SG Series: Fall Protection Guardrail System for Metal Roof Systems

A non-penetrating guard rail system for metal seam roofs.

The SG (SeamGrabber) Series is a passive fall protection guardrail system that provides an OSHA-compliant roof safety rail with a pleasing architectural style. It combines the non-penetrating guardrail system with architectural appeal for metal seam roofs.

Metal Roof Safety Guard RailRail sections are constructed of 1.25” SCH 40 galvanized pipe. The rails secure to base plates, allowing the rails to be configured in infinite positions.

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.
