A tier 1 construction company recently approached us to solve a problem arising from a new policy.

The new edict required all height safety rail systems to be fitted with kickboards to reduce the risk of tools and other materialsdropping from above.

Because temporary edge protection systems are incompatible with traditional kickboards, enacting the policy was proving difficult.

We worked with the company’s senior safety team and came up with a simple but revolutionary solution – what is, in effect, a wrapper.

Using industrial quality shade cloth, we enclosedthe guardrailfrom underneath the system to the mid-rail on the vertical face.

The method worked so well to mitigate risk; we had it fully engineered as our EWRG Edge Containment system, complete with written installation instructions.

Cost effective and very easy to install the system is increasingly in demand and being applied to large construction sites.
