With December just a few days away, snow is upon us! Now is the time to think about installing guardrails. These devices ensure the safety of occupants of an industrial zone. On high sites, they are even more important to avoid a fall or slip. The risks are greater in winter. Find out why you should install it before the cold sets in. Also learn more about our new guardrail.
What is an industrial guardrail and what is its role?
An industrial guardrail is a safety element. It is implemented in industrial areas to prevent falls and accidents. It is generally installed around walkways, stairs, platforms, mezzanines, roofs, and any area presenting a risk of falling.
These devices are specially designed to cope with the harsh conditions in industrial environments, while providing optimal durability. They are made from robust materials and are subject to rigorous safety standards. All this helps ensure the protection of employees and visitors. The objective is to create a secure environment where workers and visitors can move around in complete peace of mind.
Particularly important protection in winter
As the cold sets in, the ground becomes more slippery because of the ice. Sites located at height are more dangerous for workers and personnel traveling there. Thanks to the guardrails, the risk of falling is greatly reduced.
If you haven’t installed one yet, now is a good time to do so, before the cold weather arrives. This period is perfectly suited. Installation is easier, in the absence of layers of snow and ice.
