The Importance of Safety Railings: A Deep Dive with FastClamp Solutions

Safety Railings

In any workplace or public space, safety is paramount. As a business owner, manager, or property owner, it’s your responsibility to ensure that employees, visitors, and the general public are protected from potential hazards. One crucial aspect of maintaining a safe environment is the installation of high-quality safety railings. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the importance of safety railings and explore how FastClamp Solutions can help you create safer, more secure spaces.

The Risks of Inadequate Safety Measures: 

Accidents can happen in any setting, but the likelihood of incidents occurring can be significantly reduced by implementing proper safety measures. Without adequate safety railings, people are at risk of falls, slips, and other injuries that can lead to lost productivity, increased insurance costs, and legal issues. It’s not just about protecting your bottom line; it’s about valuing the well-being of everyone who uses your space.

Why Choose Modular Safety Railings? 

When it comes to safety railings, not all solutions are created equal. Traditional welded railings can be time-consuming to install, difficult to modify, and costly to maintain. That’s where modular safety railings come in. These innovative systems, like those offered by FastClamp, provide a range of benefits:

Quick Installation: Modular railings can be easily assembled on-site, without the need for welding or specialised tools. This means less downtime and a faster return to full operation.

Flexibility: As your space evolves, so too can your safety railings. Modular systems allow for easy reconfiguration and expansion, adapting to your changing needs.

Cost-Effective: With streamlined installation and minimal maintenance requirements, modular railings offer a cost-effective solution for protecting people in your space.

Superior Rooftop Guardrail System for Corrugated Roofs 

FastClamp offers the Kee Guard® roof edge protection safety railing system specifically designed for standing seam and metal profile roofs with slopes up to 45°. This collective fall protection solution keeps workers safe while they work on your roof, eliminating the need for personal protective equipment (PPE) or specialised training.

The Kee Guard® for metal roofs features a base plate with multiple fixing centres, which is fixed directly to the profile sheeting via rivets or non-penetrative two-part clamps. The unique plate design allows the system to be fitted to a wide range of profile sheet centres and provides support for the adjustable vertical standard leg. Horizontal rails are then simply fitted to the open saddle fittings to provide a complete collective fall protection solution that complies with relevant UK, EU, and global safety standards.

Free Standing Roof Edge Protection

For flat roofs with slopes up to 5°, FastClamp’s Defender Roof Edge Protection® system offers a cost-effective, freestanding rooftop safety railing solution. This system utilises recycled PVC weights to support a freestanding counterbalance system that does not penetrate the roof surface, ensuring collective fall protection for all workers who need access to the roof area.

The Defender Roof Edge Protection® system is quick and simple to install, with its modular form allowing flexibility to cope with even the most demanding roof shapes. Two workers without specialised training can install approximately 9 linear meters of the system in just 30 minutes. The system is fully compliant with industry standards such as BS EN 13374 Class A, BS EN 14122, and BS 13700.
