Telecommunications Facility Upgrades Capacity Creating a Crowded Rooftop

Roger's Toronto Switch Facility

The founder of Rogers, Ted Rogers, purchased his first radio station, CHFI, in 1960. They have grown over the years to becoming a leading technology and media company that strives to provide the very best in wireless, residential, sports, and media. With a highly skilled and diversified workforce of approximately 25,300 employees, Rogers makes more possible every day, proudly connecting their customers to a world of possibilities and the moments that matter most in their lives.

Upgraded Cooling System

Rogers was planning to upgrade to their existing Wireline Switch facility in Toronto. With the facility upgrade requiring various rooftop units (cooling systems, ducts, and electrical distribution systems) to be replaced and located closer to the edge of the roof, the contractor and project engineer needed a rooftop safety compliance partner. With the new placement of the rooftop cooling units, a safety solution was required to ensure safe passage on the roof during routine maintenance.

Galvanized steel Safety Rail System

To ensure compliance and eliminate any hazard while maintaining the rooftop HVAC units, our team of height safety experts recommended a 17’ x 22’ x 4’ (adjustable corner) galvanized steel guardrail system. The RoofBarrier 5001 Series is a non-penetrating permanent guardrail system that meets the most stringent of rooftop safety regulations. With the galvanized steel safety rail system not requiring any roof penetration, the solution was easy to incorporate into the current building envelope. Our guardrail systems are also shipped in prefabricated modular sections, creating an efficient and quick installation with no on-site welding, further reducing on-site labor requirements and installation costs.
