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. more info
