BlueWater, the original creators of the collapsible rooftop guardrail, Stealthrail

The StealthRail folding guardrail is a collapsible, portable guardrail and safety rail system. Designed with a one-way pivot assembly, the guardrail folds when used on a surface and does not exceed a vertical plane when in the upright position. A detent pin on each pivot assembly locks the safety guard rail in the upright position. When the system is in its folded position, there are clean sightlines from ground level and the building’s architectural integrity is preserved.

  • Requires no penetrations in substrates for installation
  • Save money over an engineered lifeline system
  • Rails come in 3’, 3-1/2’, 4’, 5’, 7-1/2’ and 10’
  • Standard tough UV yellow powder coat finish; Other colors and galvanized finishes are available
  • Rails can be mounted in infinite positions
  • Use the system around mechanicals or for perimeter protection
  • Certified test results are available
  • Exceeds OSHA Regulation 1910.23, (Standards – 29 CFR) 1926.501 and 1926.502
The StealthRail GuardRail System provides clean site lines and preserves the architectural integrity of your building, while offering perimeter passive fall

Rail sections are constructed ofF5/8" inch steel tubing. The rails secure to 108 pound cast iron bases that have four ports, allowing the rails to be placed in infinite positions. Each section is collapsible and the one-way pivot assembly allows the rails to fold down after rooftop work has been completed. When the bases are installed in a run witha 900 return on eachend, the combined mass and the geometry of installation creates an OSHA compliant barrier for roof edge protection.

The StealthRail requires no penetration to the roof surface when installed.
