  • Perimeter platform can be easily added to permit easy gutter replacement.
  • Adjustable to easily cope with varying soffit depths and gutter profiles.
  • Can be used on roof pitches of up to 35 degrees.
  • Ability to advance guardrail improves for safer and quicker install and dismantle.
  • Up to 3.6m spans between handrail posts.
  • Handrail height is adjustable.
  • Uprights fold for easy carrying and efficient transport from job-to-job.
  • Lock Pin & R-Clip and Spring Clip mechanisms allow for visual inspection of correct installation.
  • Modular components may be re-used in other configurations: no need to purchase a completely separate edge protection system.
  • Unique, award-winning, Apex Post solution for safely installing handrails on gables.
Installation process

The install process is straightforward and easy to repeat:

  1. Place out Soleboards and Screwjacks at planned intervals where Standards are to be installed.
  2. Configure Extenders, Standards, Handrail Posts, Platform Arm Bracket, Platform Brace Bracket and Wall Foot into one unit using the tool-less Lock Pin & R-Clip mechanism.
  3. Adjust position of Wall Foot so when lifted into place it will have contact with structural members of the soffit.
  4. Slide configured Standard over the Screwjack and pivot upwards so the Wall Foot (covered with a strip of carpet or butynol) sits underneath the structural member of the soffit.
  5. Tighten Screwjack until a positive connection with the soffit is achieved.
  6. Install Handrails using advance guardrail method and secure to Handrail Posts using the tool-less Spring Clip mechanism.
  7. Put an access platform in place.
  8. Complete final checks and hand over to site manager.
  9. Dismantle process is the reverse to installation.

Components are sturdy, robust, quickly assembled, and can be used with other configurations.
