Roofing isn’t exactly the safest occupation. You’re constantly in the line of danger. Every job you take on has its risks. Some are greater than others, but all can cause harm to you, or those around you. There is, however, one specific type of job that is frequently more dangerous than many others. You may already know what it is. If you do, then you’re surely aware of the stigma attached to it. If you’re thinking about skylight jobs, or jobs that put you face to face with them, then we’re on the same page.
In a survey conducted by the CDC, across seven states, it was reported that 22 percent of fatal falls were the result of a worker falling through a skylight (https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/90-100/default.html).
This evidence really just proves what we already know; that skylights are a serious danger to roofers while on the job. However, the real problem isn’t really with the skylights themselves. After all, they weren’t designed with the intention to hold the weight of a person, and it’s not exactly like they’re trying to hurt anyone. The real problem is that there isn’t any solid solution when it comes to protecting roofers from a skylight fall in the first place. Every skylight protection option you have on the market today is either a real pain to install or prevents you from working on the area around the skylight. Both are extremely inconvenient. What if we told you we have the solution to all your skylight issues? (p.s. we do)
We’d like to introduce you to the RACE Rail Skylight Kit. This revolutionary skylight protection system was designed for three key things. First and foremost, it provides unrivaled protection to roofers when working near skylights and fits skylights sized 30 inches by 30 inches, up to 4 feet by 4 feet. With the expansion pack, it can fit skylights up to 4 feet by 8 feet! Secondly, it eliminates the hassle caused by traditional skylight protection systems by offering non-penetrating attachment, innovative adjust-ability, and extremely simple assembly that requires no tools. The RACE Rail can be set up in less than five minutes and you can perform work around the skylight without removing the rail! Lastly, it’s one hundred percent OSHA compliant, which means you don’t need to be tied-off while it’s in use. You now have the ability to set up a skylight protection system within minutes, work on the area of the roof around the skylight without being tied-off and still fully comply with OSHA at the same time. In other words, this completely changes the game.
