Railing for Your Rooftop

A Few Basic Things You Need to Consider
When Choosing a Roof Railing System

Is the Guardrail OSHA Compliant?

OSHA's requirements for guardrail can be found on the OSHA website. We have a quick reference guide below for keeping your guardrail compliant.

You must ensure that:
  • The top rail is 42" tall from the walking surface.
  • The middle rail is half way between the top rail and the walking surface.
  • The rail is able to withstand a 200 lb. force in a downward or outward direction.

* It is important to note that you should always follow the manufacturer's installation instructions.

Do You Need a Permanent or Temporary Guardrail?

Permanent and temporary guardrails have their place on your rooftop. It is important to select the appropriate guard railing for your scenario.

Here are a few questions for you to consider:
  • How often are people accessing your roof?
  • Do you have concerns about longevity?
  • What kind of work is being done?
