Description

Our Steel Non-penetrating Guardrails enables fall protection without penetrating the floor and roof surface. When properly applied the counterweight system provides an OSHA compliant fall prevention system (1910.23(c)) for the roof edge, skylight, hatch, loading dock, mezzanine, elevated platform and construction site safety.

The Steel Guardrail System is a freestanding, non-penetrating railing system used for fall protection. It is designed to be a Motion Stopping Safety System thereby acting as a barrier between the worker and a fall hazard. This system will comply with all Federal OSHA standards found in 1926.500-503 and 1910.23.

WARNING: As per CAL-OSHA, base plates have to be placed not more than a recommended distance of 8 feet (96 inches or 2.44 meters) apart or less. Please choose rails not more than 8ft. in length if you are installing this system in California. View on CA.gov

NOTE: Toeboards are not included with this system. Please purchase toeboards separately by visiting the ‘Accessories’ tab on this product page.


FEATURES & BENEFITS

EASE TO INSTALL
You do not need to penetrate floors to install the Non-penetrating Steel Guardrail System. Thus, providing you considerable savings in time and installation costs.

MOBILITY
Now you can have fall protection when and where you want it. The Non-penetrating Steel Guardrail System is portable and can be dismantled/assembled as the need arises. For even greater convenience we can also provide the handy transporter.

FLEXIBILITY
The Non-penetrating Steel Guardrail Systems are versatile and can easily be configured to your specific needs. The base can accommodate up to four rails and toe plates if needed.

OVERHEAD PROTECTION
In elevated situations where there is a danger of kicking something onto someone below, OSHA requires the use of 2 x 4 sized toe board between the bases. The bases of the Non-penetrating Steel Guardrails can be retrofitted with our custom toe-boards.

SLIP RESISTANT
The base plates can be equipped with non-slip pads. The optional pads keep the base from slipping on smooth surfaces like concrete or metal. Pads also help cushion base on sensitive materials like rubber roofing.

CORROSION RESISTANT
This system comes standard with a powder coated paint finish, to provide resistant against weather elements. As an option, galvanized finish is also available.

CUSTOM ORDERS
We can provide custom engineering and fabrication for your special needs if our standard the Non-penetrating Steel Guardrail does not meet your needs.

PEACE OF MIND
We use pins with positive locks on our guardrail bases instead of setscrews. This approach allows you to visually inspect the system after assembly and be confident that it is ready for use.

!! CAUTION !! This is a fall protection system. The system must be used in strict conformance with the manufacturer's instructions. Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death. You can download the system manuals from the 'Downloads' tab. You are also encouraged to contact us in case of any questions. more info

The finishing kit shown below, will provide you with the outriggers to close these open ends. For a single run system with two open ends, you will need (1) finishing kit. Finishing kits are not required for closed loop systems such as squares or rectangles, see illustration below →
