Benefits of the Roofwalk Rooftop Walkways
Protect the roof from foot traffic
Roofwalk walkways provide a clearly defined, safe walking surface for service technicians or maintenance personnel. The roof access walkway will supply access to critical equipment, while keeping employees off the roof.
The standard Unistrut roof walkway finish is our weather-resistant, electro-galvanized finish. For harsher environments such as coastal environments, Roofwalks are available in Unistrut Defender, aluminum, or stainless steel.
Customized designs available
The Unistrut supports for the Roofwalk systems can be customized to match your roof’s conditions. Whether you want an elevated walkway on a pitched roof or a diagonal run across a standing seam roof, Unistrut has the capacity to design a unique roof walkway system for your building.
Prefabricated components available
Unistrut Roofwalks are designed with repeatable components that can be fabricated in our factory and shipped to the job site kitted and tagged for easy on-site assembly.
Unistrut rooftop walkway systems have several key features to keep employees safe while on the roof. The anti-skid surface of United Interlock Grating prevents slippage. The handrails (available on one side or both-sides) will prevent falls and keep workers away from the edges of the roof. The kick plate will help prevent tools or hardware from falling off the walkway or roof.
No roof penetration required
The standard standing seam Roofwalks are designed with connection hardware that attach the roof access walkway to the standing seam ribs. The only exception to our “no penetration” policy is panel rib roof type which have no standing seams.
Metal Roof Walkway Systems for Standing Seam Roofs
Unistrut Midwest offers the Roofwalk System for many standard brands of metal standing seam roofing. Our full complement of connection hardware and support plates allow Unistrut walkways to run parallel, perpendicular, or even diagonal to the standing seams. The standard Unistrut grating planks are 18 ga and available in 6”, 9”, or 12” widths. All Unistrut rooftop walkway systems are available with handrail, kick plate, or YellowGate Safety Gates by request!
