Gargoyle Rooftop Guardrail

A versatile, economic and modular fall protection system designed to protect employees performing job functions at, or near, the leading edge while working at heights. Gargoyle Guardrail systems eliminate the need for active fall protection equipment such as harnesses and lanyards, roof anchor systems, horizontal lifelines, and training.

This free-standing rooftop system comes pre-engineered and is packaged for cost effective shipping. Our freestanding, portable, modular systems are constructed with corrosion resistant lightweight aluminum tubing and utilize counter-weighted baseplates, so no roof penetration is required, meaning that your roof remains intact. Our unique, low-profile, stackable base plates weigh only 40 lbs and are designed with a carry handle allowing for an easy, ergonomically friendly installation.

Once a guardrail is in position, all individuals working in that area are protected from potential fall hazards, and they do not require further Working at Heights training or fall protection.
Don’t risk expensive fines for compliance violations. Our affordable and reliable system is the solution you need to keep employees and customers safe from potential falls.
What To Expect From OSHA

OSHA 1910.29(b) contains system requirements that employers must follow to ensure guardrail systems will protect workers from falling to lower levels.

1910.29(b)(1) The top edge height of top rails, or equivalent guardrail system members, are 42 inches (107 cm), plus or minus 3 inches (8 cm), above the walking working surface. The top edge height may exceed 45 inches (114 cm), provided the guardrail system meets all other criteria of paragraph (b) of this section.

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’.
