Standard Parapet Crossover Platform Kits (5 step, 4 step and 3 step)
Eliminate the potential of rooftop trip hazards over piping and other rooftop obstructions with RoofStep XS Series. This anti-skid walkway is designed in order to allow workers to safely move over obstructions located on the same roof level. With the addition of this pathway on your rooftop, you will be able to extend the life of your roof and prevent any damage from occurring to piping and other obstructions that are located on it. By preventing rooftop traffic from walking over or around obstructions on the roof you not only prevent injuries from occurring, but you also decrease the amount of time it will take to complete work on the roof.
This rooftop crossover system is completely customized for your rooftop in order to allow for the safe maneuverability of workers or contractors over any hazard that may be present on your roof. These rooftop work platforms are also designed in order to blend in with the existing roof aesthetics and can be customized in order to have anywhere from one step to several. When coupled with our RoofWalk System and RoofGuard Classic Guardrail System you will have a complete rooftop safety system and ensure the safety of both your roof and workers/contractors.
These crossover platform systems have been designed to meet or exceed all major North American safety standards/regulations including Ontario MOL requirements, ANSI, OSHA, Canadian OHS & WorkSafeBC.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does RoofStep attach to my parapet wall?
- Each RoofGuard system is designed to be freestanding and not require any drilling into your roof membrane. This is also true of RoofStep Ladder and Crossover systems, which also don’t require permanent attachment to your wall either.
Can a parapet wall be used as fall protection?
- Yes. A parapet wall would be similar to a guardrail system as long as it meets the minimum height requirement set out by Working at Heights legislation in your province. In Ontario the minimum height is 48 inches.
Is this something I could install on my own?
- We strongly recommend that any RoofGuard System is installed by one of our certified installers to ensure proper installation. Systems come with an installation manual, engineered drawings and can be performed with one tool.
Does RoofStep integrate with guardrail systems?
- Yes. RoofStep Ladder and Crossover systems will integrate with RoofGuard, since each system is modular and fully customizable. This enables end users to create a fully compliant system for workers who are working at heights.
What is RoofStep commonly used for?
- RoofStep is most commonly used for access up and over parapet walls. It is also used for other obstructions which cause a tripping hazard such as pipes, gaps and other hazards.
