Today’s industrial roofs are sophisticated systems that often house critical building components. These sophisticated roofing systems must be accessible to workers, but providing that access in a safe way can be a challenge.
At Design Components, Inc., in Kansas City, MO, we specialize in crafting high-quality roof access walkways. A metal building roof walkway system provides a stable work area for maintenance professionals while extending the life of the roof itself.
As a rooftop system company, we create roof walkways that can include safety measures such as:
- Non-slip grating
- Valley gutter walkway
- Leveled walkway
- Roof Curbs
- Smoke vents
- Wall fans
- Roof fans
- Pipe Flashings
- Gravity vents
- Stepped walkway
- And more
The Metalwalk® rooftop walkway and safety handrail systems are crafted for maximum design flexibility. The system, used in commercial and industrial projects, offers non-skid grating in standard 12-inch wide by 12-feet long interlocking planks, making design and installation of your commercial rooftop walkway system a breeze. Metalwalk® systems also:
- Exceed OSHA and IBC 2012 code requirements
- Do not penetrate SSR panels
- Are available in custom paint colors
- Offer an optional 4-inch toeboard non-skid surface
At Design Components, Inc., in Kansas City, MO, we’re committed to keeping our customers happy, but our ultimate goal is keeping rooftop workers safe. According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) statistics, there were 899 contract worker deaths in 2014. Of those, 359 were due to falls—one of the most common causes of worker death. By preventing falls from overhead platforms, like metal roofs, we can help save lives. Key components to fall prevention include providing guardrails and toeboards like our Metalwalk® systems.
