Roof Walkway

Roof walkways

When accessing rooftops is vital for the maintenance and monitoring of your structure, installing a secure roof walkway system will ensure the day-to-day safety of your workers. The make and style of the rooftop walkway will differ depending on the surface and pitch of your roof, but there’s always a best-fit solution out there. And, at Peak Commercial, it’s our business to bring that solution to you.

Benefits of roof walkways

Avoid potential slips and falls

When working at heights, the safety of your workers should be the top priority. Roof walkways are built with anti-slip material to provide a risk free working environment on any rooftop, letting employees work faster and with more confidence. Peak Commercial walkways also reduce liability, as they adhere to strict Australian standards for mitigating hazards and risk of falling injury.

Protect the roof surface

Aside from being inherently dangerous, walking directly on your roof’s surface can cause both superficial and structural damage. If you expect regular foot traffic on your rooftop, then this kind of damage is almost unavoidable. Installing a roof walkway system protects roof surfaces and reduces the frequency of maintenance.

Access your equipment safely

Our roof walkways are durable, slip resistant, and able to be built around existing rooftop units. They allow safe access to installed equipment, built to specification to give your workers the assurance they need to complete their duties without concern.

Types of roof access walkways

Roof access walkways are primarily built with metal or fibre, but depending on your needs we are able to provide sturdy, safe designs in a range of alternative materials.

Aluminium Roof Walkway Systems

For pitched or sloping rooftops, aluminium roof walkway systems are an ideal option. They are a common choice, coming with a knurled design and a strong grip suitable for both wet and dry conditions. These walkways can also be fitted with guardrails, enhancing path visibility and reducing fall risks to a minimum.

Made with high-quality materials, aluminium-made walkways are a reliable and easily installed solution for roof access that we have no reservations in recommending to our clients.

Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic Walkway Systems

As an alternative to aluminium, fibre reinforced walkways are made from premium grade Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic resin with composite fibre reinforcement. This material makes fibre walkways more lightweight than aluminium walkways without compromising on durability or resistance to weathering. They are an ideal solution for rooftops with lower load capacities and they come with the same guardrails and slip resistant materials to enhance your workers’ safety.

Australian standards

Ensuring the safety of your workers is our priority. We make certain that all our materials and equipment meet Australian standards for durability, strength and quality. Every rooftop walkway that Peak Commercial installs are made of high-grade materials and they comply with the following standards (as per AS1657:2018):
A minimum of 600mm width for walkways
Covered in anti-slip surface material
Cross slope does not exceed 7° Installed guardrailing system when the slope exceeds 12° on the lower side of the walkway Installed cleats when walkway runs inline with the slope of a roof that exceeds 10°

Our roof walkways are all tested and undergo thorough inspections to guarantee that they not only meet safety specifications, but go beyond standards whenever possible to maximise risk prevention.

Installation Process.

Aluminium Walkways

Our aluminium walkway systems come in a variety of styles, each with their own specific installation process. On every project, we will engage with you to understand your specific circumstances and find the best solution for your rooftop surface.

However, in general, the process that we follow first involves installing temporary anchor points. This is both for the safety of our own staff during the walkway installation, as well as others requiring onsite rooftop access.
Then, we will most commonly affix the walkway’s own permanent anchor points using an aluminium offset batten to rivet the roof sheeting through a rubber pad. This maintains the waterproofing of the rooftop surface and ensures that no unwanted damage is caused.

In circumstances where we are unable to penetrate the surface of the roof, we will use a non-penetrating clamp system. In doing so, we ensure that the battens are perfectly spaced out and laid on the roof, helping the walkway stay in place and preventing it from bouncing or flexing when used.

A note on Fibre Walkways

For more secure rooftop walkway systems, a combination of both fibre and aluminium walkways may be required. Although they are more lightweight, fibre walkways still serve as a reliable fall protection system for your workers. They are able to be cast in a range of high visibility colours, making them easy to see and naturally reducing trip hazards.
