A majority of maintenance works on roofs require a purely functional and cost effective solution for guardrails with the aesthetics of the product being secondary to cost. Eurosafe Solutions can provide two options for this type of application.
Tube and fitting type handrail systems in both a fixed and freestanding format offer a versatile, economical, and durable method of building guardrail systems in a variety of applications.
The cast fittings are available to suit a vast range of angles, joint details, bends that allow lengths of steel tube to be built up into a fixed permanent barrier on site without the need for expensive and time-consuming welding and elimination of the fire risks associated with this task.
The fixed option is available in different tube sizes, from 17.5mm to 60.3mm. The support stanchions that hold the fittings can be fixed back to the structure of the building using either a standard palmbase or we can design and fabricate a bespoke support bracket to suit the specific application.
The Flatbase guardrail system is completely freestanding which means there is no need to penetrate the roof membrane. A unique low profile base design means there are no unsightly counterbalance weights whilst a high-performance rubber mat placed between the base and the roof surface ensures no adverse effect on new or existing roof guarantees. For particularly delicate roof surfaces, a specially designed spreader plate gives added protection and peace of mind.
The system is reversible for totally unobstructed access which is ideal for fire escape routes, a safe passage around hazardous plant and machinery or roof lights. It comes with a fully galvanised (BS729) finish or can be powder coated in a range of colours to suit all our Clients’ requirements.
We are approved installers of the MSA Latchways VersiRail freestanding or fixed Aluminium guardrail system offering collective fall protection.
This guardrail offers a number of advantages over steel systems not only in its appearance and ease of installation, but also the quality of its engineering. Whilst its design is primarily a practical solution to providing collective fall protection, its attractiveness and quality finish can also be viewed as an architectural feature on a building.
The system is offered in various style options (curved, inclined, straight and folding), four fixing options (Slab mounting plate, wall mounting plate, Z-Type mounting plate, parapet mounting plate) as well as freestanding and three finishes (natural, polished or powder coated to a RAL colour) ensuring you can tailor the system to match your requirements and surroundings. Manufacturing the product in aluminium reduces the weight of the product by around 30% compared to steel systems for when loading’s to the roof are an issue whilst still providing a high-quality material to ensure its performance and its durability.
VersiRail is fully tested to EN 13374 at 2.5 m spacing’s for the freestanding system and to EN 14122-3 at 1.5 m spacing’s for the fixed system and can be adapted to suit all maintenance requirements on your project.
