Modular, Safe & Compliant Rooftop Walking Surface

The FlexWalk with Guardrail system from Flexible Lifeline Systems is a fall protection solution consisting of walkway and guardrail which can be installed quickly and easily on a wide variety of roofs.

It is a safe, compliant and modular approach to guardrail protection and eliminates the fall hazard typically present when workers are exposed to an unprotected edge while accessing or egressing a roof top.

Optimized Rooftop Safety for Workers

A walkway with guardrail is the most preferred fall protection system as dictated in the hierarchy of control measures; it provides the highest level of collective fall prevention for roof access and work at height.

FlexWalk walkways provide a defined and secure route across the roof keeping users safe from the associated hazards when working at height without the need to fall arrest personal protection equipment (PPE) or harnesses.

FlexWalk walkways can be combined with our range of platforms, guardrail and steps to form a complete safe access solution.

How FlexWalk with Guardrail Works

When it comes to the guardrail installation, our solution is equally suited to both retrofit on existing installed FlexWalk or as a new build.

The safety guardrail is built from 48.3mm tube with galvanized corrosion resistant fittings and safety handrails and is a none-penetrative solution that can be installed on one or both sides of FlexWalk very easily. Aluminium guardrail is also available using modular fittings.

FlexWalk with Guardrail systems feature modular fittings which makes for simple and fast on-site installation.

FlexWalk with guardrail is suited to a variety of different roof surfaces, slopes, steps, traverses and pitches up to 35°.
