Roof railings

The universally usable collective protection with adaptable colours



The BARRIER-VARIO-SYSTEM is a version of the BARRIER guardrail system which is held by superimposed load and is simple to install.



The BARRIER-ATTIKA SYSTEM is a version of the BARRIER guardrail system which is permanently installed on various substructures (e.g. parapet, steel constructions, etc.).



In recent years green roofs have become increasingly popular. With the BARRIER- FLEECE-SYSTEM, INNOTECH ensures optimum edge protection on flat roofs.



On a roof, skylights represent a source of danger which is easy to overlook. BARRIER-SKYLIGHT is a superimposed load system and is individually adjustable. For an area up to 1.9 x 1.9 m, the same system parts are used as for VARIO.



The purpose of the BARRIER-FLEECE-SYSTEM is to create a specified route, in order to evacuate people safely in the event of an emergency. Depending on the construction circumstances, INNOTECH provides 2 superimposed load ESCAPE ROUTES variants.



The BARRIER ASCENT LADDER SYSTEM secures the side exit area of ascent ladders. It is connected to the structure of a customer’s existing ascent ladder, and secures the area of transfer from the ladder to the roof surface (1.5 m to left and right is required by standard).


Fall protection on a flat roof using railings

Cleaning, servicing, and maintenance tasks required on flat roofs mean that the roof surface is accessed regularly. In addition, flat roofs are increasingly becoming usable real estate for solar or photovoltaic systems, or for urban farming. People present in this working area find themselves in a fall-risk zone. Appropriate protection of all people who access the roof surface is therefore essential. We have the solution which protects against falls from flat roofs in areas which are not publicly accessible.


Guardrail system with weights as superimposed load

The BARRIER-VARIO guardrail system is used wherever the fall edges of a flat roof up to a maximum pitch of 10° must be protected. The guardrail held in place by superimposed concrete weights creates a barrier around the fall-risk area, and thus ...


Guardrail system installed on parapet

The BARRIER PARAPET guardrail system is suitable only for combination with an existing parapet construction. Once the system has been attached to the parapet construction, it provides optimum fall protection for all persons located on the roof. ...


Guardrail system with green roof as superimposed load

The BARRIER FLEECE guardrail system is used wherever the fall edges of flat roofs up to 10° inclination must be protected. It creates a barrier to the fall edge, and so all persons located on the roof can move about in safety. This system is ...


Guardrail system around skylights/strip lights

The BARRIER SKYLIGHT guardrail system is used wherever skylights must be protected on roofs of up to 10° inclination. Regardless of the size of the skylight, the superimposed load system provides optimum fall protection, and thereby neutralises ...


Guardrail system for escape routes

The BARRIER ESCAPE ROUTE guardrail system is used wherever a prescribed route out of the danger zone has to be created so that persons can leave it safely. Regardless whether it is a case of straight runs, or whether corner layouts must be ...


Guardrail system for machinery

The BARRIER MACHINE SAFEGUARDING guardrail system is used wherever fall edges on machinery or in an industrial environment have to be secured. The guardrail system is so flexible that it is possible to individually solve the various requirements ...


Enclosure of danger areas

Guardrail system for ladder exits

The BARRIER ASCENT LADDER guardrail system is used wherever it is necessary to secure the exit area of an ascent ladder, where a fall edge is present after exiting onto the roof surface. Depending on the substructure (parapet) present and ...

Collective protection from INNOTECH®: Safety on a flat roof

From a fall height of 3 metres and upwards, compliant and professional fall prevention protection is a mandatory legal requirement. However, even from a low height, falls can result in life-threatening injuries. Every flat roof should therefore be equipped with an appropriate safety system which fulfils the requirements.

Because of the low roof inclination (up to a maximum of 20 degrees) and habits of use, railings are often chosen for ensuring personal safety on a flat roof. This represents a collective protection measure: All persons who access the roof are protected equally. Personal protective equipment (PPE), as used for fall protection on a pitched roof, is unnecessary.

Benefits of railings on a flat roof

  • Professional protection along fall edges and around skylights and strip lights
  • No need for personal protective equipment (PPE), because railings represent a collective protection measure: The railings form a barrier between the fall edge and the persons on the roof.
  • Retrofitting option: Railings can also be installed on existing buildings. For this, various installation options are available (permanent installation, or held by superimposed load using concrete weights). Depending on the system variant, there is a choice between inclinations of 90 and 75 degrees.


Challenges on a flat roof

  • Fall edge: There is an increased risk of falling at the edge. People located in this area can be protected appropriately by using railings.

  • Skylights and light strips: These provide light to the interior of buildings, but simultaneously represent a great risk to people who access the roof, or perform servicing or maintenance tasks on a flat roof. Because skylights and light strips are made of plastic, and are not secure against perforation and fall-through, appropriate protection is necessary.

  • Weather: Snow and rain increase the risk that the people on the roof will slip. It is therefore particularly important to prevent a fall at the edge. Railings reliably eliminate this risk for all persons who find themselves on a roof.
