Original Press Release:

New Range of Versatile Guardrails for Roof Edge Protection

Gorinchem, 21 April 2009

XSPlatforms is introducing a new range of guardrails for roof edge protection: XTP-Guardrail. The guardrails are available in three varieties: straight, curved and collapsible. They fit various types of roofs, do not affect the appearance of a building and do not damage the roof structure. At the same time they are strong, secure and 100 percent safe. The guardrails can be concealed without a problem by folding them flat or using slanting posts.


Guardrails provide safety at all times, regardless of the number of people working on the roof. Permanent fall protection in the form of guardrails is an attractive option when work at heights has to be done regularly. XTP-Guardrails are made of high-grade weather-resistant aluminium. The guardrails have a long life and are extremely hard wearing. The XTP-Guardrail system is certified (NEN-EN 13374) and maintenance-free, and it does not require periodic inspections.


Guardrails are visible and so clever design is crucial in order to preserve the architectural merits of a building. XTP-Guardrail stands out because of its elegant design and the high quality of the materials. Collapsible guardrails provide the solution when railings should only be seen while work is actually taking place on the roof.


Installing the XTP-Guardrail system is quick and easy. The main components simply click into position without the use of tools. Thanks to the free-standing design the guardrails do not need to be fixed to the roof, so there is absolutely no risk of leakage.


The guardrails can be purchased through a select network of distributors worldwide. If need be the distributors can also assemble them. The guardrails require no special maintenance or cleaning. See our website for information about our distribution network.
