Clamp Handrail Systems

Clamp handrails have an adjustable bracket allowing for flexible installation over copings of various widths and angles. This system can be used to raise the height of an existing parapet wall if it is lower than the minimum height recommended.

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 plant or ducting. 

This is the preferred method of fall protection should working 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 coping stones which are capable of withstanding the additional loading exerted by the system.

Lightweight material and quick installation make this solution a simple and cost effective rooftop safety system. These systems must be inspected by a suitable Working at Height Specialist Company a minimum of every 12 months.
