Aluminum Non-penetrating Guardrails

CAI Safety’s Aluminum Non-penetrating Guardrail prevents those who work at height from reaching an area where fall hazards exist. Installing a guardrail system means eliminating the risk of falling for anyone who sets foot on a roof. When installed around the entire roof surface, the system can be used by an unlimited amount of users who do not need any know-how on how to use the system as the entire roof has become a safe zone.

Description

CAI Safety’s Aluminum Non-penetrating Guardrail prevents those who work at height from reaching an area where fall hazards exist. Installing a guardrail system means eliminating the risk of falling for anyone who sets foot on a roof. When installed around the entire roof surface, the system can be used by an unlimited amount of users who do not need any know-how on how to use the system as the entire roof has become a safe zone. The guardrail system also provides an attractive architectural design for your roof leading edges.

This guardrail system is easy to install, resulting in a short installation time. This enables the installer to save on the installation costs. Furthermore, the system does not damage the roof surface as there is no need to drill or fixate components onto the roof. The system can be folded down to hide it when not in use.

Fall Protection Challenge

When you need a fall protection system to protect roof leading edges and openings a fixed guardrail system may not be an option. Fixed systems require roof penetrations that are expensive to waterproof and do increase the possibility of future roof leaks.

Fall Protection Solution

A non-penetrating aluminum guardrail system will allow you to implement a passive fall protection system without roof penetrations. In addition the system can be cut and fitted onsite without the use of special tools for a custom finish.

CORRECT USAGE (!! IMPORTANT !!)

  • Uprights and Base Plates must be placed at a maximum required distance of 8 feet (96 inches or 2.43 meters) or less (see picture below)
  • Two base plates must be used with each upright/outrigger to comply with OSHA regulations (see picture below)
  • Aluminum Non-penetrating Guardrails
  • The Aluminum Guardrail system can be used on roof slopes up to a 10° pitch.
  • Do not use the guardrail system above the wind force of 6 Beaufort (13,8 m/s). This condition needs to be checked with an anemometer before use. If your conditions fall outside the CAI designated parameters, contact us prior to proceeding.
  • Finish End Brackets and Wall Mount Ends are included based on the number of Finish Ends you choose for your system. Please include the number of finish ends in your selection.
  • The Aluminum Guardrail Toeboard (8 ft. or 2.43 m) is supplied ready to fit and slides into each upright post, while bolting them to each upright.

If you are trying to decide between a Horizontal Lifeline System on your roof versus a Non-penetrating Guardrail System, consider the following:

Non-penetrating Guardrails
Aluminum Non-penetrating Guardrails
Horizontal Lifeline & Anchors
CAI Safety Roof Horizontal Lifeline Anchor
Engineering must verify that your building structure can support the fall arrest loads. NOT REQUIRED REQUIRED
Roof penetration and sealing to accommodate anchors. NOT REQUIRED REQUIRED
Installation by a certified installer of horizontal lifelines. NOT REQUIRED REQUIRED
Training all employees who use the horizontal lifeline system. NOT REQUIRED REQUIRED
Annual inspections required on all fall arrest systems (semi-annual if in California). NOT REQUIRED REQUIRED


Non-penetrating guardrail systems have many advantages over horizontal lifelines. There are exceptions and we will be glad to discuss them with you.
