SafePro Roof Hatch Safety Rails are patented and made of 100% steel, not fiberglass. The entire system consists of 10 bolts and four rails, and it can be installed in under 30 minutes. SafePro safety rails come with a 20-year warranty, and a three year finish warranty. The design is ergonomic, OSHA compliant, and eliminates the need for a ladder up or a telescoping pole. The self-closing gate provides two additional ladder rungs for safe and easy access to the roof.

Yes. Our roof hatch safety rails come in standard sizes and will retrofit on almost every brand of hatch currently being sold in the marketplace. Additionally, we can manufacture custom sizes to meet your needs.

One of the many things that sets us apart from other rails designs is the simple yet durable design. Our rails consist of only 10 bolts and 4 pieces, and can be installed in under 30 minutes. They are mounted to the drip edge, so no penetration takes place, and the roof warranty remains intact.

The SafePro Automatic Roof Hatch Opener is designed to allow the safest rooftop access available on the market. The function is to keep people from having to take their hands off the ladder to unlock a padlock and to make opening the hatch easier by doing it remotely from the safety of the ground level. Our Automatic Roof Hatch Opener can also be tied into your security system giving it the capability of tracking who is accessing your roof and when.

For standard in-stock items, we will ship within 4 business days. For non-standard (custom) or out-of-stock items, shipment will be 10 business days. The one exception is custom sized roof hatches, which can take up to 6 weeks.

§3209 Wherever guardrail protection is required, the following standards shall be adhered to except that other types and arrangements of guardrail construction will be acceptable where the height, surface and end projection of the top rail complies with the standard specifications and the closure of the vertical area between the top rail and floor, platform, runway, or ramp provides protection at least equivalent to that afforded by a mid-rail.

(a) A standard guardrail shall consist of top rail, midrail or equivalent protection, and posts, and shall have a vertical height within the range of 42 inches to 45 inches from the upper surface of the top rail to the floor, platform, runway, or ramp level. (Note: the permissible tolerance on height dimensions is one inch). The top rail shall be smooth-surfaced throughout the length of the railing. The midrail shall be approximately halfway between the top rail and the floor, platform, runway, or ramp. The ends of the rails shall not overhang the terminal posts, except where such overhang does not constitute a projection hazard. (Title 24, Part 2, Section 2-1716(a)).
