Maintenance of roof safety products

The roof with its accessories is an important and visible façade of the building, protecting people and the environment. The building and its surroundings must be maintained in such a condition that it continuously meets health, safety and usability requirements. Pisko products, which improve the operation, use and safety of the building, create a high-quality and functional whole. A properly designed and implemented safety product package ensures the overall operational safety of the building, even in challenging Nordic outdoor conditions. Regular inspections and, if necessary, maintenance measures ensure functionality.

The owner of the building is responsible of the maintenance of the roof safety products.


Inspection and maintenance of roof safety products

In the first year after installation, you should inspect roof safety products two times. After that, it is recommended that roof safety products be checked once a year. Maintenance operations are performed based on the observations observed during the inspection.

Roof access routes can be divided into two categories. Class 1 means that the product can be used as an access route. Class 2 means that the access route can also be used as a lifeline anchoring point. The lifeline anchoring points must be inspected annually by an inspector authorised by Pisko.

When inspecting and maintaining roof safety products, attention should be paid to the following points:

  • Inspection and maintenance of roof safety products
    • Wall ladders
    • Roof ladders
    • Roof walkways
    • Snow guards
  • Winter maintenance

Regular inspections

The location of the building and local conditions can significantly affect the amount of maintenance work. Light maintenance and regular inspections are usually sufficient. As a general guideline, the fastenings of roof safety products and their tightness should be checked in the autumn. In addition, leaves and debris accumulated on the roof should be removed. Any scratches on the paint surface can be repaired with touch-up paint. Regular maintenance measures ensure the operational safety of the building and the validity of the warranty.

See maintenance instructions for more detailed guidelines on roof safety product inspection and maintenance.

“Roof safety products have a decisive effect on the operational safety of a building
– inspections are quick and easy when done regularly.”



Remember to pay attention to safety issues even before starting maintenance work. Wear appropriate protective equipment when climbing on the roof and working at heights. The roof is very slippery when wet, and especially when icy. If the roof is steep, high, or in a difficult location, we recommend having the work done by a professional.
