The Advantages of KeeGuard Roof Top Railing

KeeGuard Roof Railing Options

The following features and options are available for KeeGuard roof railing. Contact our sales team about any questions you have regarding these options.

  • Counter Balance KeeGuard WeightPost Weighted KeeGuard

    Upright Configurations

    KeeGuard is available with two different options to support the uprights.

    Counter Balance Upright - The counterbalance system spreads the weight out on the roof, reducing the weight strain on the roof. No return sections of railing are required at the end to anchor the system.

    Post Weight - The weighted bases have a smaller footprint and make it easier to fit the railing around equipment that may be close to the roof edge. Post weights also reduce trip hazards since there are no obstructions that stick out into the walking area.

  • KeeGuard Topfix Metal Roof Railing

    Support for Various Roof Types

    Standard KeeGuard is designed to work on a flat roof that has slope of less than 5 degrees.

    KeeGuard for standing steam metal roofs connects to a roof using S-5! standing seam clamps. These clamps allow the railing to be attached to the metal roof without penetrating the roof surface.

    KeeGuard TopFix is designed to work on corrugated metal roofs. This version of KeeGuard requires a base plate that screws into the corrugated metal roof.

  • Durable Roof Guardrail

    Installation Services

    When it comes to Keeguard there are three main types of installation services that we offer:

    Installation Certification - You install the railing, and we come to site to document and certify that it has been installed correctly.

    Installation Supervision - We come to site to oversee a crew that you provide to install the railing.

    Turn-key Installation - We come to site with a crew of people and install the railing for you.

    Get more in-depth information on installation services on the Installation Services page.

  • Integrated Toeboard

    Integrated Toeboard

    The KeeGuard base flange is specially designed to be able to easily connect extruded aluminum toeboard. This is a necessary component of the railing when there is no parapet to protection objects from falling over the edge.

  • Integrated Safety Gates

    Integrated Safety Gates

    Self-closing safety gates guarantee that access point will not be accidentally left open. Using a spring loaded mechanism, the safety gate attaches to the KeeGuard system to provide a safe access point to the roof.

  • Infill Panels

    Infill Panels

    Infill panels are attached to the top and bottom rail of the KeeGuard system and allow the system to act as a fence. Because of wind loading requirements, only approved materials can be attached to the system. Custom pickets and chain link options are available.

  • Durable Roof Guardrail

    Color Options

    The KeeGuard railing system comes in a standard galvanized metal color. The entire system can be powdercoated to any RAL color. Powdercoating is a durable epoxy that coats the surface of the pipe and components. This process is helpful when you need to match the color of the railing to the building.
