Perimeter Protection Products
Perimeter Protection In Use

• Fast Installation and Removal. Decrease Perimeter Exposure by 87%
• OSHA Compliant
• Versatile and Reusable. Use Perimeter Protection Posts During Construction at:

• Building Perimeter Between Columns
• Building Perimeter at Roof Level
• Around Elevator Shafts
• Around Stair Well Openings

Our system consists of a base plate and post. The base plate can be welded to the structural beams in the fabrication shop or in the field. The posts are then screwed into the base plates. If concrete is to be poured, we provide a protective plastic sheath to slide over the bottom of the post to facilitate easy removal at the end of the job. The posts support the wire cable at the perimeter of the building and can be easily removed and re-used on future buildings. The base plates become part of the building and at the roof level can be uncovered for future use as tie-off points with our fall arrestor accessory.

We supply base plates that will attach to many different structures. They can be: Welded to steel structures, Imbedded in "poured in place" concrete structures, Fastened to wood blocking, pre-cast concrete, or hollow core concrete planks, Clamped to I-beams, Clamped to parapets, and many others.


Our system eliminates 87% of the exposure at the edge of the building and saves a significant amount of labor during installation and even more during the removal. We have designed our system to be re-usable and to protect workers at the edge of the roof, lower floor perimeter, as well as, the stairwell and elevator shafts. It was designed to eliminate the currently used angle iron that is being welded into the roof and lower floor beams that later needs to be cut off, ground down and thrown out.

Besides saving on labor costs for installation and removal, our posts can be re-used. On high-rise buildings, re-use them on the higher floors after you close in the lower ones, and then re-use them on the next building, saving you even more money.

• 42” & 60” posts available
• OSHA compliant—supports 200 lb. side load and provides 5,000 lb. tie-off point
• Fast installation & removal
• Posts reusable on future projects
• No tools required
• Weld base plates at fabrication facility or in field
• Base plates remain as permanent fall arrestor system for building
Cost Savings for PPP products over angle iron

Perimeter Protection Product Components
Perimeter protection post with bracket bottom

The post shown at left is the basic component of the perimeter protection product system. The one shown is screwed into the base. Normally, the base is embeded in the roof or flooring concrete and is not exposed, except for the opening for the threaded section.

The base component can also accept other threaded parts such as fall arrestors. One of these is shown at right. There are other variations of fall arrestors available. These will be shown below.

The main advantage of this new perimeter protection system is the potention for huge savings in labor costs and the fact that with the exception of the cast-in-place bases, the components can be removed when the job is done and taken to another job site and re-used there.

This eliminates the labor costs of using cutting torches and grinders, along with support equipment and permitting costs needed when other temporary perimeter posts (such as angle iron) are removed at the end of the job.

Western Safety Products is proud to offer these products for the construction industry.
