KITE ROOF EDGE FREESTANDING PROTECTION SYSTEM is a permanent, modular, self supporting guardrail system that is placed on the flat roof surface, now comprising of Moulded KITE Rubber Weights.
Our system is entirely Freestanding so there is no need for drilling or penetration of the roof covering. The system is supplied in a kit form ready to build and the modular components are QUICK and EASY to link together.
Rubber weights have a longer life span and are less suseptible to environmental conditions. Rubber won't chip or crack if accidentally dropped.
Our unique freestanding roof guardrails provide a safe environment for personnel who are working on flat roof areas, maintaining equipment such as air conditioning units, water tanks and aerials etc.
The system will also take very little time and is easy to install and maintain. Its modular design means that it will create minimum disruption should it need repairing or parts removed.
Stability is provided by cantilever counter balance weights and our patent pending system can be easily installed around the complete roof perimeter or as a guide rail for a specific area or piece of equipment to provide a permanent safe working area.
Available in compete systems or individual components wit either rubber or concrete weights.
