A Myriad of Solutions That Meet Every Need

Our solutions for the aviation industry include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Lifeline Solutions – We have provided custom design, engineering and installation services in a variety of facilities. Employees in manufacturing plants use fixed-track lifelines to perform tasks safely on top of aircraft under construction. In fixed-base operator (FBO) and other maintenance facilities, fixed-track lifelines enable workers to safely stand on the roofs or wings of aircraft while providing maintenance and cleaning.
    Where adequate clearance exists, cable can be used in place of rigid track to provide less expensive protection. Sometimes portable fixed-track lifelines also are used, which are mounted on a steel frame on wheels. These units are easily movable around an area, such as an airplane hangar or tarmac, allowing workers to safely perform maintenance and cleaning on different airplanes and helicopters without having a permanent system installed in every potential workspace.
    We also install vertical lifelines next to fixed ladders inside and outside aircraft factories and airport hangars, and provide rooftop fall protection in the form of guardrails, restraint and arrest systems.

  • Specialty Solutions
    Single-Point Anchors – Portable vacuum anchors are used in airport maintenance facilities where workers must climb on top of airplane wings and roofs to service the aircraft. A vacuum anchor is easily moved around to different aircraft and attached to different airplane wings several times a day. Fixed anchorage points can be an ideal, cost-effective solution where maintenance is routinely done in the same area.
    Inspections and Lifeline Modifications – FallProof’s experts inspect existing lifeline systems in airplane hangars and facilities for OSHA and ANSI compliance and certification. Also, when an airplane hangar begins to service new types of aircraft, modifications must often be made to the hangar’s existing systems to accommodate the new footprint. We offer design, engineering, fabrication and installation services for these lifeline modifications.
