Counterbalance Design for Ultimate Safety
Our Freestanding Roof Edge Protection systems are designed with a proven counterbalance configuration. This innovative design eliminates the requirement to penetrate the roof, safeguarding your roof’s structural integrity. Whether your team needs to access or work on flat roofs, our Freestanding Guardrail and Handrail systems are the ideal choice.
Adaptable and Versatile
One of the key advantages of our freestanding weighted guardrails is their adaptability. These systems can be easily moved and reconfigured to meet the specific needs of your space. Additional elements can be added, and the installation process is quick and hassle-free.
The Freestanding Edge Protection features key components such as Main and Intermediate Uprights, adjustable heights ranging from 850mm to 1350mm, removable top riser units, and stainless steel grub screws and clinch nuts for exceptional durability. Made from pre-galvanized steel tube, our 2.5-meter cross rails and pre-cut handrails are lightweight, easy to carry at just 20kg, and won’t damage the roof surface. They can be D-End or Wall Fixed and are designed with the highest standards of safety in mind.
