A Custom Rooftop Walkway That Meets Your Rooftop Needs
Our team of fall protection engineers was recently contacted by a prominent hospital in Watertown, NY; a returning customer we previously worked with on a Medical Support project. The customer was looking for a rooftop walkway system that would provide fall protection while also giving them access to their HVAC system. Because the unit was elevated off of the ground, OSHA standards required a fall protection system to be installed in order for maintenance works to safely access the door of the HVAC system. Our head project manager traveled to the job site, took field measurements, and our design team hit the ground running on creating a rooftop walkway that would solve all of their problems.
From Concept to Completion
Constructed from SIKLA, Safety Grating and Unistrut parts, our team was able to design a rooftop walkway that was elevated high enough off the ground to access the HVAC system door while also providing fall protection to whoever was using the platform. The rooftop walkway featured a custom staircase to reach the desired elevation and a 42″ railing surrounding the entire walkway system to keep maintenance workers safe and stable. The rooftop walkway was custom designed by our team of engineers, approved by the customer, and manufactured in our warehouse. The pieces were cut to the exact lengths and shipped straight to job site.
Modular Construction Means No Cutting or Welding
Our rooftop walkway system arrived on the job site ready to be installed by our team. The individual, lightweight pieces were easily carried up the stairs to the roof and quickly assembled around the HVAC system. No heavy machinery or large cranes were needed to hoist big, bulky, prefabricated systems into place. There was also no need for cutting or welding because our rooftop walkway went together with a simple wrench.
The job was a success for everyone involved including our design team, the installation team and most importantly, our customer. We were able to come in under budget and we were able to have the entire rooftop walkway installed before the deadline.
