Bluewater Roof Hatch Floor Door & Skylight Guardrail Systems

Protect your employees, and your investment while complying with OSHA regulations. It’s that simple.

OSHA requires guardrail protection on the exposed sides of openings of roofs and floors in most situations. Bluewater Manufacturing’s SafetyRail 2000 Guardrail System is designed to meet this safety concern. In fact, our roof Hatch/Skylight Systems exceed OSHA Std. 29 CFR 1910.23. The Roof Hatch/Skylight System is installed in minutes and easily dismantled for roof repair.
