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.

Passive Vs Active Fall Protection

When a hazard assessment is completed, and a need for fall protection is established, there are two general types of systems that can solve the need and keep the workers safe, passive or active fall protection.

Passive Fall Protection
A “passive” fall protection system refers to a system that is non-dynamic, stationary, and does not move or adapt or change when in or out of use. They do not require the use of Personal Protective Equipment or active participation from the worker. Typical passive solutions include Guardrails or Netting Systems. This is the preferred choice for its ease of use without the need for additional training and PPE.
Active Fall Protection
An “active” Fall Protection System requires the use of special equipment and participation by the worker. There are two types of Active Fall Protection Systems, fall restraint and fall arrest systems. These systems share the common feature of securing the worker wearing a full-body harness to an anchorage point with some type of connecting system, depending on the application. Active Fall Protection Systems include Fall Arrest Anchors, Roof Anchors, and Safety Harness’.
