  • Composite panel.
  • Secret fix roofing.
  • Built-up on site metal roofing.
  • Single ply membrane. 

Description

The Ascent™ aluminium walkway for flat roofs is a standardized modular system, allowing the design of anti-slip compliant walkways for access on all major roofing systems. A guardrail system can be added to either one or both sides of walkway. The Ascent walkway creates a level anti-slip walking surface which both protects the roof from foot traffic, and where a guardrail is fitted, it provides collective protection to workers.

  • Anti-slip and level free draining walking surface.
  • Can be supplied with or without handrails.
  • Creates safe access.
  • Supported off the roof on non-penetrative recycled rubber support feet.
  • Can be added to one or both sides of a walkway.
  • UKCA/ CE Manufactured.
