High Rise Building Escapes Costly Repairs with a Roof Barrier System
Quick & Easy roof guardrail Installation
The facility maintenance team’s primary concern was looking for a non-penetrating self-ballasted rooftop guardrail and barrier system that is quick and easy for the contractor to install. They had originally specified a roof safety guardrail that required to be fastened to the rooftop, and would not only take multiple days to set up but also require a crane rental to bring the material up to the rooftop.
Self-Ballasted Roof Barrier System
Our team proposed the non-penetrating self-ballasted 5003 series RoofBarrier system.
- Its modular design made the solution extremely easy to transport.
- The design will also ensure the installation process is quick and easy for the subcontractors, reducing lead time and labor costs.
- Its lightweight construction allowed for the roof guardrail system to be brought to the roof via the building’s service elevators, eliminating the need for a crane rental in downtown Ottawa.
- With the 5003 RoofBarrier guardrails being a self-ballasted solution, there was no need for the unit to be fastened to the rooftop. Eliminating the need to make holes into the roof membrane that would have required costly repairs to reseal the roof.
