Fall Protection Covers

Ascentâ„¢ Fall Protection Covers

Ascent fall protection covers are designed to provide a Collective Fall protection solution for workers accessing or working adjacent to fragile surfaces. The Ascent fall Protection covers can be used either individually to protect an isolated hazard such as a roof light or as a system to protect a fragile roof surface. 

The covers are typically 2m (high) x 3m (long) and are laid to the fragile surface where they are retained by clips affixed to the adjacent surface. They have the added benefit that due to their mesh based construction they have only a minimal impact on the level of light entering a building when used to protect roof lights / North light glazing.

What We Do

Wherever roof access is required, designers are tasked with creating a safe route to and from the place of work. Following the hierarchy of safety collective protection measures should always be considered above individual fall protection solutions.

D-marc is classed as a form of Collective Demarcation Protection in accordance with the HSE's hierarchy of risk management as set out within the Working at Height Regulations 2005 (WAHR). The WAHR 2005 Part 3 illustrates the use of a demarcation system as an "example of taking other additional suitable and sufficient measures to prevent a fall''. The demarcation system is to be placed a safe distance from the fall hazard (normally >2m). Health and Safety Roofwork HSG33 states that "where work is not done at the edge, demarcation barriers can be provided at a safe distance from the edge (usually at least 2 metres). e.g. work on an air-conditioning unit in the middle of a roof."
