Skylights

Skylight Fall Protection

Skylights are an increasing concern for rooftop safety. The vast majority of skylights are not man-rated and therefore would not support the required forces if a casualty was to fall onto and through a skylight. Skylights present a particular hazard while working on roofs, because they are below worker sight lines and therefore easily missed. Protecting your skylights with fall protection not only presents a physical barrier to fall but also demarcates where skylights are for workers.

We offer a couple of different portable fall protection systems including bolt-on skylight fall protection screens, as well as the SafetyRail 2000 portable fall protection system. Both portable fall protection systems are engineered to withstand the required OSHA skylight fall protection loadings to provide appropriate protection from falling through a skylight.

Our skylight protection guardrail screens offer a cost effective alternative to replacing unsafe skylights. The screens are engineered and designed to fit and withstand the fall loadings required. The skylight screens are highly visible and offer great fall protection from a common jobsite hazard.
