Edge Protection with Pole-Up System for Roof Project

On the project Stronghold Hire was tasked to provide roof edge protection on a quick turnaround to a builder who had unfortunately been let down by another company.

Pole-Up System for Roof Edge Protection

On this job, we again opted to use our pole-up system. The builder helped by adding a few timber blocks for use to install the brackets. The builder was impressed by our strong shiny brackets that of course complies with AS/NZS 4994.2

Benefits of Pole-up Edge Protection

The pole-up system used on this project gave the builders and roofers clear access to the working area and also left them room for them to install the gutters. Because the system used can integrate easily with a scaffold due to the handrails being aluminum scaffold tubes of 48mm diameter, the same size as our existing scaffold stock; connecting the edge protection to the existing scaffolding allowed full and complete roof edge protection and roof access.

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.
