Free Standing Skylight Fall Safety Solution
The FLS Skylight Guardrail is a freestanding fall-protection solution for use around skylights, roof lights, and dome lights. Its unique modular design enables application as a permanent solution, or it can be moved and re-erected as needed.
The guardrail system allows maintenance crews and contractors to safely work on rooftops without the risk of stepping onto an unguarded skylight. The FLS Skylight Guardrail metal components are coated with a protective layer of zinc, helping to keep the system effectively maintenance free and resilient over time. The system also integrates seamlessly with our other FlexGuard fall-protection systems.
Fall Protection that Meets OSHA Standards
The FLS Skylight Guardrail system is designed with permanency in mind. The heavy rubber base, galvanized components, and well-fitted pipes, joints and clamps support loads of up to 300 N/m. The system meets all rooftop standards set by safety legislation and EN 14122 pt3. The system can be implemented on any roof surfaces, with a maximum pitch of 3°. The FLS Skylight Guardrail system has been independently tested to OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.29.
Expertise In Skylight Safety
Maximizing the fall safety provided by skylight guardrails requires proper installation and the understanding of associated fall hazards. As your turnkey fall protection provider, FLS provides one manager with total accountability who will guide your project every step of the way.
The FLS Skylight Guardrail system’s standard components allow for quick assembly without compromising stability or durability. Vertical posts, hand and knee rails, 90° corner fittings, recycled PVC feet with adjustable clamping rings, along with steel tubing rails that can be cut to size comprise the entire solution, minus assembly. There is no need to puncture the roof surface during installation as the clamping rings fasten securely to the base of the roof opening (up to 8’ x 8’ in area), allowing for maximum mobility and utility.
