The Safety Rail 2000 Architectural Series is a passive fall protection guard rail system that exceeds the OSHA-compliant roof safety rail requirements.  Along with a pleasing architectural style, it has been tested to exceed a 300 lb load requirement (50% more than the 200lb requirement required by OHSA) and has 3 horizontal rails.  Similar to the standard Architectural Series, it also combines the non-penetrating guard rail system with architectural appeal for applications where railing appearance is important.

D300 Safety guard rail

Rail sections are constructed of 1.25” SCH 40 galvanized pipe and galvanized fittings. The rails secured to 96-pound cast iron bases and spaced at maximum distance of 6ft apart.  When the bases are installed in a run with a 90° return on each end, the combined mass and geometry of the installation creates an OSHA compliant barrier for roof edge protection.

The Architectural Series is a roof safety rail system that requires no penetration to the roof surface when installed. Because they’re anchored with weighted baseplates rather than bolted to the roof, Safety Rail 2000 D300 series ballasted guard rails are primarily used as a permanent rail solution.  In the event of the roof needing to be fixed or replaced, the system can be easily disassembled to do the work and reassembled after.

In order to meet OSHA regulations for fall protection guard rail systems, outriggers (returns/counter weights) must be used with Safety Rail 2000 Architectural Series guard rails. Whether the danger side run is 5’ or 1000’ in length, these outriggers must be in place at the beginning and at the end of the run. Outriggers are standard rail kits that are connected at approximately 90° to the danger side run of each end rail section.
