Yes. Kee Guard Roof Edge Fall Protection Railing System is a passive, collective fall protection system that is preferred by safety consultants. Lives have been lost in work-related falls resulting from workers not using harnesses properly. The Kee Guard system removes the potential of that risk. Harness systems require training and proper and regular use. The embedded anchor for a harness system could later leak and cause costly water damage. The worry of not having enough harnesses for rooftop workers is eliminated.
Building owners and employers are responsible for protecting their workers from any hazard encountered while on the job. In jobs requiring access to roofs for maintenance purposes, fall protection is usually required if workers will be exposed to a fall hazard.
Once properly installed, the Kee Guard system is considered a permanent installation. We recommend that any fall protection system be inspected on a routine basis for maximum liability protection for the building owner.
Free-standing Kee Guard systems can be used on any style of flat roofs with a slope up to 10 degrees. Kee Guard option designed for metal profile and standing seam roofs can be installed on pitched cladded roofs up to 45°.
With the use of the Kee Guard open style fitting (standard), two workers with minimal experience and simple hand tools can be installed up to twice as fast as most other systems. All materials should be delivered to the rooftop using a hoist, crane or other mechanical methods. No power tools are required.
Galvanised tube is used for vertical, horizontal and counterbalance supports and Kee Klamp fittings are all galvanised at our factory. The grub screws used to assemble the fittings and tubes together are all protected by Kee Koat® which is a special corrosion-resistant coating. We also offer a Kee Guard aluminium option, with fittings and tube made from aluminium. Kee Guard fall protection system is engineered using special fittings and is designed to withstand a full range of outdoor conditions.
The system employs a tested and proven counterbalance system, the Kee Guard system (Patents in effect) is a roof edge railing fall protection system that keeps the workers on the roof without endangering the roof membrane itself.
Each KeeGuard counterbalance weighs only 13.3 Kg and has an insulating rubber pad on the underside which is installed at the factory. Each counterbalance is spaced sufficiently to make the entire system deliver less weight per square foot than the average worker who might have to walk on the roof.
