 UH3000-RC Rail Clamp

 

The UH3000-RBR is a portable retrieval system for use on railroad bridges.  The system has a rail clamp that attaches onto one rail to provide the anchor point location.  The outrigger section is adjustable, enabling the front legs of the base to be positioned at the leading edge of the bridge, making possible the lowering and retrieving of a worker below.  The adjustment flexibility also allows the systems to be set up so that the cable can be lowered between the rails as opposed to over the leading edge of the bridge.  The base may be used with various offset masts in order to obtain the required reach outward.  Davits and winch are ordered separately.

The UH3000-RBR Bridge Rescue System is designed solely as a rescue anchorage system, not a fall arrest anchorage.  In an emergency, the RBR system can accommodate one worker or up to 350 lbs. (159 kg.).  When suspending rescue personnel attached to a personnel winch, there must be an independently-anchored, secondary back-up system capable of supporting 3,600 lbs. (1620 kg.), that is, a 3-way self-retracing lifeline.

The UH3000-RBR consists of

  • UH504-24” Offset Mast
  • UH502-CP Centre Post
  • UH3000-RBR Expandable T-base
  • UH3000-RC Rail Clamp
