Roof Guard Rail Edge Protection

Free Standing Counterweighted Edge Protection

Fall Protection Solutions design, supply and install roof guard rail.  Our edge protection products are extremely popular as they provide a form of collective protection without the need for harnesses or lanyards.  The Working at Height Regulations 2005 requires that solutions offering collective protection should be given priority over individual harness-based solutions.  Collective protection should be the first consideration for achieving safe roof edge protection.

Most popular is our free-standing counterweighted system which is entirely non-penetrative. The counterweights allow the guard rail to sit on top of the finished roof.

Fixed Roof Guard Rail Edge Protection

Where access is required to standing seam roofs we can clamp our system to the seams.  This is especially effective when combined with our roof walkways as it provides a safe means of traversing the roof at the same time as preventing wear and tear.

Where access is required to metal trapezoidal roofs the guard rail is rivet fixed using EDPM tape and rivets with sealing washers to ensure total water tightness.  We can also fix directly to brick or concrete.


Fall Protection Solutions installation technicians are fully trained in working at height and fully descriptive method statements and risk assessments are provided prior to installation.  We are Safe Contractor approved.

Our operations manager will work with you to ensure and safe and timely installation.  Often the materials can be lifted direct onto the roof by a delivery vehicle with an integrated telehandler.

Our barrier installations are often combined with our fixed ladders to provide a complete access solution.
