Figures published by the Health & Safety Executive show that falls through fragile roof materials could equate to nearly a quarter of fatal accidents in the construction industry. The Filon Fixsafe system has been developed to address this problem and play a major part in reducing this statistic.
Safety first – no need to access fragile roofs
The Fixsafe system has been designed to allow profiled roofsheets or rooflights to be replaced from below, eliminating the need to access dangerous fragile roofs, thereby increasing safety for maintenance operatives and equipment erectors.
Save lives and save money, too
By removing the requirement for costly safety netting, roof staging, fall protection or external scaffolding, access equipment costs are minimised, on-site time is reduced and lives are not put at risk.
The speed and ease with which roof repairs can be carried out using the Fixsafe system brings important advantages to building owners, with reduced disruption and safer working procedures.
The Health & Safety Executive has responded positively to the introduction of the Fixsafe system as a means of allowing those involved in repairing fragile roofs to work fully in compliance with Regulation 9 of the Working at Height Regulations, 2005.
A complete system
The Fixsafe system comprises specific GRP replacement sheets to match all popular asbestos and fibre cement profiles, together with patented Fixsafe fixings to allow installation to be carried out from below.
Peace of mind
By greatly reducing the risk of serious injury or death, the Fixsafe system brings peace of mind to employers and building owners when repair work is required.
