Can I use the guardrail system on shingled roofs?
Yes, your guardrail system was specifically designed with this thought in mind. We have designed special roofing feet that enable workers to install the rails underneath shingles so that they do not damage the roof. The nails used to install the rails are nailed down after use and the shingles cover them from view.
How durable are the guardrails?
Your guardrail system is extremely durable. It is made of rugged 12 gauge steel and fully welded at all connections to provide you with years of durable use. Your system also has powder coat paint which is extremely durable against corrosion and inclement weather. The powder coat paint is actually baked onto your guardrail system providing complete coverage. It is also safer for the environment.
What if I have problems assembling the guardrails?
The guardrails were designed for ease of assembly. The fact that they are easy to assemble and install allows you and your workers to focus more on the job at hand. Each guardrail box comes complete with an instruction manual. These instructions provide not only worded instructions but also diagrams of your guardrails for you to visually see how they are assembled and attached to the roof or flat surfaces. Each box of accessories also come with an instruction manual to show how the accessories work hand in hand with your new guardrail system.
