Permanent Solution for Roof Edge Safety
Safety recommendations for the protection of maintenance personnel in countries all over the world are moving to a “hierarchy of safety” where collective fall prevention solutions, as provided by SMC Group installed systems, are preferred over singular fall protection alternatives such as harnesses and wire systems. Collective fall prevention and fall protection can be achieved with the use of non-penetrating roof rail systems. Lifeline, fall restraint, and fall arrest systems require individual equipment and specialized training. A non-penetrating roof rail system acts as a passive barrier and protects all personnel, even those who may access the rooftop infrequently. A Roof Edge Railing System works along side your existing personal fall protection devices.
