Choosing the Right Height Safety System

When selecting a height safety system, it is essential to consider the unique needs of your project. Here, we provide some key factors to consider when choosing between Raptor Needles and other systems.

Load Bearing Capacity

Our overhead rail systems meet or surpass all pertinent Australian standards, codes, and guidelines. As an experienced and independent company, we take pride in our exceptional workmanship, high-quality components, and cost-effective solutions.

Customization and Flexibility

The system should be able to adapt to the specific requirements of your project. Raptor Needles offer a modular design, allowing for adjustments in length, height, and movement.

Maintenance and Recertification

Choose a system that requires minimal maintenance and recertification. Raptor Needles need to be inspected and recertified only at 12-month intervals, ensuring lower long-term costs.

Compliance with Standards

Ensure that the system meets Australian and New Zealand Standards, such as AS/NZS5532:2013, AS/NZS/ISO 22846, and AS/NZS 1891.

Raptor Needles offer a reliable and customizable solution for height safety systems. They outperform competitors like Sayfa in terms of load bearing capacity, flexibility, and maintenance requirements. When choosing a height safety system, make sure to consider the unique needs of your project and prioritize worker safety. At SAS Projects, we are committed to providing the best solutions for your height safety needs.
