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.

RoofStep Parapet Ladder 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’.
