Roofing is one of the most physically hazardous jobs based on
injuries and the severity of injuries when they occur. While there is
no way to remove 100% of all risks when it comes to roofing,
especially if you will be climbing up and down ladders, having a
safety rail in place is a great way to easily and affordably remove
much of the risk of falls.
While there are other safety supplies on the market, such as safety
harnesses, rails are often a preferable choice. They only need to be
installed once and then you are protected whenever you are on the
roof. Harnesses must be reattached to your body each time you work.
Additionally, harnesses can limit your freedom of motion, whereas
railings do not hinder your movements at all.
Our safety rails are also lightweight, so they will not damage your
roof at all. They’re made from aluminium, which is a material that
is known for its tensile strength and weather resistance. They can be
used for extended periods outdoors without rusting, corroding or
otherwise degrading with exposure to the weather. Despite their
lightweight design, they are still highly durable and sturdy enough
to protect you in the event of a fall.
Our team provides safety railing installations, or you can easily
install the railings yourself. If you want us to install, we will
also drop off the railing system and then come back to disassemble
and remove it when the job is done and they are no longer needed.
Mackay Safety Rail provides full-service installation and removal
services for all of our rails. We will assess your roof and help you
determine just the right options for you and your situation. Get in
