Clamp Handrail Systems Allow for Easy Installation
Clamp handrail systems are easily installed due to their integral flexible design. They are comprised of preformed pieces of tubing with intricate connecting parts which allow the installer to build the handrails around complex shapes and objects. These adjustable brackets can be used at various heights and angles, with varying tube lengths to allow for their flexible installation.
Suitable for a Range of Applications
Clamp handrails can be used to raise the height of an existing parapet wall if it is lower than the minimum height recommended. Due to the nature of clamp handrails, this system is an easily installed, lightweight collective measure ideal for re-roofing projects. Where loadings on the roof are an issue for heavier forms of roof edge protection, such as folding guardrails or free standing handrails, clamp handrails offer a versatile solution. They are also perfect for navigating obstructions on the roof such as plants or ducting.
Clamp Handrails: An Ideal Solution for Working at Height Safety
Clamp handrails are the preferred method of fall protection should work at height be unavoidable and there are complex structures near the edge of the roof. The system is suitable for multiple users at any time, requiring basic working at height training making it the ideal solution for regular and long duration maintenance at roof level. Clamp handrail systems use a simple clamp mechanism meaning there is no need for drilling or penetration of the roof membrane – suitable for use on good quality parapets which can withstand the additional loading exerted by the system.
A Cost-Effective Solution
Lightweight material and quick installation make this solution a simple and cost-effective rooftop safety system, especially when compared to traditional methods of handrail production which would likely involve welding and specialist tool use. These systems must be inspected by a suitable Working at Height Specialist Company a minimum of every 12 months.

In line with the working at height regulations a Clamp Handrail provides a collective measure making it the preferred system of choice for specific fall protection situations by providing a permanent edge protection. The Health and Safety Executive’s hierarchy of control states if working at height cannot be avoided, then the first consideration should be to use collective measures.
Clamp Handrails comply with the following standards:
- BS EN 13374:2013 – Class A
- HSG-33 Health & Safety in Roof Work
- HSE INDG 284 “Working on roofs”
- BS EN ISO 14122-3:2001
Testing/Inspection standards and frequency:
BS EN 13374 for Temporary Edge protection systems – minimum of every 12 months by a working at height specialist company
Clamp Handrails are available in a range of materials and finishes, Please see below:
- Galvanised Steel
- Stainless Steel
- Powder Coated to any RAL colour
Clamp Guardrails are available in curved, incline or straight options.
This system uses a simple clamp mechanism meaning there is no need for drilling or penetration of the roof membrane – suitable for use on good quality coping stones which are capable of withstanding the additional loading exerted by the system.
A Clamp Handrail has a modular design which allows for onsite reconfiguration if needed, making it the ideal solution for retrofitting to older buildings as well as new build constructions.
Clamp guardrails are also known as:
Parapet guardrail, temporary guardrail, edge protection, safety railing.
These systems are commonly installed in the following sectors:
