Frequently Asked Questions

    • Is KeeGuard required by law?
      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 KeeGuard 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 KeeGuard) were not taken.
    • Can the KeeGuard system be painted?
      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.
    • Can KeeGuard be used as an anchor?
      The KeeGuard system is not intended as an anchor and cannot be used as an anchor or tie off point to support any workers or equipment suspended off the roof.
    • Does the KeeGuard system comply with the current US and Canada safety regulations?
      The KeeGuard system has been tested to comply with and exceed US OSHA codes.
    • Does the KeeGuard system offer advantages over a horizontal life line system or harness system?
      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.
    • Is KeeGuard more expensive than using a harness/tie-off system?
      When you consider the ongoing cost of training and system re-certification, the installed cost of KeeGuard is competitive with horizontal life line systems.
    • How do I buy the KeeGuard system?
      Each KeeGuard System is individually engineered for your premises. Contact us directly with the information on this website.
