KeeGuard Foldshield is an ideal collective protection system where building aesthetics are important. Being a collapsible roof guardrail, Foldshield provides a safe method of roof access while not interfering with the roofline appearance.
Designed for flat roofs and pitches up to 10°, the system is a perfect solution for concrete, asphalt, felt or PVC sheet covered roofs. Similar to the KeeGuard and KeeGuard Premium guardrails, Foldshield is freestanding on the roof, meaning that the integrity of the roof surface is not compromised.
How it Works
The guardrail legs are hinged at the bottom, allowing them to fold down on top of the weighted base, fully out of sight. When lifted back into position, a simple locking pin is inserted into the base fitting, locking the guardrail in place.
All components are supplied with a galvanised finish, meeting the BS EN 1461 standard. Foldshield guardrail is constructed using the Kee Klamp method of connection. All base feet are connected using 100% recycled PVC counter weights, creating a strong and stable system.
KeeGuard Foldshield has been externally assessed and tested to EN 14122-3.
The system can be lifted and lowered in sections, while the worker is connected to an anchor point using the appropriate PPE. Once all sections are in place, the worker is free to travel freely throughout the roof surface.
