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.”

ODALYS IBARRA CTE • MANAGER OF CORPORATE SAFETY, LIZ CLAIBORNE, INC.
“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.”
SAFETY MANAGER, MORTENSON
“Anytime we need expert assistance, they respond immediately. Hilmerson’s staff is professional and knowledgeable.”
“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.”
BENJAMIN WATSON • SAFETY ENGINEER, MORTENSON

LEED GREEN ASSOCIATE - PROJECT MANAGER, HEALTHCARE

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 ned” in action.
KRISTINA MAHLER , PARTNERSHIP DIRECTOR - BUILDWITT MEDIA GROUP

“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.”
