What are the Roof Walkway Safety Standards in Australia?

At SAS Projects, we ensure that every height safety system we design and install meets and exceeds all relevant height safety standards. The Australian standards for walkways are laid out in AS1657:2018, which outlines the minimal requirements and exact measurements that a walkway system must comply with.

How much does it cost to have a roof walkway system installed?

The cost of our roof walkway systems depends on several factors, including the type of system (aluminium or FRP), the location of your building or work site, existing access, and the complexity of the installation process. Pricing also varies depending on whether the walkways are part of a total roof safety system, including guardrails, anchor points, or access ladders.
