Gargoyle Rooftop Guardrail Systems

Rooftop guardrail systems eliminate the need for active fall protection equipment such as harnesses and lanyards, roof anchor systems, horizontal lifelines, and ongoing training requirements. Thus reducing the risk and costs that come with continual upkeep, training, fines and employee non-compliance. Have peace of mind knowing that each of our Gargoyle Rooftop Guardrail systems comes with a sign-off from our in-house engineering team. 

What Is Gargoyle Rooftop Guardrail?

Factory Supply manufactures Gargoyle Rooftop Guardrail, which is a versatile, economical and modular guardrail system designed to protect employees and contractors that perform working at heights job functions. This non penetrating rooftop system eliminates the risk of leaks and as a passive solution, reduces training requirements for employees. Gargoyle products exceed all OSHA safety regulations, protecting your business from unnecessary liability or fines.

Gargoyle makes installation easy with ergonomically designed nesting baseplates and standard kits for multiple applications as well as custom kits for specific applications.

Gargoyle Rooftop Guardrail is a versatile, economic and modular fall protection system designed to protect employees performing job functions at or near the leading edge of a rooftop. Systems are freestanding and non-penetrating. Meaning, they meet the lateral force requirements set out in industry standards and by OSHA while also not requiring installers to drill holes or otherwise attach systems to the roof.

Standard sizes available as well as custom configurations.

Gargoyle Hatch Guardrail is a freestanding Hatch Guardrail system, which is non-penetrating and safely protects workers from fall through open roof hatches. These systems meet the necessary lateral force requirements set out in fall protection engineering standards and by OSHA. They also come equipped with a spring loaded self closing gate that swings shut automatically for further protection with no participation needed by the user.

Standard sizes available as well as custom configurations.

The Gargoyle Skylight Guardrail system allows for optimum use of your skylight while ensuring that it does not become a fall protection liability. Each system meets or exceeds the lateral force requirements set out in standards and by OSHA. They will address all of your fall protection concerns without blocking light coming through your skylights.

Standard sizes available as well as custom configurations.

Warning lines or bump lines prevent falls by alerting workers to fall hazards. Warning lines are set up to create a safety zone around the work area from unprotected edges and holes. Safety zone dimension requirements can vary depending on the work being performed. Each system meets or exceeds the standard and regulatory requirements for bump lines set out by OSHA.

The system is freestanding, eliminating the need to pierce the roofing membrane, potentially exposing the system to leaks.

Gargoyle Walkway Series is designed to create a sure footed walkway on your rooftop. This fully customizable walkway system is non-slip and is installed above the roof membrane (much like other Gargoyle systems). Not only does this system protect your roof from damage by being non penetrating but it also integrates with other Gargoyle systems like our edge protection, parapet ladders, crossover platforms and ladder egress systems.

Gargoyle Ladder Series gives you the option of two unique and innovative parapet ladder systems (ladder and crossover) that allow users to move safely up and over an obstruction or between levels. These systems are freestanding and modular. They can also be customized to fit the users specific requirements. They meet or exceed all engineering standards and OSHA requirements related to ladders (for this use case), and working at heights.

The Gargoyle Ladder Guardrail system helps you avoid Working at Heights non compliance. These guardrail systems are designed to create an egress from the leading edge of a rooftop when entering or exiting a fixed access ladder. These systems are freestanding, modular and can be customized to attach to a variety of different ladder and grab bar configurations.

Gargoyle Agile Series is designed with pre-fabricated rail sections which can be installed and dismantled quickly for temporary applications without sacrificing quality or safety. These systems are freestanding and non-penetrating so they require no holes in your roof membrane to install.

Systems can be ordered in different multiples of six feet and nine feet or combinations using both.

Gargoyle Platform Series

Factory Supply designs, engineers and fabricates custom rooftop maintenance platforms to protect your employees while working at heights. Equipment maintenance may require elevated access on a rooftop, which can put employees at risk. The use of railed platforms surrounding the equipment will eliminate the risks while improving work performance and productivity.

We work with a number of different industries (including the aviation industry) and our products meet both OSHA and the appropriate engineering standards for each platform.
