The Dangers of Skylights
While domed skylights provide character to the interior of buildings and natural light, they also pose a serious fall hazard for those working on the rooftop. OSHA actually makes no distinction between holes and unguarded skylights, therefore requiring the skylight either be designed to meet a required load test, or some guarding is provided to protect workers in the event of a fall. Please don’t overlook unprotected skylights on your rooftop, and ensure those on the rooftop are safe by supplying our Skylight Screen, Skyview Skylight Guardrail, or Skyguard Skylight cage.
Skylight Fall Protection Made Simple
The Skyguard Skylight Screens are probably the simplest solutions to skylight fall protection available on the market. Just place the Skyguard Skylight Screen directly over the skylight and use compression pads to secure the guards in place. Our powder coated safety yellow finish ensures that our Skyguard Skylight Protection System is seen by all on the rooftop, and protections them from falling through the opening in the event of fall or trip. Installation should not take more than 10 minutes per skylight. Completely non-penetrating, OSHA compliant and CALOSHA compliant. Available in a variety of sizes.
