Gargoyle Hatch Guardrail

A permanent freestanding guardrail system, which is non penetrating, and safely protects workers from falls through open rooftop hatches. Gargoyle Hatch Guardrail allows for our guardrail system to be integrated with virtually any rooftop opening. This system comes standard with a spring loaded gate, ensuring the gate always returns to the safe closed position. An optional fixed grab bar when exiting or entering the rooftop can be included as requested.

Custom sizes are available for non standard hatches or rooftop openings.

Injury incident

Accident Report Detail:

At approximately 11:20 a.m. on April 11, 2008, an employee sustained a fracture to his right leg when he fell through a roof opening designed for a roof hatch plan, 10-feet, 10-inches elevation, to the concrete floor below. The area was above the planned electrical room with a newly sheeted roof. The emergency medical services were called. Upon assessment of the employee’s condition by the paramedic, he was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he underwent surgery for fractured leg and in-patient hospitalization for a day.

Passive Vs Active Fall Protection

Passive Fall Protection
A “passive” fall protection system refers to a system that is non-dynamic, stationary, and does not move or adapt or change when in or out of use. They do not require the use of Personal Protective Equipment or active participation from the worker. Typical passive solutions include Guardrails or Netting Systems. This is the preferred choice for its ease of use without the need for additional training and PPE.
Active Fall Protection
An “active” Fall Protection System requires the use of special equipment and participation by the worker. There are two types of Active Fall Protection Systems, fall restraint and fall arrest systems. These systems share the common feature of securing the worker wearing a full-body harness to an anchorage point with some type of connecting system, depending on the application. Active Fall Protection Systems include Fall Arrest Anchors, Roof Anchors, and Safety Harness’.
