Falls through fragile roofs and fragile roof lights cause death and serious injury. They account for almost a fifth of all the fatal accidents which result from a fall from height in all industries.
The following are likely to be fragile
• Old roof lights
• Old liner panels on built-up sheeted roofs
• Non-reinforced fibre cement sheets
• Corroded metal sheets
• Glass (including wired glass)
• Rotted chipboard; and
• Slates and tiles.
Fallguard is a peripheral fall protection system used in conjunction with roof walkways. Fallguard ensures that if a user falls sideways from a walkway they will not pass through fragile roof sheets or roof lights.
High Access Fallguard can be designed and manufactured in HDPE, Aluminium and galvanised steel. Fallguards can be designed to accommodate all roof types and pitches and can be fixed or free standing for use on membrane, bitumen, green, fragile roofs and trapizoidal roofs.
