ROPS/FOPS for heavy-duty industrial and commercial machinery

TopROPS designs and manufactures certified ROPS/FOPS for heavy duty industrial / commercial equipment and machinery. Both ROPS and FOPS are structures on a vehicle that form part of the cabin above the operator and / or passengers. They are designed to minimize the likelihood of operator and passenger injury resulting from accidental overturning during normal operation. In particular, FOPS are intended to ensure that a seated operator and / or passenger are provided with reasonable protection from falling objects, such as rocks or debris. We have designed and manufactured ROPS/FOPS for surface machines as well as underground utility vehicles.

Depending upon the vehicle / machine and application, TopROPS, if required, will manufacture a test device to accommodate the vehicle being fitted. No matter the application, TopROPS will ensure you get the design that’s right for you.

We believe innovation must serve our company and our clients. Our design / engineering team can create and design a custom ROPS and / or ROPS/FOPS system to suit your needs. Striving to be a leader in fabrication of ROPS/FOPS systems means we must constantly evaluate how to serve our clients better.

Our esteemed engineering department is committed to our clients worldwide. Our ROPS and ROPS/FOPS have been designed, tested and proven to outperform the SAE and CSA Standards requirements. We are ISO 9001:2008 registered and adhere to a comprehensive health and safety program. Our welders are Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) Certified and complete weekly evaluations that comply with CWB.

Roll Over Protection Structures and Fall On Protection Structures testing services

TopROPS will design, build, test and certify ROPS and FOPS for any application or any vehicle up to and including large earth-moving machines and rock-drilling equipment. A simulated stress analysis is used to help determine the potential strengths and weaknesses of the structure.

Once a concept design is determined feasible, the prototype is then fabricated with high-grade structural alloys. Prototypes then undergo a series of physical tests and are re-evaluated prior to certification.

All Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and physical / destructive testing is carried out on our eight-acre site in Val Caron Ontario, Canada. Whether fabricating a proven design or turning a concept into a reality, TopROPS has you covered.
