EdgeGuard® Rails

EdgeGuard® Rails

Portable Safety Rails for worker fall protection (full steel mesh).


  • 42″ tall fully meshed steel rails 
  • 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 42″ tall and 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
  • Rails are managed by a heavy duty handling system (pallets, carts)
  • EdgeGuard® is in full compliance with OSHA – click here for more information

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″


EdgeGuard® is designed solely for use by workers in industrial & construction work environments. It is not designed for use in places where the general public would be in contact with the system. Railing systems for the general public require special consideration due to the presence of children, elderly, visually impaired and others. Canadian Patent No. 2,472,814.
