Add to that the fact that KeeGuard is the industry leader when it comes to roof fall protection, and you realize that KeeGuard is about assurance and reliability. Don't trust your companies future and an employees life to simple claim, ensure the that railing has been tested to comply with OSHA standards.
KeeGuard roof safety railing first came to the market in 2000 to solve a very distinct problem in the safety industry. The problem was this: how do your provide safety railing on a roof that cannot be penetrated? You want to protect employees working on the roof, but you need to do so in a way that does not cause leaks in your building. Kee Safety solved this problem by creating a railing that used counterbalanced weights to keep the railing upright. The result was a roof railing solution that meet both needs: employee safety and building integrity.
Unfortunately most roofs are designed without considering the people who will work on those roofs or access the equipment that is placed there. The result is that equipment is placed too close to a roof edge, and the proper safety measures are often not in place. KeeGuard allows a railing to be placed around a specific area of the roof or even the entire roof perimeter. The system is designed from modular components which allows it to be custom fit to the area of your roof.
Need to go over a roof duct or some other obstacle? No problem! The modular components allow the railing to navigate around roof top obstacles, while mainting the proper loading requirements. The system is also very simple to install. We offer several levels of installation support, with most customers opting to install the system themselves.

If you're trying to protect a public building, this can be a big issue. Building owners and architects do not like to see a construction style railing appear on their roof. KeeGuard has an architectural look. It uses long contiguous rails to give it an integrated feel. It can also be painted to any RAL color to match the building or left in its standard galvanized grey. KeeGuard also has a unique feature which allows it to be angled back from the roof edge, preserving more of the building aesthetics when viewed from below.
