Leading Edge Safety design allows roof safety railing installation under the coping cap, drip edge, gravel stop and even inside most gutter systems. Coping cap sheet metal can be removed during re-roofing without removal of the safety rail system. Unique bracket design allows retrofit installation under an existing coping cap sheet metal, eliminating the cost of new coping cap. Leading Edge Safety uprights are designed to keep workers away from the leading edge while still allowing full access to the roof surface.
Leading Edge Safety designs safety railing products that insure OSHA compliance and peace of mind for employees, managers, contractors and building owners that employees and workers are safe while inspecting or working on the roof. Leading Edge Safety safety guardrails eliminate the need for tie-off points and expensive safety equipment.
