Edge Protection Solutions For Talbot Green Superstore


The Client

With an unwavering commitment to sustainability, they continually seek ways to enhance its operations. Recently, at their Pontyclun Talbot Green superstore location, they faced the challenge of upgrading outdated roof guardrails to ensure the safety and efficiency of its maintenance processes. Entrusting Heightsafe with this crucial task, they sought a solution that would not only meet safety standards but also align with its commitment to excellence.

The Brief

The existing guardrails at Pontyclun’s Talbot Green site had reached the end of its lifespan, calling for a robust replacement. Their primary concern was to facilitate safe access to the roof for maintenance activities while adhering to stringent safety regulations. Heightsafe was tasked with designing and implementing a comprehensive edge protection system that would address these concerns effectively, including the removal of the old guardrail.

The Solution

Drawing upon our expertise and in-house design capabilities, we devised a tailored solution to meet their unique requirements.

This system, comprising 204lm of guardrails, was meticulously designed to provide collective protection for users while ensuring ease of access and compliance with safety standards. Manufactured from 100% recycled PVC compound, the weighted feet were strategically placed at every upright, guaranteeing stability and durability. With uprights spaced at optimal intervals and designed to suit vertical heights, our solution met BS EN 13374 Class A & BS 13700 standards, ensuring utmost safety and reliability.
