A petrochemical company which has its chemical plant located on Jurong Island.
Strict policies and regulations around Jurong Island require implementing stringent safety measures, and all rooftops should be guarded by a fall protection system to ensure safe and efficient maintenance programmes.
The customer’s roofs need to be maintained from time to time. The company had been using scaffolding to access the roof. Scaffold was an expensive option and did not comply to international safety standards, so the company started looking for a better alternative.
Kee Safety Singapore Pte Ltd, together with a local approved fall protection installer, carried out a full site survey and recommended the installation of KEEGUARD Topfix rooftop guardrails. The customer’s management reviewed the cost of the system vs the cost of scaffolding and decided that KEEGUARD Topfix was the most cost-effective solution, compliant to all international safety standards.
KEEGUARD Topfix is a guardrail solution suitable for use on composite, trapezoidal and standing seam roofs up to 45°. Our collective roof edge protection features a base plate with multiple fixing centres which is fixed directly to the profile sheeting via rivets or non-penetrative two-part clamps. This unique plate design allows the system to be fitted to a wide range of profile sheet centres.
KEEGUARD Topfix has been designed for optimum safety. The system complies fully with work at height regulations, including EN 13374 Class A and OSHA. KEEGUARD Topfix can be powder coated to any RAL colour and allows extremely fast installation, which does not require any threading or bolting.
