Building owners and employers are responsible for protecting their workers from any hazard encountered while on the job. In jobs requiring access to roofs for maintenance purposes, fall protection is usually required if workers will be exposed to a fall hazard.
Will installation of Kee Guard reduce insurance premiums?
Insurance premiums are often impacted by steps taken by the building owner to reduce hazards to their workers. More importantly, building owners’ liability will be strictly examined if an industrial accident occurs and preventative measures (such as Kee Guard) were not taken.
KeeGuard components can be painted by the customer before or after installation. KeeGuard components are also available powder coated in any RAL color at the customer’s request (extra charges apply for powder coating). Powder coating takes place prior to shipment.
Yes. KeeGuard Roof Edge Fall Protection Railing System is a passive, collective fall protection system that is preferred by safety consultants. Lives have been lost in work-related falls resulting from workers not using harnesses properly. The KeeGuard system removes the potential of that risk. Harness systems require training and proper and regular use. The embedded anchor for a harness system could later leak and cause costly water damage. The worry of not having enough harnesses for rooftop workers is eliminated.
With the use of the new Kee Guard open style fitting (standard), two workers with minimal experience and simple hand tools can be installed up to twice as fast as most other systems. All materials should be delivered to the rooftop using a hoist, crane or other mechanical methods. No power tools are required.
Galvanized pipe is used for vertical, horizontal and counterbalance supports and Kee Klamp fittings are all galvanized at our factory. The grub screws used to assemble the fittings and pipes together are all protected by Kee Koat® which is a special corrosion-resistant coating. Kee Guard fall protection system is engineered using special fittings and is designed to withstand a full range of outdoor conditions.
The system employs a tested and proven counterbalance system, the KeeGuard system (Patents in effect) is a roof edge railing fall protection system that keeps the workers on the roof without endangering the roof membrane itself.
Each Kee Guard counterbalance weighs only 30 pounds and has an insulating rubber pad on the underside which is installed at the factory. Each counterbalance is spaced sufficiently to make the entire system deliver less weight per square foot than the average worker who might have to walk on the roof.
