The Carnie Cap System is superior to any other rebar impalement protection available today. Unlike traditional rebar caps-which provide little or no impalement protection-the Carnie Cap System, when used properly, will withstand a 250 pound weight dropped from 10 feet without the rebar protruding.
The Carnie Cap is also less expensive than troughs. In fact, only two Carnie Caps are needed per each eight foot section. Plus, by eliminating injuries, installation time and inventory overhead, Carnie Caps not only protect workers, they can protect a company’s bottom line.
Meets CAL-OSHA Construction Safety Orders Section #1712 on impalement protection from concrete reinforcing bars.
Meets OSHA standards for withstanding a 250 pound weight dropped from 7’6" without the rebar breaking through.
When force is applied to the Carnie Cap system, the impact is distributed evenly over the entire length of the lumber.
Before use of this system, read and understand all instructions, warnings, cautions and notes marked on the equipment and contained in these WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS.
The CARNIE CAP™ is designed and tested only as a system. The System includes the CARNIE CAPS™ (Standard size Model #CC-100 for #4 to #9 Bar and Large size Model #CC-200 for #5 to #16 bar), pieces of lumber which are commonly found, Construction Grade Fir 2" x 4"s, 4" x 4"s (nominal) (for use with the Model #CC-100) and 2" x 6"s (nominal) (for use with Model #CC-200), lumber, nails, and common rebar. Other uses with different components should be tested if employers intend to rely on the device for safety of the employees. (Note: 2 pieces of the 2" lumber were tested nailed together to create a 4" nominal thickness.)
Use of components that have not been designed and/or tested for use with this system can be dangerous and lead to injury or death. Contact Carnie Cap Inc. if you are unsure about using an equivalent product.
