Access Rail System
Harken designed the Access Rail system so crews of very large yachts would have a secure system that allows freedom of movement, and the ability to lock into position while working outboard along the hull. The Access Rail system is made up of two joined cars that allow the attachment of the personal suspension and the required fall-arrest systems. Its CE certification is among the most respected marks in the world and unique in the marine industry.
Linked cars are constructed of strong, lightweight, one-piece solid aluminum. The pinstop is easy to release, and the car moves smoothly along the track before locking into another position. Patented wire retaining clips keep balls captive, making cars easy to load and maintain. Composite corner keepers help keep ball bearings captive when the car is off the track.
Cars and track come in black hardcoat-anodized or clear-anodized finishes for corrosion protection, durability, and to match the yacht’s aesthetics. Stainless steel systems can be special ordered from Harken’s Custom Division.
Use the IN10567 car when the track is mounted on a brow or angled on surfaces. The wheel toggle attachment overhangs the edge of the mounting surface so the side of the hull is not chafed.
