Fixed ladders may not be in constant use at your building—there’s probably much more going on inside your structure than on top of it. But you still need to remember the big picture. CentiMark is used to looking at things a little differently.
The Anatomy of a Custom Roof Hatch Railing System
In Safe Roof Series (Part 4): Roof Hatches we defined in general what a roof hatch railing system is as well as a brief history of them. We now will expand on the hatch railing description by discussing some of the features of a non-standard system.

Safety and Roof Access Hatches
What are Roof Access Hatches?
Many roofs, especially low sloped roofs, are accessed via a fixed ladder or stairway leading to a roof hatch or scuttle. Most hatches are equipped with a hinged lid that has pistons or springs to assist in opening the lid along with a locking mechanism to keep it open. These fixed ladders and hatchways make climbing onto a roof more convenient than using an extension ladder.
Roof edge railing types, applications and installation
In our previous article: Safe Roof Series (Part 2): Skylight Fall Protection, we discussed Skylight Fall Protection. This week we move from the center roof to the roof edge.
National Safety Stand-down: Set Up for Success
June 2 -6, 2014.
As part of OSHA and the NRCA’s efforts to raise awareness among employees and workers about the hazards for falls, CentiMark will be featuring safety in our CentiMark Blog every day this week. During the Stand-down, employers and workers are asked to pause their workday to talk about fall prevention, ladder safety, scaffolding safety and roofing work safety.
