Edge protection fencing is specifically designed to surround voids, edges, open pits and lift wells during the construction process.
A type of temporary fence panel, edge protection fencing is designed to conserve as much floor space as possible with its low profile design. It can be fixed in place temporarily whilst construction is taking place, protecting workers from falls and also protecting anyone below from dropped tools or equipment.
Edge protection barriers for multi deck construction projects
Working at heights is a high risk activity and a leading cause of death and serious injury.
This high risk environment makes it critical to install fall prevention systems such as guard railings, edge barriers and scaffolding on every project, along with taking a range of other precautions to keep your team safe.
The best option of course is simply to avoid working at height altogether, but often on large construction projects that just isn’t possible: if it’s up off the ground you’re going to need an edge protection fence to ensure your height safety compliance is up to scratch.
If you are working on civil or infrastructure projects that feature multi storey construction such as car parks, train stations, bridges, community buildings or commercial projects, edge fencing is one way to create a physical barrier that helps to prevent falls from height.
