Safe Access

Industry Overview

Reducing rooftop risk

Our modular height safety systems are the simplest way to provide permanent access and collective protection for rooftops and other scenarios where falls could occur.

Every Modular Safety Systems height safety system is:

  • Permanent for reduced costs over the life of the building (compared to temporary access solutions)
  • Collective to protect everybody from harm, and the architect, contractor and owner from liability
  • Adaptable to suit any roof and access requirement
  • Lightweight high-grade aluminium for easy installation
  • Inherently corrosion-resistant to stand the test of time
  • Quality assured manufactured to ISO 9001 quality management standards
  • Modular so it can be delivered in days

Every Modular Safety Systems height safety system is backed up by a comprehensive service offering, informed by over 40 years of construction engineering experience. All of which means you can quickly and easily meet your obligations, reduce maintenance costs, and de-risk work at height for the building occupier and their contractors.

Complete permanent collective safe access systems

There are numerous ways that the building and roof space can be made a safe area. The image shows how personnel can be protected by the installation of permanent safety solutions and guided to walk only in designated areas through the use of purpose designed rooftop walkway. Modular Safety Systems can assist you with roof risk assessment and follow on with the supply of access equipment suitable for many applications, whether it be a stepover unit for M&E services, a permanent ladder to gain further access or roof edge protection railings.
