There has unfortunately been a lot of press coverage recently following prosecutions relating to falls through fragile roofs.
Falls through fragile surfaces, particularly rooflights and fibre-cement roofs are one of biggest causes of serious injuries. Work at height is by nature high risk, but work on fragile surfaces is even more so which is why the HSE stipulates that effective precautions must be taken for all work on or near fragile surfaces, no matter how short the duration. Accidents can be avoided as long as suitable equipment is used and those carrying out the work are provided with adequate information, training and supervision.
Our Roof Walk open mesh walkway system has been designed specifically to allow work to be carried out safely on fragile and industrial roofs. The system allows access from the eaves to ridge, whilst spreading the load on support battens to provide the user with a safer working position. The system is lightweight and easily portable, making it ideal for use on fragile roofs.
Roof Walk is modular and features 1m, 2m, 3m & 4m sections which are quickly and easily linked together and an integral full length work positioning line. Single or double sided handrails, a roof hook and a valley stop end are all available as extras.
If you're planning to work on a fragile or industrial roof, call us on Tel: 01767 691812 to discuss how you can work safely using our Roof Walk system.
