Installing an OSHA-compliant guard on rooftop skylights doesn’t get any easier than this. The Non-penetrating Skylight Cover Guard is simply placed over the top of the skylight. Four rubber-tipped compression bolts secure the guard against the curb of the skylight to hold it in place. There are no mechanical penetrations in the skylight or roof to hold this skylight guard in place. In 10 minutes, you can have this system fully installed.
Don’t be fooled by lighter-duty skylight guards on the market. OSHA states that the guard must not deflect sufficiently to touch the lens of the skylight should someone fall on the guard. Our robust construction insures that the guard will not contact the skylight lens under a load condition. In fact, this skylight guard not only meets federal OSHA guidelines — which require a 200 lb. load capacity — but also complies with Cal OSHA guidelines, which require guards capable of supporting a 400 lb. load.
