Guardrail

Typically we come across buildings where there is no roof edge protection and the contractors need access onto the roof for a variety of tasks;

  •  Air Conditioning
  •  Gutter Cleaning
  •  Repair of Earthing Straps
  •  Roof Membrane Repair

The list could go on…

We can install Guardrail Fall Arrest Systems to make sure these jobs can be carried safely with no risk to the contractors.

Safe environment for all working on a roof

One way the HSE recommends to reduce the risk taken by people working on a roof, is to use the right rooftop safety equipment. For contractors and engineers accessing flat roofs to carry out essential building, repair and maintenance work, Safety Guard-Railing can make a major contribution to minimizing danger.

The system that is used must meet the highest safety standards. KeeGuard® rooftop guardrail system is fully tested and meets or exceeds current rooftop safety requirements. Not all free standing roof edge protection systems offer this level of security of rooftop areas.

KeeGuard® is a modular free standing rooftop guardrail system which does not penetrate the roof membrane. The system works on a proven counterweight system, recycled PVC weights provide high visibility, non-slip secure base that does not penetrate the roof membrane. Galvanized fittings and tube deliver collective protection which ensures a safe working environment for anyone working on a roof.
