Modular Rooflight Protection
Modular roof light protection eliminates the hazard of falls from height on fragile surfaces.
Similar to skylight safety nets, 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 is completely freestanding on PVC feet meaning there is no need for drilling or penetration of the roof membrane – suitable to protect new and existing roof lights.
Tested to BS EN 14122, with a fully modular design to suit any rooflight – it is a cost effective off the shelf solution. These systems must be inspected by a suitable working at height Specialist Company a minimum of every 12 months.
