Many warehouses and factories have facilities that are constructed within a building structure. These facilities need a variety of equipment, like ventilation or cooling systems. This equipment is usually mounted on the top of the roof and needs to be regularly maintained.
Protecting the safety of workers and contractors in internal applications is as important as providing fall protection to operatives on the top of external roofs. When it comes to roof edge protection, it’s not just about safety; it’s also about versatility and ease of installation. That’s where Fisher Alvin’s Non-Penetrating Internal Freestanding Roof Edge Protection system comes into play.
Our solution offers superior safety for inside applications, granting you peace of mind while ensuring compliance with safety regulations. Fisher Alvin’s freestanding edge protection system is ideal for cold store roofs.

For over 15 years, Fisher Alvin’s counterbalanced railing system has been a trusted choice for fall protection in elevated working environments. Our system is very adaptable. It can be used on virtually any flat internal roof or gradients of up to 10 degrees. It’s suitable for both new construction projects and retrofitting existing rooftops.
Our counterbalanced arms are equipped with 3mm fluted rubber pads, which securely hold the system in place, without compromising the integrity of the roof surface. The low-profile design eliminates the need for unsightly and heavy concrete or rubber weights, reducing trip hazards.
We’ve designed our system for ease of installation. The system uses Key Clamp fittings and galvanised steel components. Installation requires no drilling, bolting, or other complex mounting processes that could damage your infrastructure.
Whether you’re working in a warehouse, factory, or any internal setting with elevated platforms or roof access, our freestanding roof edge protection adapts seamlessly to various environments.
