Spider, a division of SafeWorks, LLC, announces SpiderRail– a temporary, non- penetrating guardrail system used to protect workers from fall hazards in the restoration, new construction, and process industries.
Designed for easy and efficient assembly which meets and exceeds OSHA’s fall protection requirements, SpiderRail keeps worksites safe by protecting edges and other fall hazards while giving workers the space and freedom needed for optimal productivity.
With a base plate weight of 30 lb, SpiderRail is easy to transport and assemble, and minimizes installation strain on workers. The system is uniquely designed to be stable and sturdy without a return or outrigger at the path ends. Swivel clamps and patented interconnection features provide the strongest temporary rail on the market. SpiderRail comes with built-in toeboards making it a complete ready-to-install system. The pre-engineered fabricated panel system eliminates lumber yard visits to collect and dispose of 2x4s, saving time and resources while offering a superior alternative solution.
“Safety and fall protection are integral parts of Spider’s overall offering and value to our customers,” says John Sotiroff, Vice President Sales and Distribution. “We are thrilled to add SpiderRail to our line, providing a safer, stronger and OSHA-compliant product to prevent workers from fall hazards. The addition of SpiderRail as a rental option gives customers flexibility to make good safety decisions on the smallest of hatch coverings to the protection of exposed edges on multiple floors of a large construction project. Our network of 25 branches in the Americas ensures that we can respond to our customers’ demands.”
