Roof guardrails - free standing and fixed roof edge protection

Roof edge protection guardrails systems are a critical safety component in collective fall protection systems. Free standing or fixed handrails providing reliable roof edge protection play a vital role in providing a safe environment for all those who have to work at height.

STQ Vantage brings you in-depth expertise in the design and fitting of safety guard rail systems to protect roof perimeters, walkways and access points, for any type of flat or inclined roof space, on commercial and industrial buildings.

Free standing roof edge protection handrail systems

Where only occasional rooftop access is required, free standing guardrails are more than adequate for collective fall protection. These lightweight handrails use a non-slip, counter-weighted system that avoids penetrating the roof membrane. Collapsible variants are also available to help minimise impact on building aesthetics.

Fixed roof edge protection handrail systems

And where there’s a more regular need for rooftop access, particularly in situations where a team of people need to be protected, permanent, fixed hand rails are the solution of choice for collective fall protection.

Training - Collective roof edge fall protection guardrail system.  The benefit of using a collective protection system, is it reduces the need for training. Where areas are accessed on semi-frequent or frequent basis, this can be very effective, especially if they maintenance personnel are not trained in using personal height safety equipment. 


Demarcation Barriers

However, not all situations need guardrail, but may require a system to direct those working on roofs.


In some instances, where a rigid guardrail is not required, a demarcation barrier system can be more appropriate. It is often used to guide roof traffic away from danger zones, reducing the risk of falling. Installed in Swansea, Wales.
