UNI-TRACK Systems

UNI-TRACK Fall Arrest System

UNI-TRACK is a lightweight horizontal rigid track fall arrest system, designed from the worlds most recognized name in structural support, UNISTRUT.  Most UNI-TRACK fall arrest installations occur indoors, with the system attaching to the underside of the building’s roof framing steel.  This cost-effective, modular fall arrest system is an incredibly versatile alternative to more expensive, custom trolley beam systems and provides excellent fall protection for workers performing tasks above tanks, machinery, semi-truck trailers, and more.

One of the most important considerations when contemplating installation of a UNI-TRACK fall arrest system is the strength of the building’s roof trusses.  This is why our engineers conduct an on-site visit and perform calculations to determine if the truss system is strong enough to support the UNI-TRACK system.  After the engineering review and installation are completed, you’ll enjoy years of safe and reliable service from your UNI-TRACK system.
