Passive Fall Protection Safety Products


Fall Prevention for Fixed Ladders

Meets OSHA Requirements 1910.29(b) and 1926.502(b)

One of the most dangerous situations on a roof is when you reach the top of a fixed ladder. One misstep to the left or right and backward when standing at the leading edge can result in a fall.

LadderGuard prevents this by putting a physical barrier between the fall edge and people. The ladder connectors and guardrails provide a safe passageway to escort people safely 6’ away from the fall edge once they pass through the self-closing gate.

LadderGuard is non-penetrating into the roof and has provisions for being the starting point for a full perimeter fall prevention plan using warning lines and/or guardrails.

  • Provides an OSHA compliant fall prevention system for fixed ladders
  • Weighted bases are used rather than fasteners which can introduce leaks
  • Adjustable ladder connectors close the gap between the ladder and the guard rails
  • Ladder connectors can be attached to round or square ladder handrails
  • A self-closing gate 6’ away from the edge completes the system.
