UPVC Walkways and Access Systems

Last Updated: 8th April 2022

Provide a safe route over fragile roof spaces for personnel completing maintenance tasks at height with Heightsafe’s UPVC Walkway.

Heightsafe Systems’ UPVC walkway can be used as a collective measure on all major roof types, when installed in conjunction with other work at height safety and access equipment such as handrails and guardrails.

UPVC walkways from Heightsafe are available in a choice of colours to suit specific project requirements.

Compatible with most roof types including barrel and curved roofs. We can manufacture bespoke fixings to suit. These are self-sealing and suitable for fixing any profile. UPVC walkways are sometimes referred to as plastic walkway, stepped roof walkway, plastic rooftop walkway or simply walkway.

  • Why do I need a walkway?
    • Provides collective protection for anyone working or accessing the roof
    • Prevents a person falling through a fragile roof surface
    • Avoids someone accidentally stepping on a roof light
    • Creates a defined route and guides workers away from hazards
    • Protects the integrity of the roof – foot traffic can create tiny cracks in the covering
    • Easy and safe access up a roof slope or across a pitched roof.
  • Why do I need to access the roof?
    • Repairs and maintenance to the roof surface
    • Access to HVAC and other plant
    • Cleaning / maintenance of gutters or roof lights
    • Testing and inspection eg lightning protection
    • Plus others.
  • Testing and Inspection

    Walkway systems should be tested and inspected every 12 months to EN 516 in order to ensure they remain compliant and safe – a requirement of The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998.

    Testing and inspection should be carried out by a company that specialises in work at height and has suitable qualifications and experience.
