Simple solutions for safe maintenance
Posted 04 Sep 2018
Planned maintenance of both plant and equipment, as well as roof repairs, can present unique risks and dangers to those carrying out work at height.
This maintenance can often lead to serious injury or worse if correct procedures are not put in place, and the correct equipment is not used. Steadfast provides several systems and solutions which make maintaining your building safe and efficient.
The Kee Walk® rooftop walkway system is ideal for not only protecting workers at height, but preventing slips and trips by providing a safe level, anti-slip walking surface on the roof. Kee Walk® can also be used to direct people away from hazards while protecting the roof surface from unnecessary foot traffic and potential damage.
If your property is one where regular access to the roof is a necessity, collective protection in the form of guardrails such as KeeGuard® and KeeGuard® Topfix can offer a cost effective solution. These systems can be used on their own to provide permanent edge protection or combined with Kee Walk® for a complete solution.
The KeeGuard® range of collective protection includes standard vertical, raked, radiused and folding systems, and is designed to provide permanent edge protection for areas where regular access is required for maintenance and inspection purposes. Each system is freestanding so does not require fixing into the roof’s structure or membrane and is suitable for installation on virtually any configuration of flat roofs up to a 10° slope.
Mobile Man Anchor
If irregular access is required to your roof for short term maintenance work, our Mobile Man Anchor can help provide a safe solution for low frequency operations, overcoming the cost of a full perimeter guardrail system.
The portable deadweight system is compact and easy to assemble, and weights are supplied with suction cup rubber boots which protect the roof and increase friction resistance, enabling the anchor to be used on all roof membranes, even in wet weather.
Steadfast is able to provide a complete solution for specific requirements. For further information or to discuss a particular work at height solution please contact us.
