Gargoyle Skylight Guardrail
The dangers of working near rooftop skylights are very real. In fact, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has a comprehensive list of 966 fall through accidents involving skylights dating back to 1983, most of which were fatal. Our Gargoyle Skylight Guardrail System was specifically designed to address fall protection risks and regulations without minimizing light from your skylights. Each system is free standing and utilizes our counter weighted baseplates, eliminating the need for hardware connections that penetrate your rooftop and potentially cause leaks.
Factory Supply is the manufacturer of Gargoyle Rooftop Guardrail, a versatile, economical and modular rooftop guardrail system designed to protect employees and contractors that perform working at heights job functions. Not requiring any penetration of the roof membrane during installation eliminates the risk of leaks. And as a passive fall protection solution, Gargoyle Rooftop Guardrail is the preferred rooftop safety solution. Factory Supply’s guardrail products exceed all OSHA safety regulations, protecting your business from unnecessary liability or fines.
What To Expect From OSHA
The OSHA General Industry Standard requires that “every skylight floor opening and hole shall be guarded by a standard skylight screen or a fixed standard railing on all exposed sides” [29 CFR 1910.23(a)(4)].
