DBI Sala FlexiGuard Counterweight Jib Fall Arrest System

DBI Sala FlexiGuard Counterweight Jib Fall Arrest System

DBI Sala FlexiGuard Fall Arrest Systems are custom access solutions created based on your application requirements and design constraints while ensuring maximum safety and peace of mind. They are durable in construction, made from powder-coated anodized high strength alloy and SAE J429 Grade 8 hardware with a zinc yellow Chromate plated finish. The enclosed rail design helps keep debris and weather elements out. They offer portability in a lightweight design, allowing them to be easily moved by minimal personnel and employ heavy-duty stabilization for use on uneven ground. Most system styles allow for positioning by a forklift or other service vehicle. They can also be permanently mounted (where applicable). FlexiGuard systems are versatile and can be used both indoors and outdoors. They provide a large, safe working area (working radius from rail is 6 ft or 30°) and are 100% fall arrest rated for tie-off from the ground up. The rigid anchor points have no deflection or sag, reducing fall clearance requirements and there are multiple overhead anchor points on systems designed for multiple users.

The FlexiGuard Counterweight Jib System is a portable solution for indoor and outdoor maintenance where mobility and worker safety are key. These systems incorporate a 360° rotating jib with the capacity to provide fall protection for one person. Forklift pockets are strategically located on all four sides of the base to ensure ease of mobility and placement from job site to job site. The base also contains four heavy-duty lifting rings for transport by a crane.
