This includes protection over a localized portion of an aircraft, or coverage over the entire fuselage, wings and tail section. Oftentimes, the working surface for aircraft maintenance personnel can be relatively low, particularly on smaller aircraft. This creates a situation in which the design of the system must give particular consideration to the fall clearance distance, to ensure that the worker is brought to a stop prior to contacting the lower level. Other considerations include the proper system configuration to eliminate, or minimize, swing fall hazards.
I wanted to follow-up on the system installation. We are pleased with the outcome. Your crew was excellent; they arrived prepared for the cold weather work. The temperature here in Denver reach -17 degrees below zero the night before and never exceeded +7 while they were here. They completed the work without issue, cleaned up after themselves and provided us with superb training and recommendations. Thank you for completing the projects before the year’s end.

All of these considerations must be made in conjunction with the structural capacity of the roof framing system. Ultimately, the engineer must design a system that adequately protects the work area, provides suitable fall protection, limits deflection and free fall, is designed for the appropriate number of users and does not introduce excessive loads into the supporting roof structure.
Evan Fall Protection has designed fall protection systems utilizing single point anchors, multi-span horizontal lifeline systems, trolley beam systems and our own innovative post-tensioned fall protection system. Our list of successful installations includes military aircraft hangars from Florida to Alaska and the world’s largest aircraft maintenance facility which was completed in 2004.
Evan Fall Protection’s proven approach ensures the highest level of worker safety, OSHA compliance and peace of mind.
Overhead Rigid Rail Systems can be installed from overhead to near ground level elevations. The rail systems provide the option for an enclosed or open track. The enclosed track features single, dual or triple tracks permitting users to bypass one another.
Overhead Cable Systems can be installed from overhead to ground level elevations. The cable systems are economical and manufactured from stainless steel. They offer the user exceptional functionality through its free flowing bypass capability and ability to navigate corners.
Evan Fall Protection has created a proven process for distinct fall protection and access solutions. Our Portable Access Systems can be customized based on the customer’s application requirements and design constraints. The systems can be fabricated at various heights/widths with diverse wheel styles to meet any site conditions.
Maintenance Platforms provide passive fall protection with an emphasis on Osha compliance, safety, access and ergonomics. Aircraft and Vehicle Platforms are manufactured with three design options providing the versatility to match the design with the client’s site requirements. Phase platform designs cover all maintenance areas.
Our anchorage connectors are built from top quality materials guaranteeing high strength and durability to stand up to the toughest environments. Anchorage connectors are the unsung heroes of most fall protection systems, often overlooked but critical components because they securely attach your system to the anchorage.
