Guardrail Edge Protection

Edge Protection Scaffold Hire

A roof edge protection system is a necessity whenever work is carried out on a roof structure or roof surface, or temporary access to a roof is needed. Because roof work involves movement elevated from ground level, the risk of falls are greater and can cause critical or even fatal injuries.

An edge protection system must be enabled at any unprotected edge of a work platform or scaffold platform, to prevent roof workers and materials from falling of the edge and provide safe access to ground workers. It’s an essential height safety product to protect falls from roofs.

CanDo offers a comprehensive range of temporary edge protection systems. Our roof safety systems cater for various types of roof construction with a large range of mounting brackets.
