System variants for pitched roof

Installation, cleaning, and repair work on a pitched roof represents a particular challenge. The roof form and the inclination greater than 22 degrees (attention – in Switzerland roofs with an inclination from 10° upwards count as pitched roofs) make these tasks more difficult. If, on top of this, the substructure is wet or even covered with snow, then the  risk of accident or fall  increases greatly. An incorrect or careless movement can result in a devastating fall.
 

In addition to slipping and skidding, breakthroughs are amongst the greatest risks on a pitched roof.

Especially with substructures of fibre-cement panels, fibreboard panels, or wood cement panels, where resistance to breakthrough is not guaranteed, personal safety measures must be implemented. In addition, safe access to the pitched roof must be provided.

 

In order to minimise the risks of a fall, from a fall height of 3 metres,  a  professional and standard-compliant fall protection system  must be installed. For this, INNOTECH® provides innovative solutions which – depending on the application case – can be individually adapted to very differing circumstances.

INNOTECH®: Proven systems for fall protection on a pitched roof

The passable AIO lifeline system and/or the  TAURUS rail system have proven themselves particularly for fall protection on a pitched roof. With the AIO lifeline system,  protection is provided by means of a stainless steel cable, but the TAURUS system uses aluminium rails. Through their  high quality and great versatility, both system are winners, and they can be adapted perfectly to all circumstances on a pitched roof.

In addition to a lifeline or rail system, frequently single anchor points are also used to protect against falls. For example, STA posts can be installed centred on the ridge or on the roof surface. Safety roof hooks, such as the SDH 31 or SDH 32, also provide the necessary protection on a pitched roof. On the one hand, these can be used as  single anchor points for personal protective equipment (PPE), and on the other hand for  attaching a roof ladder.

Personal safety on a pitched roof by means of individual protection solutions

Personal safety on a pitched roof can be provided by means of individual protection exclusively. Here, each user is protected individually from falling. In this case, personal protective equipment is a mandatory requirement in order to appropriately protect installers and cleaning and servicing workers.

 

INNOTECH® provides a sophisticated safety system,  in which all individual components are perfectly matched to each other. This guarantees you maximum safety in all activities which have to be performed on a pitched roof.


Benefits of a fall protection system on a pitched roof

  • Continuous protection during all installation, cleaning, servicing, and repair tasks which require roof access
  • Safe use and danger-free access to the entire roof surface by means of an individually adapted fall protection system
  • Safety roof hooks allow protected access over the roof surface
  • An appropriate safety concept takes effect as soon as the pitched roof is accessed

Challenges: Fall protection on a pitched roof

  • Roof inclination: Because of its inclination, tasks on the roof, such as cleaning, servicing, or repair, are made even more difficult. There is  increased fall risk,  especially at the fall edges.
  • Access to the pitched roof: Even the route to the pitched roof may be dangerous, and this must be taken into account for the fall protection system. If the ascent is made via a  roof hatch  or by means of a  ladder, then these must also be protected, and a safe transition from the ladder to the roof must be made possible.
