RoofWalk (anti-Slip Walkway)
The RoofWalk Walkway is designed to create a sure-footed walkway on your rooftop. This fully customizable platform utilizes non-slip materials and is installed above the roof membrane ensuring no damage is being done while it is being utilized. Utilizing our counterweighted baseplates and RoofGuard guardrails, this system can be tailored to any flat roof or low slope application, providing safer access to any workspace by eliminating slipping and fall hazards. Engineered for safety and built economically, the RoofWalk system is a must on any rooftop where constant roof access is required.

Frequently Asked Questions
What roof surfaces will RoofWalk Work on?
- RoofWalk systems are non-penetrating and designed to work on common commercial rooftops (membrane, steel and river rock).
Are RoofWalk surfaces non-slip?
- Yes. The vast majority of RoofWalk systems are made from grated aluminum, non-slip material. When specified by the customer, LFP can provide galvanized steel but aluminum is much lighter so it is more common.
Can RoofWalk be used on a sloped roof?
- Yes. RoofWalk can be installed on a sloped roof. However, the angle of the slope determines whether or not roof penetration is needed for guardrails and walkways.
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 RoofWalk integrate with guardrail systems?
- Yes. RoofWalk will integrate with RoofGuard to create a fully compliant walkway for workers who are working at heights.
When would I need a walkway?
- According to Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations in Housekeeping and Maintenance;
3) Every travelled surface in a work place shall be
(a) slip resistant; and
(b) kept free of splinters, holes, loose boards and tiles and similar defects.
