VERTICAL & HORIZONTAL APPLICATIONS

The unique differentiation of the Taurus Universal Rail System is that one system can be used in both vertical and horizontal applications. Compatible with all ladder types and substructures, the rail system can fixed up, along and down various levels on a structure allowing the user to constantly remain connected. 

Manoeuvrable rail connections and end seals can be very simply installed, and easily curve and bend elements optional adapt themselves perfectly to the actual constructional conditions.

CONSTANT CONNECTION & MOVABLE TRAVELLER

Like most rail and cable systems, the Taurus Universal Rail System allows users to move through the use of traveller (or mobile anchorage point). Connecting to the traveller via lanyard or fall-arrest device, users have the flexible to enjoy continuous hands-free connection allowing them to travel freely and complete works. 

HANDS-FREE SYSTEM TRANSFER

The Taurus Gear module allows the free movement between three different horizontally fixed rail systems - think of a rotating platform for vehicles. The user simply moves the traveller into the Gear module before rotating the module to the line they wish to transfer too.

  • Maximum freedom of movement along the entire length of rail with corresponding rail slider also suitable for abseiling work.
  • Large fastening spacing possible on all surfaces.
  • High-quality design, available in all colour versions.

VERTICAL FIXING DETAILS

The rail can be mounted to most types of ladders, providing safe and smooth vertical movement. A simple fastening bracket is attached to steps on the ladder with the rail system running in the centre on the outside of the ladder. 

For a complete solution, the Taurus-Step ladder can be used to eliminate the need for the ladder attachment. The Taurus-Step ladder is connected to the façade/substructure
(steel, concrete, etc.) by means of a mounting bracket and serves as a climbing aid. 

 

HORIZONTAL FIXING DETAILS

The rail can be mounted above, on the wall or below the users. It can also be mounted on raised posts (maximum of 3m apart) or directly into steel structures or concrete.
