Galvanised Roof Walkways for Safety at Height
Galvanised walkways can be used as a collective measure, along with handrails and optional toe boards, to guard hazards. In recent years, galvanised roof walkways have quickly become the preferred method for those businesses for whom working at height is essential.
Year Round Access Using Galvanised Walkways
Along with being used with handrails and optional toe boards, it’s also worth noting that galvanised roof walkways can also be used in conjunction with a cable or track system in restraint or fall arrest. If you happen to require year round access to your roof, then the team at Altus Safety are more than capable of providing non-slip grillage that can be specified to suit your requirements; by adding this to your roof, you can rest assured of all-weather access to your premises roof, in line with current safety standards.
Using Galvanised Walkways for Extra Safety
Galvanised walkways provide your roof with an extremely strong and robust walkway that can be installed freestanding or can be directly applied to an existing structure and suspended permanently by means of secondary steelwork.
This system is compatible with most existing roof surfaces and can be designed to incorporate steps and ladders to provide a full and safe access system for anyone who is required to work on your roof at any time of year.
To ensure the safety of the galvanised walkway, your system must be inspected by a suitable working at height specialist from a reputable company a minimum of every 12 months.
