Roofing Safely During a Solar Eclipse with Kee Guard Foldable Safety Guardrail

The Niagara Parks Commission anticipated a surge in visitors due to their prime location for viewing the eclipse. To ensure visitor safety during this significant event, the Commission sought a reliable safety solution for their rooftop areas.

The Solution

While rooftop railings are a simple and ideal way to provide a safe environment for accessing roofs, at the same time, railings around the top of a roof may detract from the look of a building. Our folding version of the modular Kee Guard is a safe and effective guardrail solution for roofs where aesthetics are a concern. Kee Guard foldable safety guardrail is the ideal solution when collective protection is required without having permanently visible railings.

Kee Guard foldable safety guardrail is a folding handrail system designed to preserve the aesthetics of a building. It utilizes a hinged version of the standard Kee Guard base fitting, allowing the guardrail to be easily lifted into place during work and then quickly folded back down when finished. A simple locking pin is all that needs to be removed from the fitting to allow it to pivot.

The Kee Guard system was installed more than 6’ away from the edge, marking the areas that can be accessed and creating a barrier to prevent people from getting near the edge. In other words, the railing system is not only keeping people away from the edge but also protecting them.
