Fixfast guard rail systems are designed to provide collective edge protection around the perimeter of a flat roof for safe working at height. They comply with the relevant BS EN safety standards for Guard rails.
Fixfast offers two Guard rail safety systems. EdgePro is a freestanding weighted Guard rail, which means there’s no need to penetrate the roof. Sentry is a fixed Guard rail system that is mechanically fastened to the roof using rivets or self-drilling fasteners.
Both systems are suitable for use with KATT ladders and Fixfast Walkway to create a complete safe access system for rooftop maintenance.

EdgePro – freestanding weighted Guard Rail
EdgePro is a high-quality freestanding Guard rail system. It is manufactured from corrosion-resistant aluminium and is secured with 25kg counter-weights, making it quick and easy to install. As a result, it doesn’t need fixing into the roof, so there are no issues with weatherproofing.
EdgePro can be installed with a choice of upright angles and is compliant with BS EN13374 class A for a maximum 10-degree roof pitch.
Sentry – permanent fixed Guard Rail
Sentry is a best-in-class permanent Guard rail system. It is manufactured from corrosion-resistant aluminium and is secured into the roof structure with Fixfast rivets or self-drilling fasteners. It is quick and easy to install, with no need to lift counterweights to roof level.
Each Sentry Guard rail system is tailored to meet your exact requirements – from the swivel joints to the base design, it is fully adjustable to suit any location and roof design, where the pitch is under 10 degrees.
Sentry is compliant with BS EN ISO 14122:3:2016.
