Fall protection has made many advances on the last ten years. But there are still many tasks that are very difficult to provide economical fall protection for, especially when they are located in the field away from central depots or terminals. In field service of heavy equipment, working on flat deck trailers, aircraft maintenance and snow removal are just a few of them. While there are some fall protection systems that can be of service, they tend to be awkward to use, require pre-positioning or mechanical assistance like a large forklift, or be uneconomical for dispersed use. In many cases working safely at height continues to pose challenges to the fall protection designer.
Tuff Built Products Inc. designed the Sky-X-Stand to meet these fall protection needs, and many more as well. Sky-X-Stand is a simple, lightweight and portable fall arrest anchor that can be easily set up and maneuvered in the field. Sky-X-Stand systems can provide fall protection for one or two workers, depending upon the model. Using our lightweight custom aluminum extrusions and patent pending ‘Tuff-Klik’ connections, Sky-X-Stand fall protection anchors offer an exciting alternative.
Sky-X-Stand is designed with a series of nesting extrusions that transport in a collapsed position, then are pulled out to the necessary length and are automatically connected together by ‘Tuff-Klik’. It has a fall protection rated anchor at the top. Sky-X-Stand can then be raised in position and secured into a number of different bases, either permanent or portable. Portable bases would include a counterweighted trailer, a mobile base, or even common models of pick up trucks. As mentioned previously Sky-X-Stand fall [protection systems can come with either one or two anchors; or, they can even have a horizontal rail and anchor trolley(s) to extend the safe working area.
