KeeGuard® Railing Components
Not All Railing Systems are Created Equal
Galvanized Pipe and Fittings That Last Decades
Most railing pipe fail at the weld points, where the material is thin and corrosion resistance is minimal. KeeGuard uses Gator tubing, which is rolled and seam welded pipe. The pipe is hot-dipped galvanized inside and out plus has an anti-corrosive coating on the outside of the pipe, this gives you greater longevity on your roof. Gator Tube uses a triple layer Flo-Coat protective barrier that is tested to last over three times longer than standard galvanized pipe in ASTM-B-117 standard salt spray tests.
The fittings are made of cast iron and are also hot-dipped galvanized on the inside and out. There are several hundred fittings available to allow KeeGuard to navigate your rooftop obstacles.
No matter where KeeGuard is installed it's galvanized components will ensure your guardrail lasts and secures your rooftop for decades.
Pre-assembled Uprights Made Simple
KeeGuard's uprights come pre-assembled with the saddles set at 42 in. and at 21 in. to match OSHA code requirements for the top and midrail. However, the saddles still have the flexibility to be adjusted for infill panels, if needed.
The boot on the upright connects the post and counterbalance together. The boot has a rubber base to protect your roof from metal edges as well as to allow water to flow underneath it. A metal plate is also included on the boot to allow for toeboard to be installed as required.
Non-Penetrating Bases Save Your Roof
KeeGuard has two non-penetrating base options made from recycled PVC, a counterbalance base and post weight base. Thanks to the modular design of KeeGuard, both base types can be used together when necessary. The system has a lot of flexibility when it comes to the design of it.
Counterbalance weights help spread the weight across more of the roof surface and allow for longer spans between posts. The weight itself is only 30 lb. The bottom of the weight has dimples and grooves to allow water to flow underneath it.
Post weight bases are ideal for railing systems that are close to the roof edge and space between the base and obstacles like RTUs is limited.
No matter how complex your rooftop is, KeeGuard can be configured to meet your needs.
Additional Products for Comprehensive Protection
If your workers access the roof via a fixed ladder, attaching a self-closing safety gate to KeeGuard will create a safe walking path away from the ladder.
KeeGuard pairs well with Kee Hatch, a simple hatch railing system that gives your workers 360 degree protection when entering or exiting a roof hatch.
KeeGuard seamlessly integrates with many fall protection systems providing your workers with the fall protection they need to do their jobs efficiently and safely.
