Fall Protection For Data Centre

Fall Protection for Data Centre Rooftops


11 رمضان 1443

Kee Safety has recently worked with a leading global digital infrastructure company in the UAE to allow safe access onto one of its data centres’ roofs. We have designed, supplied and installed a fall protection system on a roof for their maitenance teams.

Non Penetrating Roof Railings

Background

The data canter’s roof had 5 sections, 3 were membrane roofs and 2 were sandwich panels, which meant the chosen solution needed to work with both roof types.

Both standard guardrail and lifeline systems were ruled out early on in the project, as there were concerns about the weight of the standard guardrail using steel tubes on the roof sections, while the roof structure would have to be penetrated during the installation of the lifeline.  The potential risk of water leakage and dust contamination was too great for the extremely sensitive environment below.

The Solution

The solution was the installation of Kee Guard Lite - our free standing rooftop guardrail with lightweight aluminium tube.  The simple counterbalance construction provided collective protection without compromising the roof membrane.

Our in-depth loading calculations confirmed that using aluminium tubing would reduce the fall protection system's overall weight to an acceptable level.

The Benefits

Kee Guard - a modular, free standing railing system provides a permanent, safe and dependable barrier for the roof edge and does not penetrate the roof membrane.
