OSHA Compliant Guardrail & Safety Railing

A Weldless, Cost Effective Safety Rail System that Exceeds OSHA Safety Standards

Cost Effective OSHA Railing

No Specialized Labor, Permits or Tools - Welded solutions often require special permits and dangerous construction methods. Unlike a welded solution, our OHSA railing can be safely installed by any contractor or maintenance personnel . In addition to savings on specialized labor, our OSHA railing system saves you time, allowing you to quickly complete your guardrail installation.

Durable & Modular Railing

Save on Maintenance Costs - Because our OSHA railing system is modular if a portion of the rail becomes damaged it can easily be replaced (see this post "How Well Does Your Railing Break?").

Additionally, because our OHSA guardrail is not welded, the galvanization remains intact keeping the railing rust free for many years longer than welded rail.

Industrial Strength OSHA Guardrail

Great for outdoor and industrial use - the strength of our OSHA guardrail solutions are comparable to welded rail and are designed to exceed OSHA standards. Modular railings built with Kee Klamp railing fittings are a safe and affordable metal guardrail solution.

What are the OSHA Codes that Apply to Safety Railing Installation?

The section of the OSHA code that applies most directly to guardrail and safety railing is 1910.23. Specifically the following sections are the most relevant to guardrail construction. Our railing system meets or exceeds all of these OSHA requirements.

  • 1910.23(e)(1) - A standard railing shall consist of top rail, intermediate rail, and posts, and shall have a vertical height of 42 inches nominal from upper surface of top rail to floor, platform, runway, or ramp level. The top rail shall be smooth-surfaced throughout the length of the railing. The intermediate rail shall be approximately halfway between the top rail and the floor, platform, runway, or ramp. The ends of the rails shall not overhang the terminal posts except where such overhang does not constitute a projection hazard.
  • 1910.23(e)(3)(ii) - For pipe railings, posts and top and intermediate railings shall be at least 1 1/2 inches nominal diameter with posts spaced not more than 8 feet on centers.
  • 1910.23(e)(3)(iv) - The anchoring of posts and framing of members for railings of all types shall be of such construction that the completed structure shall be capable of withstanding a load of at least 200 pounds applied in any direction at any point on the top rail.
  • 1910.23(e)(4) - A standard toeboard shall be 4 inches nominal in vertical height from its top edge to the level of the floor, platform, runway, or ramp. It shall be securely fastened in place and with not more than 1/4-inch clearance above floor level. It may be made of any substantial material either solid or with openings not over 1 inch in greatest dimension.
