Rooftop Guardrail Protection at a Dangerous Transition
One of the most dangerous points of the roof is the transition point between the roof and the ladder. The KeeGuard® kit provides a layer of fall protection right where it's needed. The guard railing flanks the access point, ensuring a safe approach. Kee Gate® is a self-closing safety gate that ensures that the ladder access point is approached intentionally. The surrounding supports of the safety railing ensures that there is plenty of support when making the transition on and off the roof. Kee Guard offers a comprehensive safety guardrail solution that works well with Kee Guard Ladder Kit. For more safety guardrail solutions, please learn more about KeeGuard®.

Safety Railing Roof Edge Protection
On a flat or low slope roof, a protected perimeter limits access to the leading edge. Installing a modular, free-standing safety railing system that does not penetrate the roof membrane provides a permanent, safe and dependable safety guardrail barrier for the roof edge.

Instead of having to re-think each access point. Kee Guard® provides you with a quick way to deploy a workable safety rail solution to a wide variety of rooftop environments.
The kit is easy to install with a few simple hand tools, in most cases, no roof penetration is required

No. OSHA no longer considers chains to be an effective fall protection solution. The reason for this is simple – standing on a ladder and reattaching the chain during roof egress while maintaining 3 points of contact on the ladder is a dangerous activity with fatal potential.
