Solar Rooftop Guardrail – EnduRail

Application Need: Large warehouse at Jhajjar, Haryana. Its rooftop area is planned to use for solar power generation but due to sloping roof safety of installation team and utility maintenance staff was concern for the management.


  • Roof was designed without considering such application and safety requirements.
  • Management was looking into different options of harness to avoid fall protection from height, but they all were passive systems. The project team was looking for a system that does not require puncture in the roof to avoid water leakages from the roof in future and active fall protection at height.
  • Time was limited to install the prefabricated system and on-site work was required to be minimum.
  • Some active barricading was required for rooftop edge fall protection for the solar panel mounting contactor employee and maintenance staff working on the slopping roof.
