Holistic edge protection for sloped roofs


Edge protection for sloped roofs can be difficult, particularly if you need to provide a safe means of regularly accessing the roof right up to its edge.
However, by using several of our roof rails and walkovers together, you can put in place a route to the edge that does not need individuals to step directly on to an unsafe surface gradient.
Our stepped walkway can traverse gradients in the direction of the slope, turning a sloped roof into a series of flat steps, usually following a bespoke design process.
The stepped walkway is tailored to fit the slope of your roof, and our clamping systems can cut fitting times in half, with associated cost savings.

At the edge of the building, our pitched roof walkway offers a flat surface across the gradient, with levelling brackets that, again, are tailor-made to suit the angle of slope.
Finally, the true edge protection element should anybody slip or trip comes in the form of our front-fix guardrail, which can provide a last line of defence against an individual stumbling beyond the edge of the roof.
