December 18, 2014, Chaska, MN – BlueWater, a leading manufacturer of modular guardrail systems, introduces its Skylight Defender. Engineered to prevent employee injuries and deaths from falls through skylights, this non-penetrating fall protection solution meets and exceeds the 200 pound national OSHA regulation as well as the California OSHA mandates by withstanding and supporting at least 400 pounds.
To eliminate any damage to the skylight or roofing membrane, the Skylight Defender requires no drilling. Using basic tools, the Skylight Defender simply fastens onto the skylight frame using a unique compression system in about 30 minutes. Depending on the application, larger skylights may require some drilling.
“Robust engineering and an exclusive non-penetrating design set the Skylight Defender apart from traditional solutions,” said Tony Mertes, Lead Engineer at BlueWater. “With superior durability and easy installation, our customers can satisfy their diverse skylight protection needs.”
For increased endurance, the Skylight Defender features a wire screen thickness of 1/4 inch, which is stronger and thicker than conventional products currently in the market. Constructed of welded galvanized mesh, the Skylight Defender screen ensures complete skylight protection.
