Rapid Rail International

Steel Monopoles

At Rapid Rail International (RRI) we have a unique understanding of the height safety challenges faced by electrical utilities and their line workers. We have developed engineered fall arrest systems for steel monopoles that are ideal for either retrofit or newly built structures. Importantly we have engineered solutions specific to either McGregor type ladders or step rungs. Whether it’s our VCS system that provides a virtual free climb experience, or the SK-2 that allows step bolts to become fall arrest rated anchor points, there is an RRI product to improve safety on all steel monopoles. Find out more below or get in contact with an RRI representative.

Vertical Lifeline Systems

The Rapid Rail International Vertical Cable System (VCS) is a wire rope-based fall arrest system designed for installation to electrical transmission and distribution towers and poles, telecoms towers and other similar structures. The VCS2 system offers permanent attachment and fall arrest protection for up to four climbers working simultaneously and arrests falls within 2ft.

  • Maximum 2ft fall distance
  • Adaptable to fit most structures
  • Virtual free climb

S-Flo Rope Grab

The S-Flo is intrinsically linked to all Rapid Rail International vertical lifeline systems. Exclusively for use with our vertical lifeline systems, the S-Flo with its patented integrated energy absorber allows for continuous movement either up or down the wire rope, seamlessly passing the intermediate guide brackets without the need to remove the device at any point, providing a virtual free climb.

  • Virtual free climb
  • Maximum 2ft fall distance
  • Zero maintenance, only requires a simple pre use visual check

SK-2 Step Bolt Anchor

The Rapid Rail International SK-2 solves the problem of step bolts not meeting anchor point standards. The SK-2 is simply fitted to an existing step bolt which then becomes a 5000lbf (22kN) rated anchor point and can be left in place once fitted for future use.

  • The SK-2 allows safe use of existing step-bolts as anchor points
  • Quick and easy installation
  • No requirement to remove existing step-bolts
  • Can be fitted to galvanized or weathering steel step-bolts
  • Available to fit 5/8” [16mm] , 3/4” [19mm] and 7/8” [22mm] step bolts

Portable Lifeline System

The Rapid Rail International Portable Vertical Lifeline system is ideal for multiple climbs of an infrequently climbed structure, such as restringing a transmission line. It has been designed to be lightweight, quick to install and importantly utilises a zero-stretch rope rather than traditional kernmantle which can stretch in excess of 10% in a fall situation. As with other Rapid Rail International vertical systems the portable product utilises the S-Flo rope grab which seamlessly passes intermediate brackets providing a virtual free climb and descent.

  • Maximum 2ft fall distance
  • Virtual free climb
  • Lightweight, zero stretch rope
