A temporary roof guardrail system is a roof edge protection system that is designed to 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..
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.
This depends on how long the edge protection will be required for and how often it would be used. If our customers are doing a quick one-off job we always recommend hiring. On the other hand, if the edge protection is used regularly or required for a long period of time, it usually makes better sense to purchase. EWRG are always happy to quote for both options to help our Customers decide which is a better way to go.
