The KeeGuard® system, from Kee Safety, providers of fall protection solutions, is a free-standing roof edge protection system that can keep workers safe, without endangering the roof membrane itself.
As falls from height are one of the biggest cause of death and serious injury in the workplace, Kee believe all rooftops should be guarded by a fall protection system, to guarantee safe and efficient maintenance programmes.
Kee Safety’s aim with its products is to eliminate many of the unnecessary risks taken by people working at heights, whilst also complying fully with relevant regulations.
The KeeGuard® system is compatible with a range of roof membranes, including concrete, asphalt, PVC membrane, metal and felt.
It does not penetrate the roof surface and can be used on flat roofs up to 10° slope.
KeeGuard® utilises a proven counterweight system, combining a non-slip secure base with galvanised fittings and tube arranged in a modular configuration.
Fully modular and versatile enough to adapt to most roof edge profiles and level changes, sections can be easily taken down and re-erected as necessary.
The complete KeeGuard® system complies fully with all legislative requirements and even allows for an integral kickboard fixing, further saving on time and cost on site.
The recycled PVC base weights used with KeeGuard® bring a number of advantages, particularly making installation faster and simpler, saving time and money.
Made from 100% recycled material, it provides an environmentally sound alternative to conventional weights.
Kee Safety Singapore Division provided Asia’s largest Real Estate company, Capital Land, with the KeeGuard® system for installation on the Raffles City Tower, one of the tallest hotels in Singapore.
When main contractor Gennal Industries carried out the changing of the water tank in the building, they had to build a temporary one on the helipad on the top of the building; 73 stories up.
Before work started, the contractor sought a temporary guardrail system that would surround the perimeter of the tank.
Gennal Industries contacted Kee Safety’s approved fall protection installer, who commenced a full site survey and recommended the installation of KeeGuard®.
