Rooftop Fall Protection Solutions

Weighted Guardrail

The safest, most comprehensive rooftop fall protection solution is a  guardrail system. Our free-standing roof edge railing systems bring rooftops into OSHA/ANSI/IBC compliance.

Horizontal Lifeline

Our energy absorbing lifeline systems are designed to provide workers with freedom of movement on the rooftop while securely attached to the lifeline at all times.

Rigid Post Anchors

Used in situations where collective protection is not available, our rigid post anchor systems provide active and/or restraint fall protection in the absence of guardrails.

Crossovers & Walkways

Innovative and flexible systems that create safe routes over objects and obstructions on the rooftop without penetrating the roof membrane.

Self-Closing Gates

Ideal for protecting ladder/stair access points, roof hatches, walkways, and access to restricted areas where regular maintenance and/or inspection is needed.

Weighted Anchor

Our mobile deadweight anchors are engineered for single or multiple users, for restraint or active fall protection, on roofs with up to a 5 degree pitch.

Skylight Screens

Protect people from falling through fragile roof lights with our adaptable screen systems for skylights on flat, trapezoidal and standing seam roofs.

Skylight Guardrail

Ideal for high traffic areas near rooftop equipment, our free-standing skylight fall protection system does not penetrate your roof’s surface or block sunlight.

Hatch Kits

Provide safe egress and ingress through roof hatches, simplify the transition from ladder to rooftop and protect the roof opening when the hatch is open.
