Roof & Edge Protection

RHC Lifting are approved installers of KeeSafety’s products who offer roof and edge protection solutions. RHC Lifting are now licensed to supply and install KeeSafety products; KeeWalk (roof top walkway system), KeeGuard (collective edge protection), KeeDome (skylight protection).

KeeWalk

The KeeWalk system provides a safe, anti-slip, level, walking surface which protects the roof surface from unnecessary damage and uniformly distributes the pedestrian load. The demarcation route provides a safe path for workers and reduces the fall risks through fragile roofs. 


The walkway caters for flat, barrel and sloping roofs, with steps and a traverse option allowing access to be created for virtually any roof configuration from 0 to 35 degrees. The open nylon tread ensures water drains away easily, enhancing slip resistance. 

The standard components remove the need to have parts specifically manufactured, with 1.5m or 3m lengths supplied as standard and steps which only require minor adjustments on-site, making installation quick and simple. 

 

KeeWalk is the only permanent walkway system which complies fully with EN 516:2006 Class 1-C (prefabricated accessories for roofing installations for roof access, walkways, treads and steps), which became mandatory in 2006 and the walkway also achieves slip resistance standard BS3592 in both wet and dry conditions. 

KeeGuard

KeeGuard is a free standing collective edge protection solution that works using counterweights. Using recycled PVC weights, the KeeGuard system does not penetrate the roof membrane and ensures the safety of anyone who has access onto a flat roof. 


KeeGuard is suitable for flat concrete, asphalt, PVC membrane roofs with a maximum of 3 degrees of slope. All components have a galvanised finish ensuring the whole system is corrosion resistant. 

KeeGuard is supplied as a modular prefabricated kit and is designed to be installed and fitted with no welding, bending or threading on site and with no special tools. As a result of this the KeeGuard system is quick to install reducing installation costs. 

The KeeGuard system compiles with rooftop safety standards: 

  • EN ISO 14122 Part 3 - Safety of machinery - permanent means of access to machinery Part 3 - Stairs, stepladders and guard-rails 
  • EN 13374 Class A - European standard for temporary edge protection 
  • HSG-33 - Health and safety in roof work 
  • HSE INDG 284 - Working on roofs 
  • BS 6399 Part 2 1995 - Wind code 

 

Potential Options include: 

  • KeeGuard Topfix Lite is a unique guardrail which is especially designed for standing seam metal roofs. The base plate is fitted to the standing seam profile by two part clamps and doesn’t penetrate the roof. 
  • KeeGuard Lite offers the same safety levels as the standard KeeGuard but is made from lightweight aluminium components, further reducing the installation costs effort. 

KeeDome

The KeeDome is a safety solution for skylights, designed specifically to prevent falls through skylights or open hatches. The sturdy recycled PVC bases lock the posts into position around the corners of a skylight. The fittings and tube are used to construct a rigid frame. 


The KeeDome system structure complies with BS EN ISO 14122 Part 3 and remains completely free-standing and doesn’t penetrate the roof membrane. Keedome system fits square and rectangular skylights, rooflights and domelights. 

 

Potential Options include: 

  • Access Gates 
  • KeeDome Mini is an unobtrusive solution which minimizes the risk of falling through a skylight. The cross bracing is designed close to the height of the skylight, meaning the product is not visible above the building roofline whilst keeping the skylight secure.
