KeeGuard® Free Standing Roof Edge Protection System
A modular free standing roof edge protection system that does not penetrate the roof membrane.
Safe environment for all working on a roof
One of the regulatory bodies recommendations in reducing risk taken by people working on a roof is to select and use the right rooftop safety equipment. For contractors and engineers accessing flat roofs to carry out essential building, repair and maintenance work, safety guardrailing afforded by collective roof edge protection system can make a major contribution to minimising danger. The collective system that is selected must meet the highest safety standards. Our KeeGuard® rooftop guardrail system is fully tested and meets or exceeds current rooftop safety requirements. Not all free standing roof edge protection systems offer this level of security of rooftop areas.
KeeGuard® is a modular free standing rooftop guardrail system which does not penetrate the roof membrane. The system works on a proven counterweight system, recycled PVC weights provide high visibility, non-slip secure base that does not penetrate the roof membrane. Galvanised fittings and tube deliver collective protection which ensures a safe working environment for anyone working on a roof.
The KeeGuard® roof edge protection system offers maximum flexibility for most rooftop configurations, almost any flat roof up to 3 degrees can be accommodated. The system is available for different roof types, either for use where a restraining wall such as a parapet is in place or where the rooftop is completely open around the perimeter. The KeeGuard® rooftop guardrail system can be used for retrofitting to older buildings as well as for new constructions.
The KeeGuard® systems is also available in a lightweight aluminium version.
There is also available a KeeGuard® Foldshield folded version and a unique, fixed roof edge protection system named KeeGuard® Topfix especially designed for standing seam metal roofs.
For roofs with a limited space we offer KeeGuard® Premium - the system which does not require counterweights along the full run of the system. This provides the ideal solution for areas where traditional counterweights are unsuitable or potential trip hazards are a concern.
