Temporary edge protection systems
Temporary edge protection systems are used in construction and maintenance work, primarily to prevent people from falling. Our edge protection systems have been designed and tested to the British & European Standard BS EN 13374:2013+A1:2018. The design and checking of the systems are compliant with BS5975 (Code of Practice for Temporary Works Procedures).
Bespoke systems and demarcation for non-standard structures can also be designed to suit your structure by our experienced external Temporary Works Designer.
Class A Temporary Edge Protection :
Provide protection to flat surfaces and slopes up to 10o. It provides resistance to static loads and is based on the requirement to support a person leaning against, holding onto, walking beside and possibly stumbling against the Edge Protection.
Class B Temporary Edge Protection :
Provides protection to sloping surfaces generally from 10o to 30o and to 60o for 2m slopes. Class B provides resistance to both static and low dynamic loads and is based on the requirements to support a person leaning against, walking beside and/or holding onto, and possibly stumbling against. It also contains a person who could slide down a steep sloping surface and subsequently impacts the edge protection.
Class C Temporary Edge Protection :
Provides protection to steeply sloping surfaces from 30o up to 45o and up to 60o for 5m slopes. It provides resistance to high dynamic loads only and is based on the requirements to contain a person sliding down a steeply sloping surface. Class C Edge Protection, in essence is a fall arrest system and does not provide a handhold or support for a person to lean against.
