LANDING AT HIGH AND ROOF ACCESS WITH SVELT SCAFFOLDINGS
What is the landing at high, the roof access and when is it possible to do it with our scaffoldings
IS IT POSSIBLE TO USE THE SCAFFOLD AS A ROOF ACCE SYSTEM?
If there is no other way to access it, yes!
The scaffolding must be produced and certified in compliance with the local standards.
It must have locked wheels (with brakes) and must be anchored to the facade every 2 floors
We remind you that the European standard UNIEN1004 2019 explicitly prohibits to use the scaffolding for disembarking and for roof access.
For this reason, the only law applicable is the local standard of every country if these standards allow the roof access with scaffoldings.
Many of our professional scaffolding are designed to allow the operator to land on another surface. This use is foreseen in the use and maintenance manuals which describe everything that must be done for the safety of the operator.
- Maximum distance between the landing point on the roof and the platform surface must be less than or equal to 200 mm
- Maximum height between the landing point on the roof and the platform surface must be less than or equal to 150 mm
- The point of disembarkation of the scaffolding must be free from obstacles (therefore only at the point of disembarkation the crossbars, crossbeams, parapets and toeboards must be removed).
- For each model, check from the user manual whether any components must be added to maintain the overall rigidity of the protective railing.
- It is not mandatory to protect the landing point with a gate
