ROOFTOP GUARDRAILS

Collective protection, such as rooftop handrails and edge protection guardrails, is the preferred solution when people need to access a roof regularly.

This is because they ensure that anyone going onto or working on the roof is always safe without needing specialist training.

 

FREESTANDING EDGE PROTECTION

Cantilevered guardrail systems are the most popular form of edge protection because they don’t need to be fixed to the roof or its membrane. This overcomes the potential for costly leaks or damage to the surface.

Systems can be quickly and easily installed and are suitable for virtually any configuration of flat roof with a pitch up to 10°.

Our collective freestanding guardrail solutions include standard vertical, raked, and radiused systems. We can also install a collapsible system that folds down. This protects the building’s aesthetics when fall protection is not needed.

THE BEST SOLUTION FOR YOUR REQUIREMENTS

Not sure what solution you need? Our team of qualified engineers will conduct a site survey or work to your drawings/specifications. They’ll then advise you on the best solution for your requirements and budget.  

If freestanding is not suitable for your roof, we can provide top fix guardrails for metal roofs. And if space is an issue, we have systems that can fix to the top of a parapet or side of the building.  

Our range of freestanding and fixed guardrails are tested to UK and EU safety standards, including:

GUARDRAIL SYSTEMS PROVIDE PERMANENT EDGE PROTECTION WITHOUT THE NEED TO MECHANICALLY FIX THOUGH THE ROOFING MEMBRANE OR ROOF STRUCTURE.

Where regular access or maintenance is required, Height of Safety can install a modular edge protection system that can be for temporary or permanent use.

The versatility of this system sets it apart, for use on existing building or new builds includes standard vertical, raked, radiused and folding applications. Freestanding edge protection does not require fixing into the roof due to it’s proven cantilevered system using recycled PVC weighted bases and can be used on almost all roof substrates with a pitch of up to 10 degrees.
