Kalzip handrail system

Safety when working on a roof is of uttermost importance.

Even though Kalzip's aluminium standing seam system is maintenance-free, cleaning gutters or general inspection are reasons for gaining access to the roof, in addition to the installation of it.

To avoid or reduce any foreseeable risk to any person working on a roof, Kalzip offers a number of safety accessories including a fall arrest system, walkway and handrail systems.

The ‘freestanding’ Kalzip Versirail handrail is a stylish system that is designed to be installed on Kalzip roofs with inbound pitches ranging from 1.5° to 6.0°, and is particularly suitable as a roof perimeter safety system where the pitch may be as great as 10.0°.  

Tested and certified to EN 13374 – freestanding - this easy fix system’s upstands slot into specially designed hinged footplates which locate into fabricated aluminium base trays that either sit on top of, or fit neatly over the Kalzip roof sheet’s standing seams.

Kalzip Versirail also boasts a variety of upstand styles (straight, inclined and curved) to offer greater levels of safety, improve the aesthetic appearance of the structure by setting the handrail back from the roof eaves to create cleaner sightlines and generally complement the overall design of the building. The Kalzip Versirail handrail system can be used in conjunction with both the Grillage and Suregrip walkway systems to suit individual project requirements.

The ‘fixed’ Kalzip handrail is a cost effective system which is easy to install and is done without penetrating the Kalzip roofing sheets and is achieved by using top hat stanchion bases with pre-attached ‘quick fix’ extruded aluminium seam clips that secretly secure the handrail system directly onto the standing seams.

Tested and certified to BS EN 1991-1-1 and EN 14122-3, this system is designed to maximise structural efficiency whilst meeting a wide range of loading requirements.

This stand alone handrail system is suitable for all cover widths of Kalzip sheets and can be installed on roofs with pitches ranging from 1.5° to 5.0°.
The Kalzip handrail system can be used in conjunction with both the Grillage and Suregrip walkway systems to suit individual project requirements.
