Safety equipment

Safety equipment are used with the Pisko ladder and roof safety products, according to the requirements of the site and to the valid building regulations.
Together with the Pisko ladders and roof walkways, the safety equipment ensure safe movement in demanding maintenance sites where use of the personal safety equipment is necessary.

The safety equipment are made of hot galvanised or basin-galvanised steel. The safety equipment can also be ordered with powder paint coating in RR and RAL colour shades.

Safety equipment to the roof walkway

The roof walkway must be equipped with a safety rail or an open rail of at least 1,100 mm in height, if the house is over two storeys high and the roof pitch is 1:1.5 or more. When performing maintenance work on the roof, the lifeline is attached using the Pisko horizontal rail or rope fastener. The rope fastener can be used on roofs, where installation of the safety rail is not appropriate.

Safety equipment to the ladder

If the overall height of the entrance ladder is over 8 m, it must be equipped with a safety rail or back guard (The National Building Code of Finland F2). If the overall height of the ladder equipped with a back guard, exceeds 10 m, it must be equipped also with an intermediate landing (prEN 12437). The climbing distance between the landings must not exceed 6 m. For example, 18 m high ladder equipped with a back guard must have landings at heights of 6 m and 12 m.

The Pisko ladders can be equipped with an SF safety rail or Pisko back guard. The back guard is a safety accessory of the Pisko ladder system and it can be used as an alternative to the safety rail.
