Freestanding, Fixed and Folding Guardrail Systems
Safely navigate the maze of plant systems and roof levels with the use of up-and-over step units. The sheer labyrinth posed to many maintenance workers on any roof is a big safety hazard, but it can be made easier and safer with a step unit.
Sometimes you aren't in need of a full vertical ladder if the height change in roof level is only minor, but still poses a hazard. You may need to access areas which are blocked by large obstacles that require maintenance engineers to climb over in order to gain access. That's where a step unit or ship's ladder would help create a safe working environment.

Pressford Safety Services, a safety and maintenance at height specialist, used 330Lm of our Rhinorail Freestanding System for their project at the Times Square Building on Queen Victoria Street, London.
The freestanding rail allows for full flexibility of design, as there is no need to drill into any structures. The quick and easy install meant the building had a suitable roof safety system set up in minimal time, with no noise disruption, thanks to the zero drill requirements of the railings.
Held fast by the 20kg counterweights, the continuous freestanding system covered the entire perimeter of the roof, using a mixture of 90 deg swept bends and variable elbows to suit.
The roof had a pre-installed cradle track which in some areas ran very close to the roof edge. This didn’t stop the system being installed continuously as the components that make up the freestanding kit can be easily manoeuvred into place.
The full perimeter system ensures that maintenance contractors accessing the roof can carry out surveys and repairs wherever necessary and know they are 100% protected from any falls or injury.
