Kee Dome® is a modular system designed specifically to prevent falls through skylights, roof lights and dome lights. The modular Kee Dome system allows contractors and maintenance crews to access rooftops for repair and maintenance work safely and easily without the risk of falling through glazed areas.
Why do you need Kee Dome Skylight Railing?
The Kee Dome® system has standard components which can be assembled around the designated area with maximum speed. These include vertical posts, hand and knee rails with associated 90° corner components, and special recycled PVC feet with clamping rings.
Although designed as a permanent solution, the Kee Dome® system is fully modular, so it can also be expanded to suit any size skylight. It’s one solution for many different sizes. The system is suitable for use on all roof surfaces, with a maximum pitch of 3°.
Kee Dome® uses industry-leading Kee Klamp® components that are galvanised, making the system long-lasting and virtually maintenance-free. Kee Dome® has also been independently tested to BS EN ISO 14122 Part 3 and OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.23.
Fits square and rectangular skylights, rooflights and dome lights.
All sizes of raised roof lights can be protected with the same product.
The Kee Dome® system can be assembled using simple hand tools.
Overview of Kee Dome® Skylight Railing
Protecting People from a Dangerous Hazard
Kee Dome creates a barrier around the skylight to prevent workers from contacting the skylight. This system protects the skylight with a non-penetrating railing without damaging or puncturing the roof.
Highest standards for off-the-ground safety
Kee Dome is designed to be compliant with OSHA 1910.29(b)(3) and 1910.28(b)(3)(i)(B)
Complies with BS EN ISO 14122 Part 3

Skylight screens are the most cost effective means of providing OSHA compliant fall protection solutions over skylights. In some cases, however, the skylight is too large or tall to install a screen. In these cases Kee Dome is the perfect solution. Additionally, in some cases clients are concerned about the grid-shadow a screen would create on the inside of the building and decide to use Kee Dome to eliminate this concern.
The bars welded inside of a skylight are commonly known as “burglar bars” and are designed to keep thieves out of your facility, not to protect from the impact of a fall. Furthermore, these bars do not protect workers or equipment below the opening from being struck by shards of the broken dome or potential biological contaminants should an impact occur. Kee Safety does not recommend using burglar bars as fall protection.
In simple terms, yes. In 1910.28(b)(3)(i) OSHA states that employees must be protected from any hole 4' or higher above a lower level. However, we recommend partnering with a Kee Safety Expert to help prioritise the fall hazards on your roof using a risk-assessment based approach.
