RoofGuard X-Press Rails

RoofGuard X-Press Rooftop Guardrail

fall safety

RoofGuard X-Press is a unique, easy to install rooftop guardrail system. This rooftop fall protection system is designed with pre-fabricated rail sections which can be installed and dismantled quickly for temporary applications, without sacrificing quality, durability and most importantly safety.  

This unique rooftop guardrail system gives you the ability to design your own rooftop guardrail solution, allowing you to determine how much linear coverage you wish to cover, from 8 feet to over 100 feet and longer!

RoofGuard X-Press comes in two distinct rail lengths, the 8-foot rail length is powder coated in high-visibility safety yellow and the 6-foot rail sections are powder coated in grey. The reason these colours where chosen is to allow for simplistic assembly. The 8-foot lengths are designed to go on the roof’s leading edge and the 6-foot guardrail sections are for the returns/ ballast. The yellow guardrail also serves as a warning sign for workers who get too close to the roof edge, allowing them to always be aware of where the danger is.

Just like with our all of our RoofGuard products, RoofGuard X-Press uses a counterweight system, which involves no cutting into the existing rooftop surface. The railing thus has no direct or permanent attachment to your roof, meaning no holes, which means there is no re-sealing which meaning you will have no leaks!

RoofGuard has been designed to meet or exceed all major North American safety standards/regulations including Ontario MOL requirements, ANSIOSHAOHSA & WorkSafeBC.
