At what height do I need edge protection?
The short answer to this is ALL roofs require edge protection regardless of the distance to the ground. Worksafe are enforcing their “Working at heights” campaign vigorously and will look to prosecute any non compliant working practice at height.
Is this edge protection compliant?
Yes, all of our systems have passed rigorous testing under supervision of a registered engineer in accordance with AS/NZS4994.1:2009 Standard.
Can I erect this system myself?
Yes, any able bodied person can erect our edge protection systems. You do not have to hold any formal qualification. Ill informed scaffolders may tell you that you have to be a scaffolder or hold a scaffolding qualification to erect our systems which is 100% incorrect! Our systems are classified as a “proprietary edge protection system” Not scaffolding. If you would like full clarification on this, please contact us.
Can I use timber rails with your system?
Yes we have tested all our systems with SG8 90×45 rails (standard 4×2 framing) which can be used compliantly to 2.7mtr centres.
Are your brackets compatible with timber and aluminium tube?
Yes, each rail mount has two mounting holes. One for tek screwing timber rails down and the other for a rail clamp.
I have been told that timber rails are not compliant is this right?
No, this is incorrect. You are able to use SG8 90×45 rails (standard 4×2 framing) with our systems as we have tested these in accordance with AS/NZS4994.1:2009 and can supply a producer statement/compliance certificate from a registered engineer for their use.
I have some galvanised scaffold tube already, can I use this with your system?
Yes you can. Galvanised tube is fine for use with all our systems however very heavy and we recommend the use of aluminium tube for better site efficiency and safety.
Do the brackets stack well?
Yes, the laser cut and folded design allows for all brackets to be stacked in a neat pile for easy storage and transport to site unlike other systems that leave you with a huge untidy pile of brackets.
Do you have a system for new houses?
Yes, we have systems for standard soffits and gable ends, stud mounted brackets and our EBR bracket works on new housing, as well.
Do you have a system for existing houses?
Yes, our EBR system has been developed specifically for fitment to most existing structures for re roofing, painting, moss treatments and solar energy installation etc. It is also ideal for new housing and alterations.
Do the rail heights need to be installed at a specific distance apart?
Yes they do. However we have made this easy for you by pre fabricating the mounting points at the required centres so all you need to do is drop the rails in and tighten the clamps.
o the brackets leave enough room for the gutter and fascia?
Yes, the design of the bracket allows plenty of room for even a large boxed gutter.
How much does the system weigh?
Our 66 lineal metre pack weighs only 668kgs so is easily trailered to site or stacked on a small truck.
How does your Re roof system compare to others for price?
Our system packages have proven to be cheaper yet offer more equipment than our competitors, so offers great value for money.
Do you provide training for the E Bracket® system?
Yes we can come to you and provide training on your site, so you can be satisfied the system is erected correctly and you and your team are confident going forward. Contact us to discuss your training options.
