Platforms provide safety access over rooftop obstructions
Kee Safety of Concord, Ont. has introduced its new Crossover Safe Access Platforms to provide safe, efficient routes for maintenance, construction and other personnel when accessing rooftops of flat and low-sloped buildings.
Engineered to comply with OHS safety standards and provincial codes, the new multi-purpose Crossovers feature a Kee Walk anti-slip modular walkway and platform system with handrails that enables workers to step over piping, HVAC equipment and other obstructions as well as traverse changes in rooftop levels. The Crossovers can accommodate standing seam, metal profile, and other roof types, and they install without penetrating the roof membrane, according to Kee Safety.
Steps and platform floors are built using high-grade nylon treads, checker plate or steel grating. Base feet can be roof-mounted, have fixed feet, or a combination of both. Safety railings are constructed of Kee Lite Aluminum or Kee Klamp Galvanized Steel for strength, durability, and corrosion-resistance. The new Crossovers integrate seamlessly with Kee Safety OHS-compliant fall protection systems and equipment to deliver a complete rooftop safety solution, the company states.
Each Crossover Safe Access Platform is custom designed based on the specific rooftop application criteria to meet worker access and safety needs. They can be delivered in fully pre-assembled systems or with modular sections or partially-assembled flat-pack containers for simple, on-site installation, Kee Safety says.
