Fixed Edge Protection


Due to the system permanently fixing to parapets, this form of Edge Protection delivers 24/7 protection for personnel Working at Height.

Heightsafe’s only permanent guardrail and handrail delivers fixed protection 24/7 and prevents falls from height. Parapet Walls should be no less than 1100mm high and if any lower, can present a danger to anyone working on your roof.  The HSE’s Working on Roofs (INDG 284) covers this specific area and requires the first line of defence to be a collective measure i.e. Guardrail.

The ideal edge protection system for a parapet wall, secures onto the coping stones on top of the wall (dependent on condition). The height of these guardrails is adjustable when using a 5mm allen key.
