WINGUARD SKYLIGHT FALL PROTECTION

Why Guard Your Existing Skylights?

  • Workers can be killed or seriously injured from a fall
  • OSHA regulates skylights to be protected
  • OSHA can hold you personally responsible for willfully leaving skylights unprotected
  • The liability from a single incident could cost millions of dollars to defend in court

We have developed two styles of after-market fall protection devices to meet the above OSHA Regulations: Mesh and Guardrail. These devices have been approved by both Carlisle Syntec, Inc. and Sarnafil, Inc.

  • Both systems do not penetrate the roof or skylight curb membranes thereby maintaining the integrity of the roof warranty.
  • Both systems are easy to install requiring only a crescent wrench and allen wrench

MESH STYLE FALL PROTECTION FOR DOME SKYLIGHTS

The WinGuard mesh style skylight fall protection devices are an economical way of protecting your dome, corrugated, or standing seam skylights. Mesh fall protection are manufactured from 4 gauge, 4 inch square, hot dipped galvanized welded wire. For dome-style wire mesh, the pre-rolled wire screen is attached to the WinGuard aluminum extrusion side rail and the assembled system is clamped to the skylight with 1/2 inch steel all-thread. The only tools required for assembly is a 5/8 inch socket wrench. Roof top assembly time is less than 20 minutes each.
