Why should you trust Sydney Gutter Clean to install your Safe Roof Access System?
We don't just install these systems - we use them!
Every day we put our lives and safety on the line (excuse the pun) to clean, install or repair gutters. We prefer to use systems that we have installed because we know they have been installed correctly.
At Sydney Gutterclean we strive to install the best OH&S systems possible. This ensures the safety of our staff and of any resident, member of the public, or tradesperson that attends the sites on which we work. It also ensures that risk of litigation is minimised to the benefit of ourselves, the owners of the property and the managing agent involved.
You may not be aware that around 98% of all roofs in NSW are non-compliant as regards to current OH&S legislation. This means that it is not possible for personnel to carry out any work on the roof in a completely safe manner. At present we do our best to keep our workers safe by setting up temporary anchor points where possible so as to remain safe as we work the perimeter of the roof, cleaning, installing or repairing gutters and downpipes.
The installation of a Safe Roof Access System ensures that from the moment the tradesman leaves the ground and starts climbing the ladder, until the moment he steps off the ladder at the completion of the work he is completely safe from falling and injuring himself.
While the initial outlay is reasonably substantial, it is an investment in the property from a servicing and OH&S compliance point of view.
To encourage our customers to consider the installation of such systems we offer substantial discount options to reward customers who make it safe for us to carry out our work.
We install Anchor Points for Tiled and Metal Roofs on residential, commercial and strata managed properties. We use SafetyLink's height safety product range of roof anchors, static line systems, and ladder systems. SafetyLink's height safety anchors are specially designed to absorb energy, reducing the risk of injury to the person and reducing the damage to your property's structure.
SafetyLink's anchor points are rated to withstand [tile link safety anchor] 22kN. (AS/NZS1891.4 standard) Because a fall is never an anticipated event, these anchor points are multidirectional
- providing 360-degree access, making it safer and also reducing the number of anchors needed to make a roof safe.
This unique design (episode winner of ABC1 The New Inventors) is a two-person anchor rated at 22kN is quick to install, no need to cut the sarking thereby eliminating a multitude of waterproofing issues. The FrogLink also invented by SafetyLink is used on metal roofs and has the same energy absorbing design features, is simple to install, fixes to the roof sheeting with seven industrial rivets, also rated as a two-person anchor.
You may not at present be able to install a full Safe Roof Access System due to budget or other constraints, so why not consider installing just one or more anchor points to improve safety? You could possibly do this at regular intervals until your property is WHS (OH&S) compliant.
Our Ladder Brackets are made from Marine Grade Aluminium and are quick to install. They are a vital part of any safety system as they are the access point to the roof, holding and stabilising the ladder, preventing sideways movement.
