Frequently Asked Questions

  • 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..

  • Do I need temporary or permanent roof protection?

    For construction and one-off maintenance work, hiring or buying a temporary roof guardrail in Australia is usually the best solution. For areas that will be accessed regularly, permanent height safety systems are a more cost-effective choice.

  • 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. One the the best efficiencies temporary edge protection systems provide is use as an alternative to (or in conjunction with) ground-up scaffolding.
