Roof guardrail has one primary purpose: to keep people back from the edge of the roof and prevent a dangerous fall. Falls from height still top OSHA's leading cause of workplace deaths. Setting up a guardrail is the safest way to protect people who are working on a roof.
The roof is a hostile environment. Not only is it dangerous, but it is is exposed to the entire spectrum of the elements: wind, rain, snow, etc. Therefore, whatever goes onto a roof needs to be resistant to corrosion. The last thing anyone wants to do is spend the time and money to install a roof railing, only to replace it several years later! The KeeGuard roof guardrail is completely galvanized to protect each component from moisture corrosion. Additionally, the system is made of non-welded cast components which means that joints will not become a focus point for corrosion.
There is no sense in having a roof guardrail that does not protect people from falling! This is at the heart of the OSHA regulation for guardrail. KeeGuard roof guardrail has been tested by a third-party to give you peace of mind. It has been fully tested to OSHA 1910.23, the primary section of the OSHA code that relates to guardrail.
Obstacles on the roof will not be able to be moved to accommodate a guardrail. Having a guardrail system that can help navigate things such as: roof height changes, angles in the roof, and ducts going over the edge of the roof is critical to providing complete protection to the people who are working on the roof. KeeGuard uses modular components that allow it to successfully navigate all kinds of obstacles that are attached to the roof.
No one is going to approve a fall protection railing that makes their roof leak. This is one of the reasons why one of KeeGuard's principal features is that it is non-penetrating. Through the use of counter-balanced and posted weighted uprights the roof will not need to be penetrated in order to provide a fully compliant roof guardrail. KeeGuard is designed to protect your personnel as well as your rooftop.
