Portable Guardrail Base Plates: Why Weight Matters

Non-penetrating, free-standing, or portable guardrail is a common solution for roof fall protection applications because it is simple to install and easy to use.  Because most portable guardrail systems look the same–yellow, steel railing sections and weighted base plates—folks often assume the primary differentiating factor between competing systems is price.  Although price is always an important factor, the main differences between guardrail systems are where you might least expect—base plate design. Most guardrail manufacturers suggest that heavier base plates are safer and more secure, but heftier base designs are not always the best option.
