Crash Guard Safety Rails
Safety Rail systems protect personnel, machinery, and building structures. They can be utilized in many other situations as well. They will improve plant safety and efficiency by reducing cost associated with employee injury, machinery down time, insurance claims, and building repairs due to accidental collisions. All measurements are center to center of posts. Rails are 10 gauge formed steel with 5/8″ steel plate base. Columns are structural steel beam. For special length rails, use next longer length for cost.
There are 4 major types of temporary guardrails:
- Non-Penetrating guardrails: Non-penetrating guardrails use heavy post bases to withstand OSHA’s minimum 200-pound force requirement.
- Architectural guardrails: Architectural guardrails are most often found on rooftops. They keep workers away from dangerous roof and parapet edges and thanks to their backward sloping design (as opposed to fully vertical rails), they’re less visible from the ground, thus maintaining a pleasing exterior visual aesthetic.
- Collapsible guardrails: collapsible guardrails fold flat without moving their bases. Many times, these guardrails are the best option when the rails need to be placed in exactly their previous spot. As they are never fully removed from their location, there’s no guesswork in getting them back into position.
