Collective Guardrail Systems
Collective protection is a term given to guardrail and handrail type edge protection systems.
A collective guardrail system offers better compliance to the Hierarchy of Controls within the Working At Height Regulations.
They are particularly suited where frequent access or maintenance is required and avoid the need for personal fall protection equipment and training.
Guardrails can also be used for fall prevention around sky lights, roof lights and other fragile or hazardous elements on the roof.
Our guardrail systems can be fixed to any roof or parapet type but are more commonly supplied as counterbalanced freestanding configuration, avoiding the need for any penetrations to the roof.
Our installation teams are trained and competent to install and certify all guardrail systems to meet BS EN 13374:2013 and BS EN 150 14122-3; 2001 standards.
