New Crossovers Provide Safe Access Over Rooftop Obstructions

Kee Safety Inc. introduces its Crossover Safe Access Platforms to provide safe, efficient routes for maintenance, construction, and other personnel when accessing rooftops of flat and low-sloped buildings. Engineered to comply with OSHA safety standards, the new multi-purpose Crossovers feature a Kee Walk anti-slip modular walkway and platform system with handrails that enables workers to step over piping, HVAC equipment, and other obstructions as well as traverse changes in rooftop levels. The Crossovers can accommodate standing seam, metal profile, and other roof types, and they install without penetrating the roof membrane, according to Kee Safety.

Steps and platform floors are built using high-grade nylon treads, checker plate, or steel grating. Base feet can be roof-mounted, have fixed feet, or a combination of both. Safety railings are constructed of Kee Lite Aluminum or Kee Klamp Galvanized Steel for strength, durability, and corrosion-resistance. The new Crossovers integrate seamlessly with Kee Safety OSHA-compliant fall protection systems and equipment to deliver a complete rooftop safety solution, the company states.

Each Crossover Safe Access Platform is custom designed based on the specific rooftop application criteria to meet worker access and safety needs. They can be delivered in fully pre-assembled systems or with modular sections, or partially-assembled flat-pack containers for simple, on-site installation, according to the company.

Rooftop Walkway System Features Integrated Safety Railing

Kee Safety Inc. introduces Kee Walk with Guardrail, an OSHA-compliant rooftop walkway system with integrated safety railing. Designed to provide a secure, anti-slip walking surface on all roof types including metal profile and standing seam roofs, Kee Walk with Guardrail accommodates steps, traverses, and sloped roofs with pitches up to 35 degrees, according to the company.

Serving as a “collective fall protection” system by OSHA criteria, Kee Walk with Guardrail helps to eliminate potential fall hazards by presenting a clear demarcation route for personnel accessing the roof. It can be used in conjunction with Kee Safety crossover platforms to provide safe access across roof-mounted pipework, over low-level walls, and to service plant equipment. The corrosion-resistant walkway-railing system is also compatible with other Kee Safety fall protection products to deliver a complete rooftop safety solution, according to the company.

Kee Walk with Guardrail is available with aluminum or nylon modules that feature anti-slip treads. These are supplied in 5-foot and 10-foot pre-assembled sections that are easy to install and do not require onsite fabrication. The guardrail uses Kee Klamp fittings and can be set up as either a single or dual-sided handrail system. The durable, corrosion-resistant system also installs without penetrating the roof. With its modular design, Kee Walk with Guardrail can be customized for layouts of new buildings or retrofitted onto existing structures. The walkway and guardrails combine to enhance worker safety even in wet and windy conditions, noted Kee Safety.
