Heightsafe’s Aluminium Walkways: Features and Benefits

Versatility for All Roof Types: Our walkways are highly adaptable and can be fitted to various roof types, including standing seam roofs, metal profile roofs, flat roofs, and even pitched roofs using levelling systems. This versatility ensures safe access across diverse roofing structures.

Comprehensive Safety Measures: Safety is paramount. We offer walkways with handrails, optional toe boards, guard rails, and access ladders. These features combine to form a collective safety measure that guarantees anyone accessing the roof does so in full compliance with safety standards.

Enhanced Aesthetics: Aluminium walkways are not just about functionality; they’re also aesthetically pleasing. You have the option to further enhance their appearance with a powder coat or anodised finish. At Heightsafe, we collaborate closely with you to ensure that safety and design are seamlessly integrated.

End-to-End Safe Access: When combined with our cable or track system in restraint or fall arrest, along with steps and ladders, our walkways provide comprehensive end-to-end safe access. Steps are particularly useful for inclined roofing areas and overcoming obstacles.

Roof Preservation: Our aluminium walkways are designed to distribute weight evenly, protecting the integrity of the roof by minimising the risk of creating tiny cracks in the covering. This preservation aspect is crucial for long-term roof health.

Low Maintenance and Eco-Friendly: Aluminium walkways are not only robust but also low maintenance. They do not rust and require no repainting, saving both cost and manpower. Additionally, aluminium is 100% recyclable, aligning with environmental policies and sustainability goals.

Compliance and Regulations: Our aluminium walkways adhere to several crucial standards, including BS 6399-1:1996 for loading on buildings and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998, which mandates annual inspections by competent organisations. These walkways provide collective protection, prevent falls through fragile roof surfaces, and guide workers away from hazards.

Customisation and Continuous Runs: Our walkways can be customised to meet your specific needs. They can be joined end to end to create a continuous run or installed side by side to create safe deck areas, making them highly adaptable to your requirements.

Applications Beyond Roof Access: Our aluminium walkways have a wide range of applications beyond roof access, including screening, solar shading, staging, bridge work, cycle paths, industrial flooring, and ventilation grilles. They are suitable for various sectors, including residential, commercial, education, leisure, industrial, infrastructure, and machinery.
