FAQs

A rooftop crossover system is ideal for safe access across parapets, changes in roof elevation, ductwork, and other obstacles found on the roof.

Crossover bridges act like a dedicated walkway or catwalk, enabling safe access to walk over obstacles. They include guardrails and a perforated tread to ensure maximum safety while working at heights.

Various height safety requirements govern how a crossover bridge should be manufactured and designed and can vary from province to province. For example, the height of the guardrail may need to be at a specified height, along with the width of the platform. Please contact your height safety partner to learn about the requirements in your region.

Yes, the Skyline Group crossover bridges can be customized to meet the needs of any roof layout.

In many cases, they can be visually inspected, like you would a ladder, although an engineering review may be needed for more custom designs that integrate a platform to extend the roof of the building. We recommend always contacting the manufacturer and installer concerning annual or installation-based inspections.

Like any safety solution on your rooftop, a routine inspection is required to ensure the product’s integrity. This often occurs after and before the winter months.

Provincial regulations are in place that govern safety standards. The laws and regulations are focused on creating a safe environment while working at heights and offer guidance on what can be used and how. That being said, if an injury occurs, the building owner and/or site lead can be criminally held liable per the Westray Law (Bill C-45).

Your best practice when actively protecting your roof workers with a crossover bridge is to ensure the workers know it is available and that it is required to be used. There are many occasions where we see employees taking a shortcut and stepping over a vent with tools in their hands because it is quicker than walking to and over the crossover. The crossover is intended to ensure you have a safe and dedicated path to essential areas of the rooftop, and it is important that everyone uses the approved pathways.

Due to the nature of the solution, they can be manufactured in various configurations. You can customize them to suit any roof layout. Whether you are looking to gain access to the rooftop from the ground or looking to simply close a gap between two roof elevations.

Yes, crossover bridges can be installed on any rooftop layout.
