Metal roofs are becoming increasingly popular due to their low costs to manufacture and maintain, but OSHA Guardrail is still required in certain areas.
Our Metal Roof Fall Protection Systems can be installed in standing seam metal roofs, R Panel Metal Roofs, or Corrugated Metal Roofs. Depending on your specific needs, we have a metal roof safety system for you!
Our metal roof fall protection guardrails are perfect for temporary or permanent solar installations. Place the standing seam metal roof guardrail up before the solar installation, and keep it in place for the continued maintenance of the panels.
Standing Seam Guardrails for Metal Roof Fall Protection
For all standing seam metal rooftops, our AccuFit Standing Seam Metal Roof Guardrail will allow you to meet OSHA compliance with ZERO roof penetrations. Our bases utilize S5 Clamps that engage the existing roof seams. The entire system simply tightens together with stainless steel set screws to create a fully OSHA compliant standing seam roof guardrail system.
Corrugated Roof Guardrail or R Panel Roof Guardrail
For OSHA complaint roof guardrail on corrugated or R Panel rooftops, we utilize our self-drilling tech screws and self-sealing gaskets to ensure installation is simple, but also avoids future leaks. As simple to install as our standing seam roof guardrail system, as well as fully OSHA compliant roof warning lines.
