Parapet and Slab Edge Protection

This month Stronghold Hire were asked to provide edge protection to 2 balconies to allow safe access whilst work is being carried out. The client needed to waterproof the area so requested no drilling take place and that no anchors were to be used. Two of the systems we use do not require anchors.

Edge Protection System

This job had a small upturn or ‘hob’ all the way around the rooftop. It was just enough for us to use our parapet clamp system.

Benefit of Parapet & Slab System

The benefits of the parapet and slab edge protection system used meant that the builder was able to complete the work needed and remain safe. He not only protected himself but others on the work site. This collective form of fall protection is rated for multiple users and doesn’t require any personal fall protective equipment and no specific training to use. One of the reasons that we decided to choose the edge rail system that we provide, is that it can integrate easily with scaffolding. On this project, we used scaffolding to allow hoist access. Another benefit is that the parapet system is very quick to install thus allowing a quick install and minimal downtime for the builder.

Versatile Edge Rail Systems

The edge rail systems that we offer are very versatile and can adapt to many different scenarios. With noninvasive options and a wide variety of brackets, we can usually find a solution for most work-at-height needs. Also, we offer both heavy-duty steel scaffold and lightweight aluminum scaffold, sometimes used in conjunction with the edge rail system, we can usually find a suitable, cost-effective solution to eliminate your fall from height risks. All edge rail systems are compliant with AS/NZS 4994.2 and scaffolding standards AS/NZS 4576 and AS/NZS 1576.
