SafetyRail 2000 System (SR2K) - BLUEWATER image

SafetyRail 2000 System (SR2K) - BLUEWATER -

The SafetyRail 2000 (SR2K) is a non-penetrating, passive fall protection system for workplace safety in rooftop or ground level applications. Used as a portable or permanent solution, the SafetyRail 2000 System's unique design eliminates the cost and danger of potential trip hazards created by intermediate counterweights used in other guardrail systems. When the 96-pound cast iron bases are installed in a run with a 90-degree return on each end, the combined mass and the geometry of the installation creates an OSHA-compliant barrier for roof edge protection.

SafetyRail 2000 Guardrail  - BLUEWATER image

SafetyRail 2000 Guardrail - BLUEWATER

The SafetyRail 2000 Guardrail is an OSHA Fall Protection guardrail. OSHA guardrails and roof railings ensure OSHA Compliance using a passive fall protection system. The SafetyRail 2000 Guardrail is part of BlueWater Manufacturing's SR2K system, a non-penetrating, passive fall protection system for workplace safety in rooftop or ground level applications. Used as a portable or permanent solution, the SafetyRail 2000 System's unique design eliminates the cost and danger of potential trip hazards created by intermediate counterweights used in other guardrail systems.


The SafetyRail 2000 has been tested by a nationally-recognized 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.

Architectural Series Roof Guardrail Systems - BLUEWATER image

Architectural Series Roof Guardrail Systems - BLUEWATER -

The Architectural Series combines our non-penetrating guardrail system with an architectural appeal for those applications where appearance of the railing is important. The 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. The Architectural Series is ideal for new building construction, adding passive fall protection to an existing building or as an addition to existing guardrails.
