We have recently completed the installation of KeeGuard® edge protection for Virgin Atlantic’s headquarters in Crawley to provide safe access to the roof for maintenance and inspection teams.
Working closely with Stephen Earl, Project Manager, CBRE (Norland), we carried out a site survey to determine the best solution for Virgin’s requirements. The roof already featured partially installed guardrails and demarcation systems which were deemed not fit-for-purpose. In order to provide a roof safety system to the roof perimeter of the building and surrounding the roof lights we specified and installed a comprehensive raked KeeGuard® system. The benefit of KeeGuard® is that the guardrail can be raked back at 11º to provide unobtrusive edge protection which was an important requirement of this installation.
