Skylight Fall Protection Covers

Skylight Covers

Specialist Skylight Fall Protection Systems safeguard your personnel, tools, and workspaces from potential falls through fragile surfaces while ensuring ample natural light. Accidents involving individuals falling through fragile roof covers and skylights are alarmingly common, making Skylight Fall Protection a critical consideration.

Last Updated: 7th May 2024

Skylights are a popular feature in various commercial and industrial buildings, serving as a sustainable source of natural light that reduces energy consumption. However, these architectural elements can pose significant safety risks, which is where Heightsafe’s Skylight Covers come into play.

Why Skylight Fall Protection Matters

Heightsafe’s Skylight Covers serve a dual purpose: shielding skylights from falling objects like tools and debris and providing a protective barrier for personnel, preventing them from accidentally stepping on fragile surfaces. When combined with other safety mechanisms and training, Skylight Fall Prevention Covers create a comprehensive safety net, substantially reducing the risks associated with fragile roof covers and skylights.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: How Is Skylight Fall Protection Fixed into Position?

    A: Our Galvanised Steel Mesh Skylight Covers are secured using tamper-proof Tek Screws with a Mastic Barrier for weatherproofing. Additionally, GRP framed Skylight Fall Protection systems can be attached directly to the deck or clamped to Standing Seam roofs, avoiding roof membrane penetration. Our freestanding systems are designed to be non-penetrative.

    Q: When Should Skylight Fall Protection Be Used?

    A: Skylight Covers should be considered whenever there are daylight solutions on a ‘working’ roof due to the vulnerability of the materials used in these systems. Skylight Fall Protection is an essential element of any Work at Height access strategy, particularly when working on fragile surfaces. To ensure full compliance with regulations, Heightsafe specialists recommend incorporating Access Ladders, Roofing Walkways, and Roof Access Hatches into these strategies.
