Information
  • Fully meshed steel rails 
  • Stackable base weights 
  • Superb handling systems
  • Designed for roofers, contractors, rental stores, construction & safety supply retailers
  • For temporary use on any flat deck with unprotected edges such as roofs, slabs, shafts, stairwells and skylights
  • Designed & built to be the best, safest and most durable rail on the market
  • Quicker & easier to install than any other system on the market
  • No large gaps – this prevents personnel and materials from falling through or between rails
  • Each rail is fully meshed (6″ x 6″ squares)
  • The gap between rails is only 4″
  • Overhanging toprail ends further reduce the gap to 2″
  • Screw holes along the toeboard retaining angle allow wood toeboards with cut-outs to be screwed to the rail
  • Various galvanized rails offered – Standard Rails (in 3 lengths), Finishing Rails, Adjustable Rails & Gates
  • 11′ rails are longer than any other rail requiring less base weights
  • 11′ rails use 10′ long uncut studs as toeboards (2” x 4” minimum) eliminating sawing
  • Every weight base has 6 built-in toeboard brackets
  • Rails & weight bases are managed by a heavy duty handling system (bins, pallets, carts)
  • EdgeGuard® is in full compliance with OSHA – click here for more information

  • Shows the precise quantity of railing needed for the job
  • Shows how to achieve proper positioning
  • Recommends the appropriate parts
  • Contact us for your custom site sketch

Other guardrails:

  • Temporary guardrails are usually constructed of wood, steel or wire rope with netting & not usually tested after installation
  • Workers & safety inspectors do not deliberately lean on these barriers since they suspect the guardrail could fail
  • Wood guardrails are costly to build and the lumber is scrapped at the end of the job
  • Steel guardrails are heavy and require ample storage space
  • Wire rope guardrails are often slack which allows the top rail wire to deflect below the OSHA minimum height of 39″
