The Problem: open Roof Hatches

Navigating rooftop hatches presents a host of safety concerns. When workers must access a roof, uneven or rain slicked surfaces coupled with the transition to or from a ladder can make an open hatch a severe safety hazard.

OSHA mandates protecting roof access points with standard railings and gates, yet accidents still occur due to insufficient safety measures. Many workers also prefer not to close rooftop hatches to avoid lockouts, adding urgency to this critical fall-prevention safety measure.

Without proper protection, rooftop hatches remain potential accident sites, jeopardizing worker safety and exposing northwest employers to liabilities. The good news is that a simple fix can prevent these dangers.

The Solution: Roof Hatch Railing Kits

Roof hatch railings are the ultimate solution for rooftop hatch safety. We engineer these railings to comply with OSHA standards, ensure safe egress and ingress through hatches, and safeguard the roof opening when the hatch is in use. They seamlessly integrate with existing openings and ladderways, providing a comprehensive safety solution for rooftop access points.

Key Features

Secure Roof Access

We design roof hatch railings to protect access points around rooftop hatches, mitigate the risks of accidents, and provide a secure barrier to prevent unauthorized entry. In addition to safety concerns, hatch railings make climbing on and off the roof easier by offering more grab points to maintain three points of ladder contact.

Versatile Designs

With standard, forward barrier, offset, double leaf, and fire vent configurations, we have a safety railing that perfectly fits Bilco, Babcock Davis & Nystrom RailingReady roof hatches, and all others.

Durable

The roof hatch railing system is constructed from high-quality materials and built to withstand the rigors of rooftop environments and wet Pacific Northwest winters, providing long-lasting reliability. Aluminum is a longer-lasting alternative to plastic or FRP that withstands year-round UV exposure without breaking.

Self-Closing Gate

The roof hatch railing system features a self-closing gate mechanism, which enhances safety during transitions through rooftop hatches and ensures that the opening is securely enclosed when not in use.

Non-Penetrating

The system’s mounting brackets attach directly to the hatch frame without penetrating the roof membrane or hatch curb, preserving the integrity of the roof structure against wet weather and minimizing potential damage.

Exceeds OSHA

The roof hatch railing system meets and exceeds OSHA requirements for rooftop safety, providing a compliant solution that ensures adherence to industry standards and regulations. Three guard rails protect the hatch when the door is closed and clearly mark its location to avoid tripping or damage. The hatch lid is designed with safety in mind, meeting the requirements for a leading-edge barrier when in the open position and thus not requiring an additional guardrail.

Benefits of a roof hatch Railing
