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 system is made up of two joined cars that allow the attachment of the personal suspension system and the required fall-arrest system. Its CE certification is among the most respected marks in the world and unique in the marine market.
Linked cars are constructed of strong, lightweight, one-piece solid aluminum. Torlon® bearings handle high loads, reducing friction as you smoothly move the pinstop car and lock it to another position on the track. Stainless steel wire guides keep ball bearings captive when the cars are removed for maintenance.
Cars and track come in black Hardkote-anodized or clear-anodized finishes for corrosion protection, durability, and to match the aesthetics of your yacht. Stainless steel systems can be special ordered through the Harken Custom Department.
