Fixed Guardrail Systems
Fixed guardrails eliminate the hazard of falls from height. This is the preferred method of fall protection should working at height be unavoidable.
The system is suitable for multiple users at any time, requiring very basic working at height training making it the ideal solution for regular and long duration maintenance at roof level.
The system can be fixed to various different substrates such as standing seam, composite and built up roofs.
This system minimises space on the roof compared to free standing handrail systems so is ideal for when roof space is an issue or to bring a current parapet wall up to correct height standards.
Fixed guardrails must be inspected by a suitable working at height Specialist Company a minimum of every 12 months.
