ROOFTOP WALKWAYS, WORK PLATFORMS, AND CROSSOVER PLATFORM SYSTEMS

PROTECT YOUR ROOF...AND KEEP YOUR TEAM SAFE

We understand the need to keep workers safe along with protecting the roof below them. This is why we offer Unistrut rooftop walkway systems, work platforms, and crossover systems that:

  • Provide a safe walkway for rooftop traffic
  • Protect the roof from foot traffic
  • Resist weather in either galvanized steel or aluminum finish
  • Attach to all metal standing seam roofs, including metric sizes

Our systems do not:

  • Penetrate rooftop surface (except on rib roofs)
  • Trap water or disappear in snow like rubber pads
  • Rot or disintegrate like wood or patio blocks

The tables below contain downloadable standard design detail drawings for typical Unistrut rooftop walkway applications.

Please Note: Drawings below are generic details to show design intent only. The drawings will help you gain a better understanding of engineered rooftop walkway design, but they are not intended for construction purposes because each system is application specific.

Your rooftop walkway system will likely include sections that are less than 10′ in length, and we may need to make modifications to an existing design to accommodate mechanical systems such as rooftop HVAC units, vent stacks, etc. Contact Unistrut Service Company for pricing on site specific engineered system drawings.

EASY INSTALLATION TO GET YOU BACK TO WORK QUICKLY

Unistrut rooftop walkway systemsaccess platforms, and crossover systems are available as factory assembled systems (for built-up, membrane and urethane foam systems only) or as assemble-on-site components. Our designs are easy to assemble and install by one or two workers without the use of special tools, and in most cases, without using hoists, or cranes.  For standing seam roofs, each of our rooftop systems feature S-5! clamps to ensure a strong and safe, yet non-penetrating connection that won't harm your roof or void your warranty.

On standing-seam metal roofs, workers of all sizes can walk safely on the anti-skid surface without causing seam distortion, “dishing”, or harmful stress to the roofing panels. We also offer rubber puck bases for non-standing seam applications. Each system is built with lightweight metal grating and features special anchoring hardware requiring no roof penetration. Best of all, rooftop walkway systems and work platforms from Unistrut Service Company are versatile and adapt to virtually any roofing system.
