Easi-Dec has developed a Low Level Roof Edge Protection system designed to provide contractors with a cost and time effective alternative to scaffolding.
The company says the dedicated low-level roof access platform system combined with edge protection allows contractors to work on the roof and sides of a building without moving the system. It provides continuous protection during repairs or inspection to specific areas of a flat roof, or whilst re-roofing work is being undertaken.
This system incorporates a 2m wide access platform on adjustable legs with winged gates to provide wider roof edge protection to EN13374 Class C and safe access up onto the roof. To ensure safety while on top of the roof, it also includes body-guard systems with extensions to adapt to different roof lengths whilst still complying with EN13374 Class A and a sturdier and safer demarcation handrail rather than just tape or chains.
The Low Level Roof Edge Protection system can accommodate different width roofs and can be installed as a straight run to provide edge protection for specific roof areas, or connected at right angles around the perimeter of the roof for complete collective protection.
The company says that due to its modular design and make up of lightweight aluminium, the system can be easily transported and fitted into place where it is then built on the ground, raised to the required working height and fixed to the building in less than 15 minutes.
Soni Sheimar, general manager at Easi-Dec said: “Contractors understand the importance of retaining profits and remaining safe, particularly on low level flat roofing projects, which require contractors to access the rooftop quickly to complete short duration works, such as repairing leaks or replacing a section of a roof. It is for this reason that we developed the Easi-Dec Low Level Roof Edge Protection system.”
