The Problem: exposed skylights

Skylights are popular in many Pacific Northwest buildings, offering natural light on even the cloudiest days. However, they pose a significant safety risk, especially in industrial and commercial settings. One of the main dangers of skylights is that people often think they’re safe to step on, making them an unrecognized hazard. In reality, skylights are an open void in the roof that workers may accidently step or fall through.

Such falls can seriously harm rooftop workers and damage your company’s reputation for safety. Additionally, regulatory bodies such as OSHA require employers to provide adequate fall protection for workers, including protection around skylights. With such serious consequences at stake, addressing this issue is paramount to ensuring the safety of everyone operating near skylights.

The Solution: Skylight screens or Guardrail

Skylight fall protection systems are the best solution for keeping workers safe on often wet and slippery northwest roofs. Two effective ways to protect your workers are by using skylight railings and screens.

These systems are robust and versatile, designed to securely cover or surround skylights with a protective barrier while allowing natural light to filter through. Simply Safety Solutions skylight fall protection systems are engineered to meet or exceed safety standards and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements without blocking light or ventilation.


Skylight Screens

Also known as skylight grids or cages, this solution places a metal screen over a skylight to prevent falls or lacerations. They are an excellent option for passive skylight protection and are durable enough to exceed the lifespan of any skylight.

  • Right for Your Roof: A great option for flat, trapezoidal, and standing seam roofs.
  • Durable Materials: Made from galvanized steel or aluminum, these wire screens are built to outlast the life of the skylights they protect.
  • Affordable Pricing: Skylight screens offer the most affordable skylight protection systems.
  • Rigorously Tested: We test our skylight screens far beyond the industry standards at one of the world’s leading test centers so you can be sure of their quality and longevity.

Skylight Railing

Skylight railings offer an easy-to-assemble and highly customizable option for vents, hatches, roof lights, and domed or pyramid lights. They utilize a weighted base and can be assembled with simple hand tools, so you can quickly install your safety features.

  • Permanent and Damage-Free: Freestanding railings do not need to penetrate your roof membrane to provide long-lasting protection.
  • Custom Designed: No matter your unique needs, skylight railings offer a modular solution that adjusts to any shape or size of skylight.
  • Easy On-Site Adjustment: Skylight guardrails can be adjusted and moved on-site, allowing you to get the fit just right.
  • Maintain the View: A dome system can maximize the amount of light through your skylight without sacrificing safety.

Benefits of Simple Safety Skylight Fall Protection

Get the safety you need for any skylight, roof, or budget.

Fall Prevention

Skylights can quickly transform from a useful source of light into a dangerous trap. Because they are low-profile and easy to miss, workers are at risk of stepping or falling through them while performing essential tasks. Skylight fall protection systems eliminate the risk of falls through open voids by securely covering these openings, protecting workers from injury and reducing the likelihood of accidents. With skylight fall protection systems in place, workers can confidently perform tasks on rooftops or near skylights, knowing they are protected.

Customizable

Skylight fall protection systems are available in various sizes and configurations and can be customized to fit different skylight dimensions and layouts for a tailored solution. Even the largest skylights can be protected with modular fall protection.

Compliance

OSHA requires any hole four feet or higher above a lower level to feature some type of fall protection solution. Skylight covers cannot hold a person’s weight and won’t prevent them from falling to a lower level. Fortunately, our skylight fall protection systems meet or exceed safety standards set by regulatory bodies, ensuring compliance with industry regulations and avoiding potential penalties or fines. We can also work with you to design the best safety solution for your skylights to stay in compliance with OSHA and other regulations.

Cost Savings

Skylight screens and cages offer the safety solutions you need at nearly any budget level. While skylight screens are the most affordable safety coverage, many customers opt for skylight railings because they meet a specific need. In addition, investing in skylight fall protection systems can reduce the risk of workplace accidents, worker compensation claims, and legal liabilities, leading to long-term cost savings.

Non-Penetrating

Skylight fall protection systems are simple and intuitive in design and can be installed quickly and easily, minimizing downtime and operational disruptions. Skylight screen systems attach directly to the skylight frame without penetrating the roof membrane, preserving the integrity of the roof structure and reducing the risk of leaks or damage. Skylight railings employ weighted bases to provide robust worker safety without penetrating the roof.

the Bottom Line

Investing in skylight fall protection is a proactive step toward making northwest rooftop work safer without disrupting the beauty your building’s skylights provide. Our skylight fall protection systems offer a range of options for your individual needs while setting a lasting safety standard.
