Advantages of Skylight
Safety Screens

Passive Protection
Passive Protection
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.
Cal-OSHA Compliant
Cal-OSHA Compliant
Our Safety screens are available in .312 diameter 304 stainless steel or galvanized carbon steel rigid wire to meet Cal-OSHA requirements 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).
Galvanized & Stainless Steel Options
Galvanized & Stainless Steel Options
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 screen.
Safety When it Counts
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.

Skylight Screens FAQs

How much weight does OSHA require for skylight screens?

Skylight screens are required to withstand twice the anticipated load according to OSHA 1910.29(e).

What are skylight screens made of?

Skylight screens are made using rigid galvanized carbon steel or 304 stainless steel and are built to withstand rain, snow, ice, wind, and heat better than other types of building materials. The screens come in a variety of sized wire including .187, .250, and .312 inch diameters.

What type of skylights and roof surfaces will skylight screens work on?

Skylight screens can be designed to work with many forms of skylights and on many roof surfaces including curb, standing seam, and corrugated. There are standard sizes available as well as custom engineered options for oversized skylights.

Do skylight screens penetrate the roof surface?

There are multiple types of skylight screens that can offer penetrating and non-penetrating installation processes. Some latch onto the outer edge of the skylight and tighten without penetrating the frame while others can be bolted in the roof or frame.

Are skylight screens permanent? How long do skylight screens last?

Skylight screens are designed as a permanent system with durable galvanized carbon steel or stainless steel that last decades. They are designed to protect workers and stop large objects from impacting the skylight even after years of harsh weather. They’re easy to adjust or remove down the line should maintenance be required or roof layouts change.

How long does it take to install a skylight screen?

Skylight screens are easy to install in a matter of minutes. Depending on the type of skylight, any installation of a skylight screen can take between 15 and 30 minutes by 2 workers without any special training or tools. Or, you can have them professionally installed by a third-party contractor.

What does Cal-OSHA require for skylight screens?

Cal-OSHA requires skylight screens to withstand a force of 400 lbs, which is twice the weight that is required by OSHA. Cal-OSHA also states that they should be rigid in construction so that the force of the impact or load will not cause the screen to buckle under pressure and break the glass below them.
