FAQs

They comply with local safety requirements as they meet the load requirements through the use of counterwheighted base plates. Skyline RoofBarrier systems are engineered to meet your safety requirements.

Penetrating the roof and membrane requires you to reseal those holes to ensure there are no water leaks. Especially with a brand new roof membrane, the last thing you want to do is create unnecessary holes. Not to mention, in some applications such as older heritage buildings, drilling into the roof may not be an option. As a result, a non-penetrating system would be the best solution. If you are worried about the weight of the base plates, they apply less pressure per square inch than an adult standing on the roof. This is because our base plates are low profile (¾” thick with a ¾” rubber mat below the baseplate) and wide, spreading the weight across a 2’ x 2’ area.

Depending on the roof material and slope, a non-penetrating guardrail system may not be the best option. For example, a high-sloped roof will not provide a stable platform for the base plates to sit on, nor will it act as a proper counterweight. That being said, the guardrail system can also clip to a standing seam roof with a pressure-fit non-penetrating clamp. Minimizing the need for intrusions.

Skyline guardrails can withstand a 1.5 KN vertical force along with a 1.0 KN horizontal force. This is done through the use of base plates being installed every 10 feet and outriggers every 30 feet, in order to act as counterweights. It is always best to check with your supplier and ensure engineer stamped drawings are provided for your specific layout, as not all guardrails will meet the correct loadings of your location.

No, our non-penetrating guardrails are effective year round, regardless of the weather or climate.
