Roof Hatch Protection

Roof Hatch Guardrails

When it comes to protecting roof hatches we have a couple of systems available to protect the user and also help with access and egress through the hatch. Hatch protection is extremely important for workers on roofs, as hatches are often missed below the sight line. Make sure you are protecting your works by providing a perimeter railing and gate around all rooftop hatch openings.

Our Hatch Guard system is a bolt-on guardrail system that is non-penetrating and safely protects to open roof hatch. The Hatch Guard hatch rail meets and exceeds the applicable roof hatch guard rail codes. It is now available also with an optional hoist to lift materials safely through the hatch. A pdf copy of the brochure page is available, click here to download.

We also offer the SafetyRail 2000 Hatch Protection non-penetrating rooftop guardrail system that can be configured in many different layouts and sizes to allow for complete roof hatch protection. Using the standard framework of the SafetyRail 2000 system, we configure the guardrails to your hatch and provide swing door for access and egress.

For rooftop hatches that have existing guardrailing already in place or if guardrailing around the hatch isn’t required or a priority then we also offer the HatchGrip system to assist users in access and egress through the hatch.
