GUARDRAILS

Roof Guardrails

Safety guardrail systems are used at the perimeter edge of a roof to protect personnel working within a fall zone. Ideal for isolated locations of fall hazard such as a single mechanical unit at the edge of the building.

  • Standard guardrail height is 42"

WorkSafeBC prefers passive fall protection systems as no training is required and there is no additional equipment such as ropes & harnesses to get tangled in.

Ground Level Guardrails

When the general public will come in contact with the ground level guardrails we build them from round pipe as it is more comfortable on the hands and eliminates hard corners for safety.

Choose from 2 sizes of pipe, 1 1/4" , or 1 1/2" for heavier duty.

Modular Guardrails / Structural Fittings

Modular guardrails are a reusable guardrail system where complex configurations can be produced quickly & efficiently.

  • Safe for assembly on rooftops as there is no "hot work" being done like welding on site.

Guardrails are offered in 2 pipe sizes, 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" along with cast iron structural pipe fittings.
