Kee Safety, a leading global supplier of safety railing systems, offers the KeeGuard®, a free-standing roof edge protection system to keep workers on the roof safe, without damaging the roof itself.
The UK’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends the use of effective rooftop safety equipment to reduce the many risks that can arise for people working at height.
Designed to keep workers safe when carrying out essential building or maintenance, KeeGuard® makes a major contribution in minimising the dangers faced when working at height.
Suitable for use on concrete, asphalt, PVC membrane and felt roof surfaces, the flexible system can be used on almost any flat roof up to 10 degrees.
The guardrail system is compatible with a range of rooftop configurations and is available for many different rooftypes, whether it is used where a restraining wall, such as a parapet is in place, or where the rooftop is completely open around the perimeter.
Offering the ultimate range, it can also be used for retrofitting to older buildings as well as for new constructions.
The system works on a proven counterweight system; the recycled PVC weights provide a highly visible and non-slip secure base that is free-standing and does not penetrate the roofmembrane, making it the ideal solution without damaging the existing structure.
It also has galvanised fittings and tubes collective protection arranged in a modular configuration, allowing for reconfiguration on-site if needed and ensures a safe work environment for anyone on the roof.
KeeGuard® is also the ultimate installer-friendly system. It involves no welding, threading or bolting on site and requires minimum components for the easiest installation.
Additionally, the system has a quick installation time for the horizontal rails thanks to its unique open style fitting.
KeeGuard® rooftop is fully tested and meets or exceeds current rooftop safety requirements. It is also available in a lightweight aluminium version.
