Using proven counterbalance design, the configuration of Heightsafe’s Freestanding Roof Edge Protection systems provide the ability to protect personnel with no need to penetrate the roof surface.
The system offers a collective measure of personal protection for those required to access and work on flat roofs. Freestanding Guardrail and Handrail offers the benefit of not directly penetrating the roof space, meaning it can be moved and changed to suit the needs of the space.
Additional elements can be added, the configuration can be easily changed, and the system is quick and easy to install. Freestanding Edge Protection is made using a counterbalance design, with recycled PVC rubber feet providing a non-slip base, and galvanised steel frames that offer the highest form of protection.
It is recommended that collective protection systems should be tested and inspected at frequencies not exceeding 12 months. It would also be worth considering that these systems should be tested every 6 months for total peace of mind. Heightsafe also provide Testing and Maintenance, ensuring your collective edge protection is compliant.
Q: Will this system cause damage to my roof? A: No, Freestanding Weighted Guardrails have no impact on the existing roof surface, providing a collective means of protection whilst having no effect on any existing roof warranty’s you may have in place.
