Lift-Out Adapters

  • When it is necessary to access equipment or space behind the guard rail system, lift-out rail systems are available for use.  These systems allow the rails to be removed and then dropped into the slots to replace the rail after accessing the area behind the rail



Dura/Flex Guard Rail Specifications

What's to Be Protected

  • Protection equipment is used anywhere through out the plant.  Key areas are office walls, mezzanines, water mains, electrical boxes, expensive equipment and personnel.  The cost of the protection equipment is minimal when considering what is being protected and the cost to repair or replace if it is damaged.

Protection Equipment Specification

  • To ensure the proper protection consider the following:
    • Measure overall length of area that is to be protected
    • Is there a protruding object or other unusual configuration to meaure? (Going around corners)
    • Is this a single or double rail application?
    • Placing protection equipment a minimum of 12" in front of what you're protecting is required to achieve proper installation.
    • Do columns need to be offset on the base plate or is the column to be placed in the corner of the base plate? (Tight space conditions govern this decision.)


  • Once you have measured the overall length of the area to be protected, you must divide length of area by length of rails.  It is recommended to use as few of the the longest rails evenly as possible and still protect the designated area.  The reason for using the longest rail possible in even numbers is both for esthetic and economic considerations.


  • Columns are one of the following:  18" tall for single rail and 42" for double rail.  The most common columns are 18" tall for single rail applications and 42" tall for double rail applications.

Lift-Out Rail

  • Specific dimensional information must be obtained when designing guard rail systems using lift-out rails.  Add 1" to column dimension for lift-out rail design
