Got Fall Hazards? Find Yourself Needing Different Safety Rail Attachment Options to Protect Workers on Your Construction Sites?

Leading edges, elevator shafts, excavations, trenches, parapet walls, retaining walls, roofs and access areas all pose different challenges.

Or, are you still using 2 x 4’s, wire rope cable or traditional steel rails with single base options?  Innovation in guardrails for construction has been at a stand still for years. Everyone specs the “yellow rail” as a standard and accepts it because that’s what has always been used. But most have limited attachment options and they rust and dent. These are fall protection practices of the past.

With 30 years experience in the field we fully understand the problem and the need. And we’ve seen many creative ways laborers have built attachment workarounds that are not OSHA compliant or piles of old rusty rails on job sites that really shouldn’t be reused. Old ways are just that, old. You need new. New engineering. New construction-grade™ material that won’t rust. New ways to efficiently store and transport your safety rails.

That’s why we engineered the Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ – the most versatile modular guardrail system in the industry:

  • Simple and fast installations
  • Interchangeable attachments and varying guardrail lengths
  • Construction-grade™ material
  • Safety railing kits for easy transportation and storage

Construction-Grade™ Guardrails

We believe in making “set it and forget it” modular guardrail systems. Set the rail, add the base, connect it and don’t worry about it. Our robust rails are simple to install and the quality of material means they won’t dent or rust. Move it with a forklift. Leave it in the snow. Set it and forget it.

Unlike our competitors, our guardrails are hot-dipped inside and out. We do not make yellow powder-coated guardrails that rust and we do not make steel guardrails that are only galvanized on the outside. Rusty rails are inconsistent and open up liability for your job site. You need construction-grade™ material in your fleet that you can trust.

Safety Railing Kits for Easy Transportation and Storage
