Non-Penetrating Rooftop Railing

Non-penetrating guardrail is not designed to be temporary, but because it does not physically attach to the structure it can be moved or relocated . In a non-penetrating guardrail system weights hold the system in place rather than fasteners. There are several types of non-penetrating guardrail systems, but they all accomplish the same goal: rooftop fall protection that does not damage the structure or void roof warranties.

To Move or Not to Move... That is the Question

If you are not planning on moving the railing on a regular basis then you want to use one of the non-penetrating railing systems that are listed below. These systems will give you the most durability, the best aesthetics, and the highest quality. If you really do plan to move the railing, then please look at our temporary mobile guardrail.

Integrated Look, Industrial Durability, Fully Compliant

Non-penetrating railing doesn't have to make your rooftop look like a construction site. Our non-penetrating railing systems are designed to create smooth lines that integrate well into the building aesthetics. The railings come with a standard galvanized finish, but can be supplied in custom colors to make integration even more attractive.

All components are full galvanized to ASTM standards. This is not a powder coated railing that will begin to rust in a matter of years. The components used in our non-penetrating guardrail have been known to last for decades even under harsh outdoor conditions.
