Safety Rail System –  American Made & Construction-Grade™

Our team of construction safety experts spent two years in the field asking you, the Trades men and women, 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, controlling access around equipment, trenching and excavations.

 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 a hit!  We had OSHA onsite for an onsite safety consultation and even they loved them!”

PROJECT SUPERINTENDENT , LIFETIME CONSTRUCTION

“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.”

KRISTINA MAHLER , PARTNERSHIP DIRECTOR - BUILDWITT MEDIA GROUP

“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.

“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.”

TAYLOR GUNKEL, SUPERINTENDENT & DESIGN PHASE MANAGER, MORTENSON

“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

“The guardrails worked perfectly for what we purchased them for.  Thank you so much for the great service and follow-up”.

ERIC GRESHAM, GENERAL SUPERINTENDENT WHITING - TURNER

“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.”

BEAU BUNE, MORTENSON SAFETY MANAGER

“The rails are great. The sustainable reuse has allowed for these to pay for themselves.”

LEED GREEN ASSOCIATE PROJECT MANAGER, HEALTHCARE - DENVER, CO.

“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

“The Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ will alleviate human error during installation process. Very simple to use two bases, two pins, and rails. 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.”

RUSSELL SADLER , MESSER SAFETY - NASHVILLE, TN

“The Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ is a phenomenal product by the way, we couldn’t be happier!”

TYLER SNELL, SR. SAFETY SPECIALIST, JE DUNN. DENVER, CO

“Anytime we need expert assistance, they respond immediately. Hilmerson’s staff is professional and knowledgeable.”

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

“I can honestly say, your Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ has already saved us substantial time and money while keeping our workers safe. Thank you!”

SONNY KAMPER, DIRECTOR OF SITE WORK & UTILITIES, L. KEELEY CONSTRUCTION

“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.”

TAYLOR GUNKEL, SUPERINTENDENT & DESIGN PHASE MANAGER, MORTENSON

“We’ve used the Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ on 2 jobs now and I love it!  Fast and Easy install”

BRIAN MCPHERSON, SUPERINTENDENT RYAN COMPANIES

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

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 allows for quick recovery of acquisition cost and provides a significant return on investment. By purchasing and deploying our system and eliminating wooden 2×4 guardrails, initial cost can be recovered in as quickly as two project deployments.
