A protective rail (height at least 1 metre) increases safety and the sense of security when one is on the roof.
A guardrail is what is known as a collective fall protection, and for low-pitched roofs of less than 6 degrees, the entire roof can be encompassed by guardrails. One can then move without having to be anchored with personal fall protection.
Walkways can be fitted with guardrails, and then one can move along these without being anchored with personal fall protection. If the walkway is placed closer to the ridge that 1 m, guardrails are necessary on both sides; if the distance is longer, it is enough to have one guardrail in the direction of the pitch.
Roof ladders can be fitted with a guardrail. On steep ladders sloping more than 30 degrees and lengths exceeded 4 metres, one must be anchored even if a guardrail is in place.
Working platforms must also have guardrails in the direction of the pitch.
The mounting plate is used for safe and durable attachment on the waterproofing surface on bitumen-based and synthetic membranes.
The advantage of the CWL mountingplate is that no damage is done to the sealing surface.
The mounting plate can be attached either above the existing waterproof membrane roof or below it, which provides the most aesthetically pleasing appearance. It may be a good idea to plan the roof safety measures before applying the waterproofing membrane.
