About Our Skylight Screens and Railings Fall Protection
Our commercial and industrial skylight railings and skylight screens prevent falls through skylights. According to OSHA statistics, these accidents are a major cause of death from falls. The Safety Rail Source provides the solutions for protecting against such falls with our E-Z to install, non-penetrating product line. Our skylight railings and skylight screens meet OSHA standards and are designed to withstand up to a 400 pound load requirement if required. Our skylight screens include protection for domed, standing seam and corrugated skylights. For larger skylights, we offer KeeGuard Skylight Railing Systems. In our skylight screens product line, we offer galvanized or stainless steel mesh. Installation of our skylight protection products is easy, quick and can be performed either by your contractor or your maintenance staff. Installation of our STS and SSS models is completed with an engineered clamp-on type connection. Our skylight railings are free-standing and non-penetrating and manufactured with heavy duty galvanized pipe and fittings. They are shipped in a kit and assembled with a hex key.
