* Valley-Walk can be used for the maintenance of valley gutters on asbestos roofs as long as the valley gutter itself is not made of asbestos. Never walk or touch an asbestos surface, as this could be fatal.
** Board-Walk is considered free-standing as it does not require fixing onto the roof surface.
*** Only the raised KeeCover units allow for skylight cleaning and maintenance.

How to detect fragile roofs

How to recognise a fragile roof

All roofs should be considered fragile until they’ve been deemed non-fragile by a competent person.

  • If they’re made of fibre-cement sheets, they are likely to be fragile.
  • If rooflights are present, then the roof is fragile. Beware of old or hidden rooflights (such as the ones hidden in the roof planes, discoloured or painted).
  • If there are liner panels on built-up sheeted roofs, then the roof is fragile.
  • If there are metal sheets on a roof, then the roof is likely to be fragile. Metal sheets are likely to corrode.
  • If glass is present (including wired glass), then the roof is fragile.
  • If chipboard is present, then the roof is fragile. This includes similar material that can rot easily.
  • If other materials such as wood wool slabs, slates and tiles are present, then the roof is fragile.

How do you keep safe on a roof?

Falls through fragile roof surfaces (especially fibre-cement and rooflights) account for 22% of all fall from height accidents in the construction industry (source: HSE). These accidents usually occur on roofs of factories, warehouses, farm buildings when roof repair or cleaning work is carried out.

What you need to do

  • If you can, avoid working on a roof completely. For example - where possible, try to replace roof sheets or lights from underneath, using a suitable work platform.
  • If working on a fragile roof is still needed, try to keep as safe as possible by using stagings, guardrails and fall arrest systems, as required.
  • Training workers is very important when working at height. Make sure that everyone knows how to use the products safely and that they are aware of all potential dangers of working on roofs.

Systems you can use:

Mesh walkways, Platforms, Walking frames, Skylight covers and guardrails.
