Why do you need Kee Cover Skylight Screens?

Four Formats

Kee Cover is available in four formats for different types of skylights. Flat screens are available to cover roof lights on corrugated roofs. For domed skylights, there are both penetrating and non-penetrating options. Long screens are available for standing seam roofs with integrated skylights.

Smart Design

Our fall protection skylight screen offering has been designed to protect people and preserve your roof. Non-penetrating options are available in most roof types. The design helps prevent leaks.

OSHA Compliance

Skylight screens have been designed to exceed the standards of both 29 CFR 1926.501(b)(4) and 29 CFR 1910.28(b)(3)(i). In addition to this, Kee Cover can be ordered to meet the Cal-OSHA requirements.

Key Features

Durable

All components and mesh panels are hot-dip galvanized or stainless steel for enhanced durability.

Easily Installed

Each screen can usually be installed in a matter of minutes. Speed on-site keeps costs down.

Multiple Skylight Styles

Kee Cover® has been designed to work on a wide variety of skylight styles.

Light Gets Through

The mesh panels don’t block out light, meaning the building will stay illuminated.

The Most Dangerous Hazard

Many people incorrectly assume that the most dangerous fall hazard is the edge of the roof.  While very dangerous, people instinctively know to stay away from the edge.  Skylights are more dangerous because they are often in the walking path of the people on the roof and many do not see them as a danger.  Many skylights are fragile and could not support the weight of a falling person.  Many fatalities happen when people fall THROUGH the roof, not necessarily over the edge.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • What is the widest skylight I can protect using a skylight screen?
      For domed skylights the maximum width is 70". On corrugate metal roofs the standard width is 36" and for standing seam the width is 24". On metal roofs, however, custom widths can be ordered.
    • I believe that my skylight is fall protection rated, how can I be sure?
      Most skylights have a “Danger Risk of Fall” warning attached to the rail. The absence of this warning does not mean your skylight is fall protection rated. Most skylights suffer from UV degradation over time and will not withstand a fall. If in doubt, call your skylight manufacturer and request fall protection ratings in writing.
    • I have bars on the inside of my skylight, are these fall protection?
      The bars welded inside of a skylight are commonly known as “burglar bars” and are designed to keep thieves out of your facility, not to protect from the impact of a fall. Furthermore, these bars do not protect workers or equipment below the opening from being struck by shards of the broken dome or potential biological contaminants should an impact occur. Kee Safety does not recommend using burglar bars as fall protection.
    • Do I need to protect every skylight on my roof?
      In simple terms, yes. In 1910.28(b)(3)(i) OSHA states that employees must be protected from any hole 4' or higher above a lower level. However, we recommend partnering with a Kee Safety Expert to help prioritize the fall hazards on your roof using a risk-assessment based approach.
    • Does the Kee Safety Skylight Screen penetrate the curb of my domed skylight?
      The STS style skylight screen uses patented tension technology to clamp around the curb of your skylight without the use of penetrating tek-screws.
