To provide optimal safety to those working at height, Kee Safety, a global supplier of fall protection equipment, has launched KEEGUARD Ladder Kit, a permanently fixed guardrail system that is used in conjunction with safety ladders and self-closing gates.
Self-closing spring loaded safety gates and guardrail kit for ladder access points from Kee Safety provide simple compliant safe access solutions to open voids on the ground floor and when working at height. These simple access solutions comply with EN 14122 Part 3 and Part 4.
When a roof is accessed by either a fixed or cat ladder, you must ensure that people are protected when stepping onto the roof. The EN 14122-4 requires that “to prevent falling through the access opening at arrival areas the opening shall be provided with a gate”.
