Skylight Protection provides a protective measure for roof lights and fragile roofs which can complement collective measures and personal protection equipment to provide complete safety against falls from height.
On average 7 people each year are killed after falling through a fragile roof or fragile roof light. These accidents usually occur whilst operatives are carrying out routine maintenance activities on roofs of factories and warehouses.
Skylight fall protection is available in UPVC, Galvanised Mesh, Modular and Netting. Altus Safety can provide expert advice on which type of fragile surface solution will meet your specific requirements, carrying out professional risk assessments and site surveys to establish the best fix to your problem.
UPVC and Galvanised Mesh Skylight covers are light in weight and fire resistant – suitable to be fixed permanently to all types of new and existing roofs.
Modular roof light protection 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 roof light or access hatch – it is a cost effective off-the-shelf solution.
Netted skylight covers are available in any size and are secured using a ratchet strap. Various options are available where no secure method of fixing is evident to the roof kerb. This easily stored solution makes it the perfect addition to operatives PPE or within vehicles to deploy whenever required.
