Roof Edge Protection and Crossovers Provide Fall Protection - Case Study

Kee Safety's roof edge protection and bespoke crossovers have been installed on the roof of the Oslo Kongressenter building in Norway to provide a first-class fall protection solution for maintenance and inspection teams accessing the rooftop.

Project Details

Located in the heart of Oslo in Norway, Oslo Kongressenter is a state-of-the-art conference centre. The Congress Centre hosts nearly 1,000 events every year, ranging from smaller meetings and major conferences to banquets and concerts.

With maintenance teams regularly accessing the roof to carry out work on the building services equipment, the client required a complete roof edge protection and safe access solution. Kee Safety partnered with our long-standing Norwegian distributor to provide technical assistance by carrying out a full site survey, as well as making layout plans and detailed technical drawings, which were used in the presentation to the end user.

Due to the client specifying that no holes should penetrate the watertight membrane on the roof of this iconic building, KEEGUARD free-standing roof edge protection and KEE WALK Step-Overs were the chosen Kee Safety’s solutions. 380 linear meters of KEEGUARD Standard and KEEGUARD Premium systems were installed along all sides and roof levels, while KEE WALK Step-Over platforms were fitted to provide a safe means of access over pipework and other equipment.

KEEGUARD Free-Standing Roof Edge Protection

KEEGUARD roof top guardrails are compatible with a range of roof membranes, including concrete, asphalt, PVC membrane, metal and felt. The system offers a free-standing roof edge protection capable of keeping workers on the roof safe without endangering the roof membrane itself. It does not penetrate the roof surface and can be used on flat roofs up to 10° slope. Employing a proven counterweight system, KEEGUARD combines a non-slip secure base with galvanised fittings and tube arranged in a modular configuration. Fully modular and versatile enough to adapt to most roof edge profiles and level changes, sections can be easily taken down and re-erected as necessary.

Designed for optimum safety, the complete KEEGUARD roof edge protection system complies fully with EN14122, EN13374 and OSHA, and even allows for an integral kickboard fixing to further save time and cost on site. The recycled PVC base weights used with KEEGUARD bring a number of advantages, particularly making installation quicker and easier, thus saving time and money. Made from 100% recycled material, they provide an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional weights.

Customised Roof Crossovers

KEE WALK Crossovers are modular systems that can accommodate changes in roof levels and can fit over pipework or equipment to offer a safe, anti-slip, level walking surface onto and across roofs. With adjustable step sections, and non-penetrative fixing options, the step-overs have the inherent flexibility to not only protect those accessing the roof, but to also protect the roof sheet from unnecessary foot traffic and potential damage by providing a clearly defined access path. There is the ability to meet virtually any design requirement, with the end result always being a safe, secure and compliant access platform.

KEE WALK Step-Overs are constructed using KEE KLAMP tube fittings. Each fitting incorporates an internal set screw to lock the respective fitting safely and securely onto the tube to create a strong, stable and safe structure. This method eliminates the need for time-consuming welding or specialist skills or tools, saving contractors both time and money on site. The KEE WALK Step-Over gaurdrails have been designed in accordance to EN 14122-2/3:2016 for assured safe operation with the KEE WALK being compliant to EN 516 Class 1-C.
