About Tile Roof

Whether installing a new tile roof, undertaking a roof restoration job, or doing repairs due to storm damage or wear and tear — East West Roof Guardrail has an edge protection solution to suit the job.

The tile roof systems at East West Roof Guardrail are fixed to the roof’s rafters via a bracket and concealed under the roof’s tiles to protect from water ingress to the roof cavity and soffit while the works are undertaken. They minimise obstruction to the working area, which is particularly important when completing roof restoration or painting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tile roof edge protection is a type of edge protection intended for use on tile roof systems. The system aims to provide fall protection for roof tilers, allowing them to work confidently throughout the tiling application.

Here are some benefits of edge protection for tile roof systems.

Safety — The primary benefit of edge protection systems is the increased safety they provide for roofers and other workers who are on the job. These systems can help prevent falls — a major cause of injury and death in the construction industry.
Increases productivity — As a natural consequence of guaranteed safety, installing edge protection systems can help increase productivity on the job site. By providing a safe and stable working environment, workers can focus on their tasks rather than worrying about falling over the edge.
Customisability — Edge protection systems can be customised to fit the specific needs of a project. This can be particularly helpful when working on roofs with unique shapes or configurations.

The Hidden Tile System is a type of edge protection designed for use on existing tile roofs during re-roofing, roof restoration, painting or maintenance. It can be installed on the rafters and completely concealed under most common types of roof tile, maintaining the waterproof integrity of the roof. The system allows for access to 100% of the roof surface.

The Thru Tile System, on the other hand, is designed for use on new tile roofs. It is a traditional tile edge protection system that provides a handrail at the gutter line. The bracket is installed by screwing it into the rafter, providing a safe working environment for roof tilers. Once the tiles have been installed, the system can be dismantled, and the last few tiles can be adjusted into place along the gutter line.

Both these systems are available for both dry hire and purchase at EWRG.
