In conjunction with a ManSafe fall protection system, a designated walkway system should be specified. Latchways’ WalkSafe walkway provides a level anti-slip surface, marking a designated route for workers to follow. WalkSafe can be affixed to all major roof types including standing-seam, composite, built-up on site, secret-fixand membraneand does not damage the integrity of the roof or compromise the guarantee.
The walkways are manufactured from recycled PVCu and are designed to provide a levelled, anti-slip, delineated walkway surface which affixes to the roofing system.
The WalkSafe system aids compliance with the Work at Height Regulations, CDM and Booklet HSG 33 ‘Health and Safety in Roof Work’ which gives extensive guidance on how to work safely on roofs.
WalkSafe can provide a demarcation route which guides a workers movement in areas where there are potential fall hazards, whilst eliminating wear and tear on the roofing systems in heavily trafficked areas.
