Kee Cover has been designed specifically to protect those working on roofs with fragile roof lights and skylights.  The cover is modular in design and can be constructed quickly and easily while on the roof.  All Kee Cover components and mesh panels are hot dip galvanised for enhanced durability.   

The Kee Cover range features two models for use on trapezoidal and standing seam roofs. The Standard Model fixes virtually flat to the roof surface while the Raised Model is mounted above the skylight to give a greater distance between the mesh panel and the roof light in order to protect the roof light from damage in the event of a fall.

Both models are designed to allow light into the building hand have been tested in accordance with the ACR Red Book and BS EN 1873.
