Versatile, Non-Penetrating, OSHA Compliant Skylight Covers

Our skylight screens provide cost effective and easy-to-install protection from falls through skylights. Skylight screens that are designed and installed by Flexible Lifeline Systems are OSHA compliant and provide protection against legal liability.

Our screen-style skylight covers do not penetrate the roof or skylight curb membranes, thereby maintaining the integrity of the roof warranty. Installation of FLS skylight screens eliminate the inherent danger that exists of falls through unguarded skylights.

Complete Solution for Every Roof Opening

FLS Skylight Screens are available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and material to fit almost any roof opening as defined by OSHA, including smoke vents. Optional galvanized or stainless steel screens are durable and weather-resistant for every installation type, including curb style skylight installations, standing seam metal roof skylights, and for rib/corrugated metal roof skylights.

Simple, Secure, Non-Perforating Installation

Installation of FLS Skylight Screens is compliant with OSHA regulations which require fall protection around roof openings that must not negatively affect the strength and soundness of the skylight. Our patented installation system will not affect the integrity of the roof hole, whether one of our standard sizes or custom fitting.

OSHA Skylight Requirements

A fall through an unguarded skylight usually results in death or serious injury. This is why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that employers provide fall protection as stated in the regulations listed below. FLS Skylight Screens exceed the OSHA requirement for weight bearing of 200 pounds to any one area of the screen.


Each employee is protected from falling through any hole (including skylights) that is 4 feet (1.2 m) or more above a lower level by one or more of the following:


Guardrail systems;


Travel restraint systems; or


Personal fall arrest systems.

OSHA Regulation 29 CFR 1926.501 Duty to Have Fall Protection

(a) (2) The employer shall determine if the walking/working surfaces on which the employees are to work have the strength and structural integrity to support employees safely. Employees shall be allowed to work on those surfaces only when the surfaces have the requisite strength and structural integrity.

(b) (4) Holes (i) Each employee on walking/working surface shall be protected from falling through holes (including skylights) more than 6 feet above lower levels by personal fall arrest systems, covers, or guardrail systems erected around such holes. (ii) Each employee on walking/working surface shall be protected from tripping or stepping in the holes (including skylights) by covers.
