W.S. Tech-Rail - Fall Protection Guardrail

W.S. Tech-Rail - Fall Protection Guardrail

Tech-Rail Guardrails are the answer to a cost effective, aesthetically pleasing, and easy to install non-penetrating guardrail system. They are an engineered system featuring galvanized steel trays, aluminum or galvanized rails, concrete patio stone, and optional toeboards. Tech-Rail guardrails meet/ exceed numerous codes and requirements including OSHA fall protection as well as Canadian Federal and Provincial requirements for permanent fall protection guardrail systems. They are a perfect solution for TSSA guardrail variances as the base design and sockets at edges allow for maximum space around the RTU, where space is often limited due to the proximity of the rooftop.
