Roof Safety Handrails and Guardrails

Edge Protection that collapses completely flat and out of sight when not in use – perfect for listed and historic buildings due to its folding mechanism.

Easy to assemble, Heightsafe’s Collapsible and Folding Guardrails are collapsible when not in use. This style of guardrail complies with the requirements of listed and historic buildings by folding completely flat and out of sight. The perfect solution for visually sensitive buildings. The technology is in the ultra-strong hinged bracket, which allows the system to easily fold down on itself, featuring an integral hinge and removable stainless-steel lynch pin. Erected in a maximum of 10m sections, easily raised and lowered by two people. Being a completely freestanding system, there is no need to penetrate your roof covering for this collective fall prevention measure.
