The purpose of a SiteGuard safety guard is to prevent a person from falling through a natural ventilator and is for use on climate control and smoke control projects. SiteGuard is suitable both for new installations and for retrofits. It has been exhaustively third party tested to the latest regulations.
Reliable safety - Thanks to its sophisticated lattice structure, SiteGuard can absorb the high forces placed on it by a person falling onto it due to its special design. Should a person fall onto the guard, the forces generated are absorbed by it and they are not transferred onto the building structure.
Third party tested - SiteGuard has been tested in accordance with the GS-Bau 18 standard. GS Bau is one of the main professional associations which tests building elements for their ability to prevent people from falling through such elements. The testing regime includes the examination and assessment of the sustainability of components and glazing.
Exceeds current regulations - GS- Bau 18 requires a successful dissipation of ≤ 300 joules of energy. SiteGuard has undergone tests to 600 joules in accordance with GS-Bau-18. As a result there is a safety factor of 2 which takes care of the tolerances of the materials used.
Several different installation options - Its low weight and its fixing system enable it to be easily installed.
Aerodynamic performance is unaffected - It has been proven that fitting a SiteGuard into a ventilator throat has no negative impact on the aerodynamic performance of the natural ventilator installed above it, thus there is no loss of EN 12101-2 certification.
