Roof Walkway and Step Overs
Fall Protection Solutions design, supply, install, certify and maintain roof walkways and step over’s. A well designed roof walkway facilitates safe movement and prevents wear and tear of the roof. Roofs are often cluttered and our walkways and step overs provide a safe access route. Often our roof walkways are combined with our guard rail and fixed roof access ladders to provide complete access solutions.
The fully guarded aluminium walkway with GRP tread is especially popular thanks to being light weight and robust with excellent longevity. This system can be configured to any kind of roof. We can clamp to standing seam roofs, rivet to metal trapezoidal roofs and lay free standing weighted walkways and steps to single ply and felt flat roofs. Roof Walkways can also be placed on top of parapets and fixed back to the side of the structure.
Roofs can be subject to wear and tear of foot traffic. Installing a walkway system along your most frequented routes protects the roof from damage. The safety of your operatives is also improved by providing a level, high friction surface to walk on as well as in many cases providing guard rails either side.
Where guard rail is not appropriate, a roof walkway can often be combined with a roof safety line to provide safe access.
All our roof walkways are designed and installed to BS EN 516:2006 ‘Prefabricated accessories for roofing. Installations for roof access. Walkways, treads and steps’.
Our installation technicians are all trained in working at height and operate to the highest safest standards. Fall Protection Solutions are Safe Contractor Approved and provide full Method Statements and Risk Assessments to our clients prior to installation on site.
