete access to overhead cranes in order to keep production at high levels.

What is TETHER TRACK?

What is TETHER TRACK?

Tether Track Engineered Fall Protection Systems utilize an innovative enclosed track system to provide worker fall safety and avoid injuries due to falls while maximizing their productivity. Available in a variety of track styles and specifications, all of our engineered fall protection systems meet or exceed ANSI and OSHA safety standards.

The building block for our rigid rail anchor system is our enclosed track design, which is engineered for easy movement. The cold-rolled steel track keeps dirt and dust from settling on the rolling surface, allowing for smoother, more consistent ease of movement than an I-beam with no need for cleaning or maintenance of the track on the fall protection system. The track also features a running flange with a 2-degree taper to keep the trolley centered. That allows the trolley and attached lanyard to easily follow the worker, rather than forcing them to pull free a trolley that has become stuck.

Why Gorbel TETHER TRACK?

Why Gorbel TETHER TRACK?

Gorbel’s engineered Tether Track Rigid Rail Fall Protection Systems are a reliable, cost-effective way to reduce the risk of injury in elevated work environments. Unlike horizontal lifeline systems, these systems enable workers to effortlessly pass one another without disconnecting from the system— minimizing the risk of a fall during the reattachment process. All of our permanent fall arrest systems are designed to meet or exceed OSHA safety standards.

  • STOPS FALLS FASTER: Tether Track requires less fall clearance than wire rope systems, making it ideal for low-headroom applications where overhead fall protection is still required.
  • LOWER MATERIAL AND INSTALLATION COSTS: Tether Track covers greater distances between supports, thus requiring less material to cover the same overall area.
  • SAFER FOR MULTIPLE WORKERS: Unlike wire rope systems, multiple workers are not impacted by each other’s movements.
  • REQUIRES NO STRUCTURAL MODIFICATIONS: Tether Track’s rigid fall protection anchor point eliminates the need to modify building structures.
