To ensure your edge protection meets the highest standards of safety and performance, you must adhere to the European Standard of Temporary Edge Protection – EN 13374. This applies to edge protection systems for flat and inclined surfaces and specifies the requirements for three classes of temporary edge protection. These are known as Class A, Class B and Class C.
- Class A – protection to flat surfaces and slopes generally up to 10 degrees.
- Class B – protection to flat surfaces and slopes up to 30 degrees.
- Class C – protection to steeply sloping surfaces up to 60 degrees.
The safety at height solutions provider must not only deliver high performance systems, but also support the needs of each project at every stage.
