The system includes Barriers and handrails; these are deployed at the edges of the working area; these can be used to construct temporary walkways for safe access to a particular point on the roof; for example to repair a skylight or a chimney.
PREVENTING FALLS THROUGH FRAGILE ROOFS
For work on fragile sheet roofs such as general roof maintenance, repairing or cleaning skylights and gutters are some of the tasks that require quick, easy and most of all safe access to roofs. A lot of industrial roofs for example are fragile and require special attention. Although skylights can be seen in daylight from below, the hazard is that they are often brittle and are hidden from view by moss and grime on the roof. If no protection is deployed, then accidents can happen. The Oxford Safety trellis mats on strong support frames prevent falls through fragile sheet material and brittle skylights.
FRAGILE ROOF SYSTEM
The fragile roof system designed by Oxford Safety is a lightweight fall arrest temporary working platform. If work is required up on the roof, then several frames and mats can be deployed to cover the work area; this can then be disassembled and re-deployed for the next part of the roof. If the roof sheeting is strong, then falls through a skylights can be prevented by fitting steel spars across the purlins and locking trellis mats over them.
- Provides a lightweight fall arrest temporary working platform
- Constructed with strong tubular steel spars that span the roof purlins
- Designed for reactive works/full coverage works and edge protection
- Systems close-up easily to move and store and transport
