Skylight screens or cages cover the skylight with a wire mesh to protect them from accidental falls and lacerations. Skylight covers provide passive protection which means no training, engineering, certifications, or management is required to keep you and your team safe.
Safety When it Counts
Skylights are more than just a fall hazard. Breaking a skylight will expose a person to lacerations and create risk for anyone down below. Our screens are designed to keep a worker from coming into contact with the skylight in the first place.
Galvanized & Stainless Steel Option
Using galvanized carbon steel or 304 stainless steel, skylight screens are made to last. Galvanized and stainless steel hold up better against rain, snow, ice, and wind than other types of building material. The extra protection against the weather equates to longer protection against falls, even lasting the lifespan of your skylight safety cover.
All of our skylight screens are OSHA compliant, withstanding up to 200 lbs of force, stopping someone on the rooftop from falling through. We provide screen options that specifically meet the Cal-OSHA standard of 400 lbs. Cal-OSHA's load requirement can increase depending on the anticipated load from an employee, equipment, and materials. Cal-OSHA Title 8, Chapter 4, Article 19, 1623(3).
Skylight Screen Safety Solutions
Corrugated Screens: Model SCS
Corrugated metal roof screens attach to the metal rib/corrugated structure to mitigate the risk of fall hazards. The skylight screens attach using two support channels centered on the skylight for secure installation. The system can be customized to fit your unique skylight screen needs.
This metal screen rests on the roof surface and is engineered to transfer the impact of the fall load directly to the roof and not the skylight. The screen is designed to withstand a 400lb load to comply with Cal-OSHA standards.
.312 Diameter 304 Stainless Steel or Galvanized Carbon Steel Wire
The curb style screen attaches to the outer frame of a skylight. With its patented, non-penetrating compression installation, there’s no need for fasteners eliminating possible leaks caused by fastening the skylight screen to the frame.
