Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a Roof Guardrail system?

    A temporary roof guardrail system, designed for concrete block and blockwork structures, is a roof edge protection system. It helps mitigate the risks for construction and maintenance personnel when working at height. Sometimes called roof handrail, roof edge protection systems extend around the perimeter of the area in question to prevent workers from falling when near the edge.

  • At what height is edge protection required?

    Specific standards vary by State, but according to OHS regulations and industry guidelines, edge protection is generally required in all cases where contractors and employees are working at a height of 2m or greater. This includes not just roofs but any surface where it is possible to fall 2 metres or more..

  • What are the requirements for temporary edge protection?

    For core-filled or concrete blockwork structures, a temporary roof guardrail design must include a minimum of three handrails. The bottom rail should be located from 150 mm to 250 mm above the roof line or surface workers are standing on. The top rail should be between 900mm and 1100mm, with a gap to a middle rail of no more than 450mm from top and bottom rails. The bottom rail must be located no more than 225mm horizontally away from the edge of the roof/work surface. The angle of the handrails must be within 15 degrees of the roof/work surface pitch. For surfaces with gradients of 26 degrees or more, the guardrail must have sheeting or mesh material that reaches at least 900 mm above the base. All EWRG systems are designed to comply with Australian Standard AS4994.1.

  • How much does roof edge protection cost?

    Temporary roof edge protection systems are priced in lineal metres. Rates for dry hire and purchase vary based on the location, type of system, duration of hire and quantity. All our systems are priced to be cost effective for our customers and deliver bottom line returns on their projects.
