Guardrail

Does your roof looks like this? Don’t worry – there is a solution for all these fall hazard.

 

Whether it’s because of the year of construction or the multiple design constraints, a building is often designed with risky situations. Here’s why Delta Prevention offers a solution to fix every risky situation that can end up on your roof.

 

Situation #1 : Roof access ladder

Roof access ladders are among the most common components on our roofs and unfortunately, they are often poorly protected. Their use instantly places the visitor in the 6’6″ (2 m) risk zone when going up or down.

 

Roof access ladders are among the most common components on our roofs and unfortunately, they are often poorly protected. Their use instantly places the visitor in the 6’6″ (2 m) risk zone when going up or down.

The solution: A set of guardrails for access ladders. Easy setup and economical, it creates a protection of 12’6″ on each side of the ladder which makes the circulation around it much safer.

 

Situation #2: HVAC unit

Perhaps the most common reason for visiting your roof, the maintenance, installation or verification of your air conditioning or heating systems represents a considerable risk of accident. The regular maintenance of these units, often positioned too close to the edge, becomes a banal visit where safety takes second place.

Solution: A freestanding VSS Classic guardrail section configured to cover approximately 10′ more on each side of the unit. In addition to protecting against the risk of falls, the freestanding guardrail offers more freedom of movement than a harness and a lanyard.

 

Situation #3: Passageway from one section to another

When moving on the roof, it is not uncommon for a passage or a corridor to another section to place us directly in the 6’6″ (2m) risk zone. The worst is that these areas are often heavily used passages and there are sometimes even a door or an other access to the roof.

Solution: The VSS Classic or the VSS Compact guardrails can completely eliminate the risk of falling and make the traffic safer in these passages. Depending on the space available, any of these configurations complies with the current safety standards and will ensure the legality of your installations.
