Measuring your skylight safely
Our safety nets are made to measure and bespoke for your skylights. Before you buy your roof light protection system, you need to do some basic measurements so we can create a perfect and safe fit.
When measuring for safety nets always carry out a risk assessment prior to accessing any roof and ensure appropriate methods of fall protection are in place. A perfect way to safely measure any skylights is to use one of our oversized quadtube frames. They are a great portable protection piece and enable you to get the job done with an easy system you can move from skylight to skylight.
Skylights, roof lights and fragile roof surfaces come in all shapes and sizes, the most common being dome, pyramid or flat roof skylights.
MEASURING FOR A SAFENET:
The Safenet will require a measurement over the curve or highest point of the skylight for overall width and length required whilst allowing for the perimeter of the net to fit under the flange of the skylight kerb. The size (or perimeter) of the roof kerb is also required to determine the length of ratchet strap required around each finished net.
MEASURING FOR A SAFETUBE OR QUADTUBE
The Safetube system is measured in a similar manner with the same overall width and length being required over the curve or highest point of the skylight.
In addition the width and length of the outer edges of the skylight are also required to determine the size of the tubular frame and to ensure it fits over, and slightly down the side of the kerb.
