What is a Roof Cart and What Protection Do They Provide?
This Week’s Topic!
On this week’s episode of Dynamic Discussions, Greg and David talk to us about what a roof cart is and the kinds of fall protection you can expect from one.
What is a Roof Cart?
A roof cart is a mobile anchorage system that is designed for use on a flat roof, usually a commercial flat roof. Roof carts can be used for fall protection in a variety of ways including fall arrest and fall restraint depending on the type of roof cart in use. Most roof carts can support four workers at once, two in fall arrest and two in fall restraint.
So How Do I Use a Roof Cart?
Roof carts are simple to use. They are typically flown to the top of a commercial flat roof with a crane and, once they are safely placed on top of the substrate, they can then be maneuvered around the workspace like a wheelbarrow. Most roof carts feature large wheels to make maneuvering quick and simple. These handy units can be placed on a flat roof and, in the event of a fall, then plunge into the substrate of the roof to anchor down and protect workers in fall arrest.
