Safety-barrier Systems for Working on the Roof

Fall Prevention Systems for Working on Roofs

When working on rooftops – and this includes maintenance work on green roof areas – personal safety equipment is to be used wherever risks cannot be avoided or suitably limited by safety measures like, for example, railing.

ZinCo provides various safety systems which do not penetrate the water proofing:

The fixing device Fallnet® SR provides a high degree of flexibility. The grid elements can be plugged together according to the individual form of the roof. The fixing point is placed in the center of the grid elements. It is also possible to retrofit Fallnet® SR into an existing green roof build-up.

The Fallnet® SR Rail system allows its users to attach themselves to a fixing point that can move horizontally. This so-called runner slides along the aluminium rails with its easy-running rollers and follows the user wherever they go and, thus, offers maximum comfort.

Railings can also be attached to flat roofs or rooftop terraces without having to penetrate the waterproofing. The superimposed load required can be generated through slabs in the bed of stone chippings or in the bulk solids (gravel, landscaping substrate, etc.).
