Guardrail systems for fall protection are an asset in the construction industry. When used alongside personal fall protection systems, they allow employees to work at height with minimal risk of falling.
Among guardrail systems, portable rail systems are some of the most popular. There are three reasons why:
They are non-penetrating:A key benefit of using non-penetrating guardrail systems for fall protection is that they keep the roof intact. You can continue with your work without drilling into the roof thus preserving the integrity as well as the warranty of the roof.
Easy to install:Another advantage of using portable guardrail systems for fall protection is that they are easy to set up. If you have two installers working together, they can set up hundreds of feet of portable guardrail within two or three hours. Quick installation means that the crew can then get right to work, enhancing your chances of finishing the project on time.
You don’t need tools for the set-up process:You’ll enjoy setting up a portable guardrail system because you don’t need any tools for the installation process. The pieces seamlessly connect, snap, then secure with a locking mechanism. This further increases speed of installation which can be critical when working on a time-sensitive project.
There are two main types of portable guardrail systems for fall protection; non-penetrating and mobile. Non-penetrating systems are not designed to be temporary but at the same time don’t physically attach to the structure, thus can be moved or relocated with ease. Mobile guardrail systems, meanwhile, are both non-penetrating and temporary in that they are not designed to be used in a location on a permanent basis.
