The Railguard 200 system offers the ultimate in roof edge and hazardous area protection. The Railguard 200 system can be set up quickly and be used along the roof edge, material storage areas and all hazardous openings. Capable of withstanding a 200 lb. horizontal force without tipping over, Railguard 200 qualifies as a Motion Stopping Safety System which allows men and equipment to work next to the roof edge. Easy set-up and OSHA rated specifications reduce labor cost for set-up and dismantling and give your work site the degree of safety no contractor can afford to be without. The Railguard 200 system also offers a high degree of protection with complete freedom of movement. The system is available in three railing lengths of 10 foot, 7 1/2 foot and 5 foot. Each base weighs 114 lbs. and a two-wheeled transporter is also available to move bases around easily. OSHA requirements state that safety railing or some form of Motion Stopping Safety System must be used when work is being done between the warning line system and the roof edge. A guardrail system must be used around hoisting areas and bitumen pipe outlets and extend four feet either side of the access opening. Materials must not be stored within six feet of the roof edge unless protected by a guardrail system. See www.railguard.net for a complete product offering.
