F.A.Q.

Ever wondered how to safely access equipment or perform maintenance on a sloped or flat roof? ATBEST® Roofwalk Systems provide the answer! These innovative systems are essentially elevated walkways designed to create a secure and stable path across your roof surface.

Constructed from durable materials like steel, aluminum, and rubber, ATBEST® roofwalks offer long-lasting performance and the ability to adapt to various roof types. They essentially transform your roof into a safe and accessible environment, allowing you to conquer any roof with confidence.

Maintaining roof-mounted equipment like heating and cooling units is essential, but navigating a sloped or flat roof in unpredictable weather can be a safety hazard. Here’s where roofwalk systems become crucial.

ATBEST® roofwalk systems provide a safe and secure pathway specifically designed for accessing roof-mounted equipment. These elevated walkways eliminate the risk of slips and falls for workers, no matter the weather conditions. This not only prioritizes worker safety but also minimizes liability concerns for building owners.

By investing in a roofwalk system, you gain year-round access to your roof-mounted equipment for maintenance and repairs, ensuring their optimal performance and the overall safety of your building. It’s a win-win for both worker well-being and building security.

ATBEST® understands the importance of prioritizing safety when navigating your roof. That’s why our roofwalk systems are designed to provide a secure and stable platform for accessing roof-mounted equipment and performing maintenance tasks.

These versatile walkways can be customized to integrate with guardrails, offering additional fall protection for workers. Local building codes often mandate guardrails in specific areas, typically within 6 feet of the building’s edge. Whether mandated by code or desired for enhanced safety, ATBEST® roofwalks can be easily configured to include guardrails, ensuring workers have maximum protection while navigating your roof.

By combining a secure walking surface with optional guardrails, ATBEST® roofwalks create a comprehensive safety solution for your rooftop needs.

ATBEST® prioritizes worker safety. Our Universal Roofwalk System provides fall protection near edges on flat roofs (max pitch 1/2 in. per foot). Using it differently voids the warranty and shifts responsibility to owner/worker in case of injury. Need a solution for steeper roofs? Contact ATBEST® for a wider range of fall protection options.

ATBEST® keeps your roof safe. Our roofwalks provide a secure walking surface, while Universal Free Standing Guardrail systems offer extra protection around openings and perimeters. But remember, safety starts with awareness. Identify roof hazards and train your workers for complete rooftop confidence.
