When working on a roof, there is always a risk of falling. A roofer or installer who works on a flat roof must be able to rely on his safety equipment. Kedge Safety Systems is an innovative company for fall protection that turns every flat roof into a safe workplace.
Kedge operates on the basic principle that the installation of our fall protection systems must be very quick and easy, without making any concessions regarding safety and without damaging the roofing material, insulating layer or roof construction.
The Kedge Anchor Points are tested under extreme conditions and meet the strictest safety requirements. When using Kedge Anchor Points, we recommend always setting the length of the lifeline to ensure that the roofer, installer or any other person on the roof can never fall over the roof edge. Working according to the method for area limitation is always the safest way of working on a flat roof.
If a roof is very frequently accessed by roofers, installers or others, we recommend installing collective fall protection. Permanent fall protection in the shape of safety fencing is the safest solution in that case. A combination of anchor points and fencing is also always possible. The optimum safety measures are different for every roof. Fall protection requires custom solutions.
The story of Kedge Safety Systems starts with a revolutionary idea from a roofer. Until that time, anchor points were mechanically fastened to the roof construction. Drilling through roofing material, however, went against the very nature of the roofer, so he came up with the idea of bonding an anchor point to the roofing material. After extensive testing, this became the Kedge Anchor Point. Attaching the anchor point to the roofing material makes smart use of the flexibility, strength and mass of the roofing material.
Following the product’s successful launch, suppliers of mechanical anchor points unleashed a torrent of criticism. Standards were ambiguous and this was used to paint the Kedge Anchor Point in a bad light. Kedge was even taken to court due to questions about the reliability of the Kedge Anchor Point. In the end, the European Court of Justice decided fully in Kedge’s favour. This case was the reason why a standard was developed for anchor points that are permanently attached to a building. For years, manufacturers had apparently been applying CE markings to their products based on the wrong standard. When viewed from this perspective, Kedge contributed to improving the product safety of anchor points.
