Application

Safety walkway for standing seam roofs.

Description

Aluminium walkway for standing seam roofing systems, with a standardized modular system, allowing the design of anti-slip compliant walkways for access on all major manufacturers' and their metal profile roofing systems. The range of standard components fixes to roofs of differing slope and seam widths.

The walkway can be configured with a handrail to withstand a loading of either 0.36 kN (general duty) or 0.74 kN (heavy duty) and can be supplied with an optional toeboard if required. The system is unique in that it can achieve these loadings without the need for additional bracing, allowing the walkway to be placed against the area to be accessed. The walkway can be levelled when required to traverse across the pitch of a roof and stepped when ascending a roof slope. CE marked and tested to BS EN 516:2006 Class 1 Type C.

Applications:

Safety walkway for standing seam roofs.

Approvals:
