What Our Clients Say About Hilmerson Safety®
“We have been using the Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ for the past several months and it is doing amazing. We enjoy the options that the system has to offer and also enjoy the cart that everything can fit in.”
“We were able to install, maintain and remove the Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ for about 60% less labor than our traditional handrail. Our biggest benefit is the low maintenance.”
“Our construction fence panels are holding up nicely, especially with our fabric screen installed on them! We’ve had two “monsoons” come through this spring in Chicago. One was literally a tropical storm that made its way up from the southern states that almost tipped over our portable restrooms and possibly bent our gate. However, the panels didn’t seem to flinch at all.”
“We love the guardrails and gate Hilmerson installed for us. We can’t say enough about Hilmerson’s hard work and perseverance for perfection!”
“We’ve used the Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ on 2 jobs now and I love it! Fast and Easy install”
“Anytime we need expert assistance, they respond immediately. Hilmerson’s staff is professional and knowledgeable.”
“Commercial contractors – If you haven’t heard about this product, you need to. Time saving, waste reducing and looks sharp. Debra Hilmerson is a total spitfire and I am looking forward to watching this company blow up. This is ‘find a need, fill a need’ in action.”
“The system is easy to mobilize, easy to install, easy to break down.”
“The Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ has been absolutely convenient for our project. With the speed of installation and durability of the product we could not ask for more. I hope to never again see the old wood rail system on my sites. The old saying in construction has always been “Never trust a guardrail…”, Well, this system has our site in full trust – it will hold up through the construction activities of our site.”
“We found that we can quickly do an inspection to see if they are installed properly. And our crews were immediately more productive since they spent less time fixing and adjusting guard rails.”
“We purchased this product to use for the next 15 years or longer, and we are easily recouping our investment. I’ve never thrown away a piece of Hilmerson railing. It leaves the job in the same condition as it shows up. We just pick it up and store it on the cart. That’s very unique because every other piece of durable equipment on our job sites requires ongoing maintenance. Having the Hilmerson Safety Rail System in our inventory has definitely changed the way I plan and budget jobs.”
“The rails are great. The sustainable reuse has allowed for these to pay for themselves.”
“Hilmerson Safety Rails are robust and we get fewer questions about how the system should be installed and used,” says Bune. “We never have to put a tape measure to them because they are at OSHA-compliant height. Because they are galvanized, they don’t rust and they hold up to repeated uses. With the weighted bases, we don’t have to patch holes afterward. And when we’re done, they’re easy to load onto the cart.”
“The guardrails worked perfectly for what we purchased them for. Thank you so much for the great service and follow-up”.
“The Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ is a hit! We had OSHA onsite for an onsite safety consultation and even they loved them!”
“The Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ is a phenomenal product by the way, we couldn’t be happier!”
“We started using the Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ early in the project and was glad to do so. It saved our field force a lot of time and energy. These galvanized steel guardrails have virtually no maintenance vs using a wood rail system which helped reduce a lot of rework and constantly going back to adjust or move them. Super easy, light weight system and looks very professional! Thank you for changing the game when it comes to permanent or temporary guardrail systems.”
“Love it! Simple to use. Learning curve is minimal. We want more!”
“I can honestly say, your Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ has already saved us substantial time and money while keeping our workers safe. Thank you!”
“The Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ is far superior to wood railings: installs quicker, zero material waste, zero time spent on maintenance. Most importantly, our subcontractors report they feel safer working around a stout metal guardrail system vs wood.”
“The Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ alleviates human error during the installation process. Very simple to use: two bases, two pins, and rails. The product design makes it easier to train new users and increases production on projects. Foreman will spend less time with building guardrails and increase man power in other areas. Compared to other systems your system is a cut above the rest – especially with the cart station which adds value to keep things organized on the job-site.”
