Passive Safety

Passive Fall Protection refers to a system that is non-dynamic, stationary and does not change, move or adapt when in or out of use.

It does not require the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or active participation from an operative.

K Contracts Ltd installs the following Passive Solutions:


Roof Edge Guardrails can be installed on any flat roof such as Single Ply, Standing Seam and Concrete. Most systems are contra-balanced and non-penetrative.

Options include:

  • Aluminium, Galvanised or Powder-Coated finish.
  • Collapsible Systems.
  • Side Fixed Systems. 
  • Self Closing Gates.
  • Certified to EN133741 and EN141223 standards.

Solar Panel Support Posts

With the ever-increasing reliance on renewable energy and roofs being used as generators of power via the installation of solar panels – guardrails have been redesigned to account for the reduced space on roof areas.

In addition, the attributes of the fall protection post, in terms of fixings and sealing – retrospectively enable solar panels to be fitted more effectively than the more traditional yet invasive through-the-roof method.
