Application

Suitable for inclined roofs, providing anti-slip compliant steps for access on all major roofing systems.

Description

A standardized modular system for inclined roofs, allowing the design of anti-slip compliant steps for access on all major roofing systems. The walkway creates a safe access/ egress route both up and down a roof slope while the steps create a level, free-draining surface which both protects the roof from foot traffic and, where fitted with guardrail, provides collective protection to the worker. The steps are supported off the roof on proprietary fixing brackets which secure to the majority of roof coverings with a non-penetrative fixing.


Features and benefits:

  • Anti-slip.
  • Optional guardrail added to one or both sides of the walkway.
  • Configured with a handrail to withstand a loading of either 0.36 kN (general duty) or 0.74 kN (heavy duty).
  • Can be supplied with an optional toe-board if required and a range of fixing kits to suit different roof profiles.
  • UKCA/CE Manufactured.
  • Designed and tested in accordance with BS EN 516:2006 Class 1 Type C, in accordance with BS EN ISO 14122-3:2016 where a handrail is fitted, in accordance with BS 4592-0:2006+A1:2012 for loadbearing and BS 7976-2:2002+A1:2013 for anti-slip. 


Components:

  • Tread.
  • Riser plate.
  • Bond adhesive pads.
  • BULB-TITE® rivets.
  • Self-drilling screws.
