Safesite's new innovative Rooflight Cover provides vital protection against falls through fragile rooflights where regular access is required for maintenance and inspection purposes.
The cover's unique freestanding design means that rooflights can be quickly and easily protected by simply adjusting the telescopic sides and height to the required shape and size before lifting the cover into place. This versatile product can serve as either a temporary or permanent installation as no fixings are required to either the fragile rooflight or roofing membrane.
Safesite's Rooflight Cover has fluted rubber matting bonded to the underside of all components which come into contact with the roof membrane. This protects the membrane from damage via heat transfer or direct contact with components.
The Safesite Rooflight Cover has successfully passed external testing by SATRA to criteria and loadings taken from the ACR Red Book Test for Non-Fragility of Roof Assemblies. This test involved a 45kg weight free falling a distance of 1.2m to reach a maximum velocity. The Safesite Rooflight Cover arrested the load via deformation of the wire mesh panel and with no penetration of the wire mesh.
