Samson Horizontal Rail System
The SAMSON is a wall or ceiling mounted, rigid horizontal track /rail anchorage safety line. A mobile carriage slides along a rail which is permanently attached overhead onto a structure,and allows a person to move around safely beneath or beside a horizontal rail without needing to unhook; it consists of a fixed track installation and a mobile individual carriage as the anchor point.
As part of the SAMSON track installation, the mobile device has the particularity of being suitable for use as a fall restraint, fall arrest system or a suspension system. When used with a working saddle, it is necessary to insert two mobile carriages, the first used as a saddle anchorage and the second for the fall arrest system securing the operator. The installation of the SAMSON rigid horizontal track must be absolutely horizontal and permit the movement of a user over the entire working zone. The track can be wall or ceiling mounted, and must always be placed above the user. It is suitable for high-rise installations and should be used with the fall arrest systems such as COBRA, VIPER, JRG, AUTOBLOC or a lanyard with an energy absorber.
The user can move along the rail in total safety, always connected. SAMSON allows straight applications and curves. The use of a SAMSON system with a retractactable type fall arrester or a flexible anchorage line also provides possibility of vertical movement. SAMSON gives a total liberty of movement in a horizontal and vertical space for one or two persons on the system. This ease of movement means SAMSON Horizontal Track System is also particularly suitable for abseil purposes as an overhead anchor point or access track .
The SAMSON system is in conformity with standard EN795 Class D concerning anchorage devices. The APAVE test organization has issued the confirmity certificate number 97.6.0228. The overall strength of the system is 15kN.
Many installation options are available, with installation required by an approved installer such as PBI Height Safety Ltd. Please contact PBI today for a consultation on a SAMSON horizontal safety lifeline system for your next project.
