INTAKS® Scaffold & Edge Protection Solutions

On Roof / Underslung

This INTAKS configuration allows roof-edge protection to be installed quickly and efficiently before or after the roof has been laid. The underslung set-up increases the range of options for your project. Suitable for steel and timber purlins.


Multiple adjustments are possible to ensure the installation is fit for purpose:

  • Suitable for new builds or re-roofs.
  • Can be installed before roof is laid or afterwards.
  • Use of ghost handrail post allows continuous edge protection to be in place during laying of roof, without interrupting efficiency of roofers.
  • Up to 3.6m spans between handrail posts.
  • Two or three handrail configurations available.
  • Handrail height is adjustable.
  • Handrail distance from edge of building is adjustable.
  • Lock Pin & R-Clip and Spring Clip mechanisms allow for visual inspection of correct installation.
  • Modular components can be used in other configurations. No need to purchase a completely separate edge protection system.
  • Nominal weight of 3.6kg/m to 5.9kg/linear metre, depending on set-up.
  • Install and dismantle processes are fast, minimising interruption to other trades on site.
Installation process

    The install can be completed quickly, thanks to precision engineering and slotting together of components:

    1. Roof Feet, Standard Arm and Extender assembled on the ground.
    2. Roof Foot and Standard then secured to purlin with Tek screws.
    3. Extender slides into Standard Arm (does not need to be pinned). Other Roof Foot secured to purlin with Tek screws.
    4. Platform Arm Bracket and Handrail Post attached using the tool-less Lock Pin & R-Clip mechanism.
    5. Handrails secured to Handrail Posts using the tool-less Spring Clip mechanism.
    6. Complete final checks and hand over to site manager.
    7. Dismantle process is the reverse to installation.

    This configuration has almost entirely aluminium components, apart from the yellow bracket and Lock Pins/R-Clips.

    For handrails:

    • Handrail Tube (part #HR4 to HR#6)
    • Handrail Joiners/External Sleeve Couplers (part #1165/#SES)
    • Fixed 90° Couplers (part #SFC) and/or Swivel Couplers (part #SSC) – for joining handrails at corners

    For each post:

    • 1 x Handrail Post/Swivel Handrail Post (part #1101/#1102)
    • 1 x Standard Arm (part #1172 to #1177)
    • 1 x Platform Arm Bracket (part #1076)
    • 2 x Roof Feet (part #1200)
