By their nature, corrugated metal roofs pose a large problem when it comes to roof safety. Their uneven surface make them a natural trip hazard, while also extremely slippy, especially when wet.
Unfortunately, these roofs often need to be accessed for maintenance and so a very real danger exists.
Collective Edge Protection for Metal Profile Roofs
Collective edge protection in the form of a guardrail system is the most effective form of protection on metal profile roofs. Weighted or free-standing guardrail mightn’t be an option due to the roof profile. In this case, Keeguard Topfix provides an ideal safety solution.
Fixing the Guardrail to a Standing Seam Roof
Topfix incorporates a specially designed base plate. This can be securely attached to a wide range of standing seam and metal roofs up to 45°. The plate can be attached to standing seam roofs while not penetrating the roof surface. Metal profile roofs are fixed using rivets which provide minimal penetration.
