Benefits of Roofwalk Rooftop Walkways
Protect the Roof from Foot Traffic. Roofwalk walk ways provide a clearly defined, safe walking surface for service technicians or maintenance personnel. The walk ways will provide access to critical equipment, while keeping employees off the roof.
Corrosion Resistant Materials. The standard Unistrut Roofwalk finish is our weather resistant electro-galvanized. For harsher environments such as coastal environments, Roofwalks are available in Unistrut Defender (LINK), Aluminum, or Stainless Steel.
Customized Designs Available. The Unistrut Supports for the Roofwalk systems can be customized to match your roofs conditions. Whether you want an elevated walkway on a pitched roof or a diagonal run across a standing seam roof, Unistrut has the capacity to design a unique system for your building.
Pre-Fabricated Components Available. Unistrut Roofwalks are designed with repeatable components that can be fabricated in our factory and shipped to the job site kitted and tagged for easy on site assembly.
OSHA Approved Walkways. Unistrut Rooftop Walk Way Systems have several key features to keep employees safe while on the roof. The Anti-Skid Surface of United Interlock Grating prevents slippage. The handrails (available on one side or both-sides) will prevent falls and keep workers away from the edges of the roof. The kick plate will help prevent tools or hardware from falling off the walkway or roof.
No Roof Penetration Required. The standard standing seam Roofwalks are designed with connection hardware that attach the walkway to the standing seam ribs. The only exception to our “no penetration” policy is panel rib roof type which have no standing seams.
