Theprotection system was designed to be installed at perimeter edges, internal openings, elevator shafts and stairs on high-rise construction sites.
A solution for increased safety, reduced labor and simplified site logistics, this guardrail system allows for all operations to be done by a single worker. It is lightweight, with the combined fence and post weight of 48 pounds. Doka claims that the installation, inspection and maintenance are five to 10 times faster as compared to conventional 2-by-4 or cables.
There are only three basic parts to set up and take down. The same fence can be used either horizontally or vertically, for 42" or 91" high protection. Everything is supplied on one pack—25 fences, posts and zip ties—so there are no loose parts, and the worksite remains safe and clean. Fences can be swung individually open and closed without modifications, repeated inspections and repairs.
The Smart Edge provides additional safety with integrated green-red indicators that reliably confirm to installers and inspectors, at a glance, if the post is correctly installed. The length and angle can be adjusted by changing the overlap of the fencing; pre+-measurement is not needed. Floor-to-ceiling heights can be reached with standard material from 7’4” to 14’. It can be used on both concrete and steel buildings.
The Smart Edge exceeds all applicable US codes and regulations, including OSHA, ANSI/ASSE and WISHA/WAC.
