ProtectCare has an extensive range of roof protection systems which have been designed to meet nearly all edge protection requirements.
Perfect for roof areas where regular access is required by personnel and for high level storage areas and walkways where constant access is required.
ProtectCare’s Systems include the following:
Freestanding Guardrails: Freestanding guardrails are installed and tested to the required loadings for modular roof protection systems, comprising of galvanised or painted pre-fabricated, fittings.
Suitable for installation to controlled roofs and other areas requiring periodic access, the system is designed around proven counterweight principles and is completely freestanding, therefore eliminating the need for costly roof penetration with more permanent systems.
The pre-fabricated components provide great flexibility on site enabling sections to be taken down, adjusted and re-erected. Suitable for installation on roofs with up to a 10º pitch ProtectCare’s Freestanding Guardrails can be installed on a wide range of flat roofs, of any shape, or size. Any areas that come into contact with the roof membrane will have a protective anti-slip rubber pad fitted between the base plate and roof.
Fixed Guardrails: ProtectCare’s fixed guardrails are a permanent solution for roofs, terraces, ramps and any change in height on walkways or buildings. These bespoke fixed guardrails are designed to suit each individual situation.
All our fixed guardrails meet BS EN 6399 Part 1 requirements and the requirements of the Building Regulations.
The fixing of this system can be to the existing roof or to a capping beams and all fixing will be designed to take the required loadings.
For durability all components on standard applications are galvanised to BS729.
