Overview: BlueWater Mfg., Inc. is an industry leader for innovate products and solutions for work place safety. We specialize in solving fall protection issues using a passive fall protection guardrail system as opposed to active systems (i.e. lifelines, etc.). The Safety Rail 2000 Guard Rail System accomplishes just that. New roofs are costing building owners 6 to 7 figures and this non-penetrating guardrail system ensures workers are protected without penetrating the roof. There are no potential leak problems down the road when you maintain the roof's integrity. Whether you are looking for a solution for fall protection, barrier protection or handrails, our portable guardrail system can not be matched in versatility and speed of installation.
The standing seam roof fall protection guardrail is BlueWater Mfg's newest fall protection solution for Standing Seam Metal Roofs. The SG Base Plate can be incorporated with our Architectural Series Guardrail, SafetyRail 2000 or the PermaLine Warning Line System. This fall protection system is designed for each standing seam roof application and provides mandated worker protection for ladder egress/ingress and roof edge fall protection.
The Galvanized Base Plate is manufactured to fit various types of standing seam roofs. The plate is fastened to the standing seams by the appropriate S-5 Clamps. Use the SG Base Plate and selected guardrail system to protect workers at mechanicals, ladder areas, roof hatches or create a full perimeter around the rooftop. All projects receive a CAD layout for simple installation.
SafetyRail 2000 Architectural Series combines our non-penetrating guardrail system with an architectural
appeal for those applications where appearance of the railing is important. The SafetyRail 2000 Architectural
Series has a pleasing sightline and can enhance the overall appearance of your building while maintaining a
fall protection barrier around the roof edge that meets OSHA Regulations. Since the Architectural Series utilizes
the same patented, non-penetrating base as the SafetyRail 2000, your roof system will maintain its integrity
and not be compromised by having to penetrate the roof surface for installation.
Companies are using SafetyRail 2000 for: Fall Protection, Temporary Fall Protection, Roof Edge Protection, Roof Hatches, Skylights, Hazard Barriers, Warehouse Dock Doors, Warehouse Traffic Lanes, Cell Workstations, Construction Dig Sites, Dock Platforms, New Building Construction, Drive-In Truck Pits, Rail Car Platforms, Mezzanines, Break Areas, Assembly Areas, Conveyors and many more.
SafetyRail 2000 has been tested by a nationally known engineering firm and found to be in accordance with OSHA regulations. These regulations are in fall protection for guardrail; sections 1910.23 and sections 1926.500 - 1926.503.
The Stealth Rail is a collapsible portable guard rail and safety rail system. The most versatile guard rails in the industry and they exceed OSHA regulations. The Stealth Rail is a collapsible guard rail section for the SafetyRail 2000 Guardrail System. Its one-way pivot assembly allows the guardrail to fold on to a surface and then not exceeding a vertical plane when in the upright position. A detent pin on each pivot assembly locks the safety guard rail in the upright position. Stealth Rail guardrails require no penetrations in substrates for installation. The system exceeds OSHA (Standards - 29 CFR) 1926.501 and 1926.502.
When the system is in its folded position, there are clean sightlines from ground level and the building's architectural integrity is preserved. If you are concerned with aesthetics, the StealthRail is your solution!!
The Perma-Line was designed for permanent placement of a Warning Line System for roof edge fall protection. With this innovative system, you will no longer have to make monthly trips to your rooftop to replace torn or worn out plastic flagging. In addition, you will no longer have to inventory the flagging for future replacements. Once in place, the Perma-Line remains intact until you want to move it. Best of all, it's a non-penetrating system. The Perma-Line (Patent Pending) is the only permanent Warning Line System in the market place. It is not a motion stopping devise. It is a highly visible warning barrier. It exceeds OSHA regulations for warning line systems. Please call us for more details. OSHA has had some recent interpretations on warning line systems. Please visit our OSHA web page for important links regarding the use of warning line systems.
The 'Patent Pending' ParaRail is a non-penetrating, self-supporting system that allows workers full access to a leading edge on a flat roof or the roof's parapet. ParaRail provides fall protection for a variety of tasks including maintenance for security cameras, antennas, lights, drain cleaning and hoisting of tools and materials. The new system exceeds OSHA Regulations for guardrail (29 CFR 1910.23 and 1926.502).
Our Roof Hatch/Skylight Systems exceeds OSHA Std. 29 CFR 1910.23 and 1910.27. It is the only product available in the market with a gate assembly that meets the same OSHA regulations and requires no drilling into any surface for installation. The Roof Hatch/Skylight Systems set up in minutes and are easily dismantled for roof repair. Sized gates enable the Roof Hatch System to be located within 6 inches of the open roof hatch.
We can configure or custom manufacture to any size hatch. Please contact us for more information.
The Grab Bar allows for easy egress and ingress of roof hatches and floor hatches. Install the Grab Bars as an option to the Fall Protection Hatch Kits and make it easier and safer for workers.
