Roof Fall Protection Railing

Keep Your Roof Top Workers Safe

Our Roof Rail Fall Protection Railing meets OSHA fall protection load requirement standards and is fabricated to protect workers and prevent accidents.

With no trip hazards and a bright appearance, this product is your solution to your roof-top safety concerns.

Available in Steel Pipe and Plastic Handrail, Aluminum Handrail, or Welded Steel Handrail, Ideal Shield’s roof rail is a modular system and is manufactured for easy installation.

The product ships fully assembled with no welding required significantly reducing installation costs. Our handrail is weather resistant and will not fade, chip, or peel.

Multiple base plate options are available, including standard with handles or double-stacked, all of which are non-penetrating base plates. Rubber roof pads are also available.

Painting is the standard finish but all base plate options can be galvanized upon request to make it completely weather resistant.

Looking to customize it a bit? Make sure to ask about our custom gate options to fit your project needs.

What our customers are saying

I have been truly impressed with the covers we bought from you so many years ago. They have been exposed to direct sunlight for years and have not faded one bit after all this time! Kudos!

Mark C. - UBT

“First and foremost, we have loved the sign bases. They have gone through the various states of weather that Minnesota has to offer and they are withstanding the weather and doing a great job for us. At this time, we have all of our needs, however, after the Super Bowl and when we head into our spring events we could be looking to purchasing additional signs. ” 

Representative from US Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings & Super Bowl 52
