When it comes to ensuring the safety of personnel working at heights, Heightsafe’s Aluminium Walkways are the go-to solution. Our aluminium walkways are meticulously designed and manufactured to meet the stringent standards outlined in BS EN ISO 14122-2:2016: Working Platforms and Walkways. They provide a secure access route on a wide range of roof types, empowering your facilities team to carry out essential cleaning and maintenance tasks with confidence.
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.
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.
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.
