Permanent Guardrail

Need roof guardrail? The USM Guardrail system provides permanent, full-perimeter fall protection. The unique design allows 100% water-tight installation under standard roofing and sheet metal details including coping caps, drip edges, gravel stops and even inside most commercial gutters without penetrating the roof membrane. Our “Zero Penetration” attachment under standard perimeter edge details allows full access to the entire roof surface, wall flashings and sheet metal. The USM Guardrail system can be installed prior to roof construction and can be left in place during complete roof replacement. Powder coated steel colors available to match Kynar® sheet metal or other building components and RAL colors. USM Guardrail meets and exceeds OSHA Standards and International Building Codes (ICC).  

The unique mounting and upright design allows our guardrail system to remain in place whether it’s a complete re-roof project, edge metal replacement, equipment maintenance, facility lighting or security camera work, our guardrail remains in place providing full-perimeter fall protection. Leading Edge Safety’s patent pending design allows for guardrail installation under most coping cap, drip edges, gravel stop and inside gutter systems. Installation of the permanent guardrails can typically be installed using the existing coping cap metal, eliminating the added cost of new metal. USM-IBC Guardrail eliminates the need for tie-off points and the expensive associated maintenance and training.
