GUARDRAIL INSTALLATION ON DISTINCT BOSTON BUILDING

Freestanding guardrail along roof edge

Partner: American Anchor

Country: United States of America

Solution: XSFlex Freestanding Guardrail

Located at the intersection of the Boston Financial District and the Waterfront and Seaport Districts the Boston Federal Reserve Building defines the Boston skyline. The 187 m (614 ft) tall building is the fifth tallest of Boston and has a distinct design that resembles a huge washboard. Completed in 1977 the office tower rises from a foot bridge that holds a distinctive opening near ground level.

Our partner American Anchor was asked to provide fall protection for the Federal Reserve Bank Building to provide a safe workplace at height for anyone needing access the roof. They chose to install 580 m (1900 ft) of non-penetrating, freestanding guardrail all along the roof edge. An advantage of this guardrail system is there is no drilling for installation. This means there is no risk of damaging the roof structure, or leakages. The freestanding guardrails are kept in place with counterweights.
