(a) Bumpers shall be provided at each end of the trolley travel to prevent trolleys leaving the rails. If the bumpers engage the tread of the wheels, they shall be of a height at least equal to the radius of the wheel. Trolley bumpers shall be capable of stopping the trolley at an average rate of deceleration not exceeding 4.7 feet per second per second when traveling in either direction at 1/3 of the rated load speed. Bumpers shall be designed and installed to minimize parts falling from the trolley in case of breakage.
