The Safety Boot Guardrail System is superior to any job or shop built temporary railing system.
Make your work place safe as required by OSHA by installing the Safety Boot Guardrail System on every multilevel job site. Providing and maintaining guardrail systems on job sites is the responsibility of the prime contractor/builder, even if all construction work is subcontracted.
Fast, Flexible and Affordable.
The reusable Safety Boot allows you to quickly construct freestanding railings for stairways, ramps, walkways, balconies and/or roofs. Utilizing job site tools, specified fasteners and construction grade 2X4s, the durable Safety Boot Guardrail System is the most cost effective solution for temporary railings. And, since the Safety Boot requires no bracing, the Safety Boot Guardrail System can remain in place throughout construction, including drywall!
Protect Your Employees, Subcontractors and Assets.
Government Regulations and common law require you to protect your employees and subcontractors by offering a safe working environment. Because of the influence of OSHA in recent years, OSHA's standards are now the criteria used in litigation to determine a "reasonably safe work place." The Safety Boot has been certified by a national engineering testing firm as exceeding all OSHA regulations and requirements in order to assure compliance. The Safety Boot Guardrail System is fast, efficient and strong, and can keep up with the pace of construction on any commercial or residential project.
Simple and Cost Effective.
Two 2X4s are inserted into the center core to form a rigid post. No bracing is needed. The Safety Boot anchors securely in most subfloor structures with standard power tools and fasteners. (The type of specified fastener is determined by the subfloor material.) Built-in flanges allow toe-boards to be inserted without using fasteners. Toe-boards, which are required by OSHA, can be lifted out temporarily to bring up material and for clean-up. When the permanent railings are installed, each Safety Boot, with post attached, can be removed easily for use at another construction site.
Confidence and Reliability.
The Safety Boot Guardrail System is superior to any job or shop built temporary railing system and is currently being used by thousands of builders and contractors. The Safety Boot protects you with a full one year replacement guarantee. In fact, most contractors reuse each Safety Boot at least 5 to 6 times the first year alone, with several years of reuse.
