Fixed & Freestanding Handrails
Roof edge protection systems provide collective fall protection for people that need to access or work on flat roofs.
When work at height cannot be avoided, collective fall prevention is at the top of the hierarchy of control measures, as set out in the Work at Height Regulations 2005. Roof edge protection systems provide passive fall protection for all. They require no specialist user training or user action in order to be effective.
Highersafe offers a range of free standing handrail, fixed handrail and guardrail edge protection systems. They are available in galvanised steel, stainless steel and aluminium.
Freestanding handrail and guardrail edge protection systems have a counterweight system. These types of roof edge protection system rely on the counterweight for stability. The counterweight system negates the need for penetration of the roof membrane. They provide quick installation with low ongoing inspection and maintenance requirements.
