Hilmerson Safety Rail System™2019-11-13T18:21:20+00:00

Safety Rails That Are American Made & Construction Grade

Our team of construction safety experts spent two years in the field asking you, the Tradesmen, Superintendents, and Equipment Managers with top General Contractors, “How can we make leading edge fall protection better?” Your answers were consistent, clear, and often colorful!

Get rid of these #!$@%  2x4s! Make a simple engineered OSHA Compliant safety rail system that’s actually affordable. Make it in America. Make it easy to install. Make it lean, reusable, and durable. Make “safety rail kits” for easy inventory, storage, inspection, shipment, and give us a quick ROI.

You spoke, we listened, and the Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ was born from your job sites.

Rapid Safety Rail Installs & Significant Labor Savings Potential

Time is money… so we designed the Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ for rapid and simple installation. Minimal components, user friendly design, and self-contained kits all combine for simplicity and ease of use.

Minimize your labor hours, eliminate ongoing maintenance during your projects, and eliminate wasteful 2x4s. Watch our time-lapse safety rail install video and imagine the labor hours you could save using our system for applications like fall protection, pedestrian control, or controlling access around equipment.

 Simple & Durable Guardrail Systems

As construction safety professionals, we know that complex or difficult safety systems make it easy to take shortcuts or install a system incorrectly. That’s why we designed the Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ to be as simple as possible with limited components, zero mechanical parts, and engineered to exceed OSHA requirements.

We  also know the wear and tear on construction equipment makes you less profitable, so we designed one of the toughest guardrail systems on the market.

What Our Clients Say

“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.”

SUPERINTENDENT, MORTENSON
“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.”
SUPERINTENDENT, MORTENSON

“We love the guardrails and gate Hilmerson installed for us. We can’t say enough about Hilmerson’s hard work and perseverance for perfection!”

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.”

DIANE ERPELDING • RISK MANAGER / SAFETY OFFICER , ITASCA COUNTY, MINNESOTA
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

“Looking close at the costs of using wood guardrails we realized we were off in how they were budgeted. We decided to take a Lean approach and reached out to an industry partner to help come up with a a solution that would add, not detract, from the bottom line.”

TAYLOR GUNKEL • SUPERINTENDENT & DESIGN PHASE MANAGER, MORTENSON

“Love it! Simple to use. Learning curve is minimal. We want more!”

SITE SAFETY MANAGER, MCCARTHY

We Have Your Bottom Line in Mind

The Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ was designed and engineered with feedback from construction industry experts with lofty goals in mind: Reinvent the guardrail to eliminate inefficiencies, cut costs, stop waste, generate quick and long-lasting ROI, and improve safety.

Our market research found the cost of job-built wooden guardrails averages $18.58/linear foot, and that does not factor in lumber cost increases as high as 30% since the start of 2017. We also found estimators are often failing to include significant “true cost” factors like transportation, disposal, inspections, and maintenance required for job-built wooden guardrails in their cost estimates.

The Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ eliminates many recurring project-based costs and allow for quick recovery of acquisition cost and provide a significant return on investment. By purchasing and deploying our system and eliminating wooden 2×4 guardrails, initial cost can be recovered as quickly as two project deployments.
