The Facilities Manager at Sysco reached out through the website contact form requesting a quote for a small section of railing and a hatch kit. Sysco purchased a few small sections of first-generation Kee Guard for their facility many years ago and wanted more. After an in-person rooftop safety audit, it was determined that they needed significantly more railing, as well as some stairways and crossovers.
Aesthetic Design Meets OSHA Compliance in Custom Full-Coverage System
Providing fall protection for maintenance personnel and safe escape routes were both critical parts of the project. Kee Safety was able to provide a comprehensive solution and turnkey installation service to streamline the project. All solutions were non-penetrating to preserve the customer’s roof warranty and prevent roof leaks. The system's modular design allowed for quick and efficient installation. The use of high-quality, durable materials ensured that the safety measures will stand the test of time, offering peace of mind for both maintenance staff and management.
Versatility Meets Compliance
In a nutshell, our partnership with Sysco shows just how versatile Kee Safety's solutions can be. What started as a simple request for a small section of railing and a hatch kit, ended as a full-on, custom safety system that looks great and meets or exceeds all OSHA standards. It's a win-win that proves when it comes to safety, you don't have to compromise.
