Which Form of Guardrail Edge Protection is Better for You?
Working at heights may be unavoidable, but with one of our high-quality guardrail solutions, you can rest assured that you have done what you can to eliminate potential fall hazards. At Altus Safety, we believe that guardrail edge protection should be your preferred method of fall protection in many situations, and we pride ourselves on working closely with our customers to help you understand the benefits of each guardrail, coming to a decision about which solution is best suited to your requirements.
We supply world leading MSA Latchways Versirail Guardrail Systems, which can suit the following needs:
- Freestanding Handrails & Guardrails: Due to their unique counter balance design, these guardrails do not require drilling or penetration, and are therefore suitable for use on most roof types.
- Collapsible Handrails & Guardrail: These guardrails can be folded down when not in use, almost eliminating visibility from ground level. Again, this solution does not require drilling or penetration.
- Fixed Guardrails: The benefit of these systems are their ability to be secured to most materials commonly found at roof level, such as standing seam, composite, concrete, single ply and brick. They are ideal if you want to bring parapet walls up to correct height standards.
- Clamp Handrails: These handrails allow for flexible installation over copings of various widths and angles as a result of the unique adjustable clamp design. They do not require drilling or penetration.
Innovatively Designed Roof Edge Protection
All handrail and guardrail edge protection systems from Altus Safety can be constructed and dismantled easily by workers thanks to their versatile designs, with innovative options for permanent and temporary hazard protection. In addition, the designs are offered in straight, curved and non-trip materials, including galvanised or stainless steel and aluminium with powder-coated finishes, alongside accessories such as spring-loaded gates, mesh infills and toe boards.
As an independent fall protection design, suppliers and installers of safety equipment for heights and hazards, we pride ourselves on recommending solutions that are not only cost effective, but also British Standards compliant. We offer such a recommendation based upon a survey and risk assessment that we carry out as the first step when solving any problem.
