Standard Parapet Ladder Kits (5 step, 4 step and 3 step)
The RoofStep Ladder (LD) series is a modular system that enables workers to move from one level to another with guardrails on the upper elevation to help prevent a fall to the lower level. Upgrade your system to safely scale parapet walls and other changes of elevation on your rooftop with this fall protection system. These fall prevention systems come in several different styles of kits and are designed to have the engineered ladders on the face and back of the parapet walls and a platform over the parapet area in order to help protect the roof. This fall safety system utilizes our RoofGuard baseplates in order to ensure optimum weight is allotted to all of the engineered approved points, all the while without requiring any drilling into the rooftop, meaning you will not have any resealing worries.
These rooftop safety systems come in standard (or custom) kits; elements of the system are pre-assembled with simple to follow instructions and a singular tool for installation. This free-standing, portable, modular system is constructed with corrosion resistant lightweight aluminum tubing and utilizes counter weighted baseplates. With no rooftop penetration, your roof will remain intact and you will not have to worry about any unexpected leaks.
