Safety Products

The BILCO Roof Edge Protection system provides a permanent or temporary guardrail without requiring mechanical attachment to the roof. Our free-standing system overcomes the problems associated with permanent fixings that can result in damage to the roof membrane. This modular system is easy to install and is a fully compliant permanent solution.

Simple, modular, aesthetically pleasing, Roof Edge Protection is fully compliant with the Work at Height Regulations (2005) that requires handrails to be provided to prevent falls.
