Fragile Roof System

With an average of 61 000 non-fatal construction workplace injuries each year, choosing the proper safety equipment to buy or hire is vital for reducing falls from a height.

Preventing falls from height

Facility management is an industry that looks after multiple areas to ensure functionality, comfort, safety and efficiency of the built environment by integrating people, place, process and technology. Falls are an ever-present danger in this industry. Working on high platforms, cherry pickers, ladders or any other raised area poses personnel risk. Running a safe operation is possible if the right equipment is provided to employees.

The TreadLite System

The TreadLite system is a lightweight, fall arrest temporary working platform. Formulated with aluminium, the system is designed to be used when performing reactive work on fragile roofs. The system is easy to use and very adaptable, with the different components of the system being able to be used independently for many different fragile roof issues.

If the roof sheeting is strong, then falls through skylights can be prevented by fitting steel spars across the purlins and locking trellis mats over them. 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.
