Permanently Installed Guardrail
Permanently Installed Guardrail provides a ‘passive’ form of fall protection from exposed edges. Permanently installed systems are structurally attached to the existing support structure, and cannot be moved from one location to another. The passive design of this system allows the end user unlimited number of users in the work area.
Permanently Installed Guardrail Lasts
Permanent systems are designed to remain in place for a period of years or for the life of the building. They are used in areas such as where rooftop HVAC or communications equipment is located near a roof edge, requiring maintenance and other personnel to access the area on a periodic basis. It would be impractical to re-install portable railings every time maintenance access is required, so a permanent system would be left in place.
Protect Your Employees with Permanent Guardrail Systems
Permanent guardrails are a safety element for any pedestrian or employee walking in a potentially hazardous area, or working on construction – and is most likely a state requirement for any danger-prone work area. Regardless of whether or not it is a state law for the permanent guardrail system to be installed, it is extremely important to provide safety for everyone. Not only will you be confident that you are protecting workers in the area, but it also helps reduce the chance of any potential lawsuits from not having the safety guardrail installed. It is a short, simple task to do, and as soon as one of our guardrail systems are put into place, you instantly improve the quality of security – and work – on the property.
Applications for permanently installed guardrails include:
