The Horizontal Under-eave Guard System (HUGS) is a passive, truss mounted rooftop fall protection system. The HUGS guardrail system accommodates most wood or metal trusses and sets the standard for rooftop fall protection. HUGS provides the most uninterrupted fall protection, from the sheathing process through the roofing process.
The HUG System is the lowest cost, is easy to install, easy to remove and reusable. HUGS the only roof mounted safety railing system that allows for a complete re-roof. From tear off thru finished roof.
Through the use of removable or throw-away brackets the HUGS guardrail system is attached to roof truss and the rafter rails under the eave of the roof. 2x4s are used to fill in as toeboard, and two horizontal safety rails. When the roofing is complete, the system can be easily removed. Screw on brackets can be removed and used again, or the nail-on brackets can be left on and sealed under the roof trim. Given its portable nature, it can be used on one job site and then taken down and moved to a new site easily.
HUGS attachment brackets are designed for use with 2x4, 2x6, 2x8, 2x10 and 2x12 lumber.
