Parapet Railing FAQs

How high does a roof parapet railing need to be?

The top rail should be 42 inches in height above the walking surface to meet OSHA standards. The height of the posts will depend on the height of the parapet wall and whether you are attaching it to the top of the parapet or to the wall of the parapet.

Is my parapet wall enough for fall protection?

It depends on the height of a parapet. If your parapet is shorter than 38 inches, it's simply not high enough to meet the guidelines and isn't considered sufficient. OSHA allows for a +/- 3 inches variance on the 42 inches height requirement, allowing a 39 inches parapet wall to be sufficient.

Can my roof parapet railing be powder-coated?

Yes, your roof railing can be powder-coated to any RAL color.

How far apart should my parapet guardrail posts be?

This will be based on the manufacturer's design requirements. Commonly, posts will be no more than 8 feet on center. This can change based on the design of the railing, additional code requirements or the structure of the building.

When do I need a midrail?

A midrail for a parapet wall and railing must be installed between the top rail and the walking/working surface when there is no wall or parapet that is at least 21 inches high. 1910.29(b)(2)

What is the difference between inline and offset parapet guardrail?

This refers to the orientation of the horizontal rail and the posts. An inline railing using connectors that cause the posts and the rails to be in the same plane, giving a contiguous form. An offset railing will use connectors that cause the rails to attach to the side of the posts.

What safety codes does parapet railing comply with?

Our parapet guardrail complies with OSHA and IBC standards.
