Guardrail Safety Features

The FlexGuard system not only meets but exceeds current safety requirements for freestanding guardrails for rooftops and other applications.

Fall Protection Where it’s Needed

In addition to its utility as an OSHA compliant roof edge guardrail, FlexGuard can be used for walkway demarcation, open shaft and stairwells, fall protection around roof top equipment and other safety applications. FlexGuard pre-fabricated design, utilizing the lightweight modular counterweights, allows maximum versatility on any site.

FlexGuard’s adjustable uprights allow up to 11 degree raking from vertical movement meaning the system can be implemented on sloped surfaces such as uneven rooftops or ramps. The system components are adaptable to almost all variations of flat roofs, whether they are circular, square, rectangular or multilevel.
