Create a safe access route for personnel Working at Height with Heightsafe’s Aluminium Walkways that suit a wide range of roof types.
Our aluminium walkways are manufactured in accordance with BS EN ISO 14122-2:2016: Working Platforms and Walkways. The system provides safe access on a wide range of roofs, allowing your facilities team to carry out essential cleaning and maintenance tasks.
We can supply aluminium walkways with handrails and optional toe boards. When specified with guard rails and access ladders it can form a collective measure that ensures anyone accessing the roof does so in a safe, compliant manner.
Aluminium walkways provide permanent safe access across fragile roof coverings when fixed to any good quality structure that is capable of withstanding the additional loading. Our aluminium walkways are lightweight, strong and can be fitted to a variety of different roof types such as a standing seam roof, metal profile roof and a flat roof. We can use levelling systems that allow aluminium walkways to be used to provide safe access when traversing a pitched roof.
When combined with our cable or track system in restraint or fall arrest, along with steps and ladders, it ensures your roof has end to end safe access. Steps can be used for safe access of inclined roofing areas and to step over obstacles.
Aluminium walkways tend to be the most aesthetically pleasing choice of walkway system, with flexible options to enhance the appearance further with a powder coat or anodised finish. At Heightsafe we work with you to understand your requirements, considering all aspects of safety and design during the process.

Heightsafe were enlisted by Thomas Ford and Partners – Architects that specialise in transforming historic environments through building conservation – to install walkway systems on the top of both the Octagon and the West Tower, so that those carrying out vital restorative works would be safe whilst doing so. The Cathedral’s origins are around 672 AD, with the current structure dating back to around 1083, and so the building required a subtle solution that would not be seen from various different angles whilst maintaining the highest safety standards.
