Technical Specification


VersiRail is a freestanding or fixed guardrail system offering collective fall protection and can be used for:

protection against falls from height,
access protection,
perimeter protection,
marking out walkways.

VersiRail is superior to its competitors not only in its appearance, weight, ease of installation but also the quality of its engineering. VersiRail is available directly from Latchways or through our nationwide installer base. To complement the quality product range, Latchways ensures the level of customer service they provide is second to none and go one step further by offering a bespoke free system design service to ensure you are able to make the most of VersiRail’s unique characteristics.

VersiRail is primarily a practical solution providing collective fall protection but, due to its attractiveness and quality finish, can also be viewed as an architectural feature on a building.

VersiRail is offered in:

Four style options (curved, inclined, straight and folding (freestanding only)
Four fixing options (Slab mounting plate, wall mounting plate, Z-Type mounting plate, parapet mounting plate)
Three finishes (natural, polished or powder coated to a RAL colour) ensuring you can tailor the system to match your requirements and surroundings.

VersiRail is not only practical but pleasing to the eye.

VersiRail is manufactured in aluminium which compared to other competing systems, that are manufactured from galvanised steel, is roughly 1/3 of the density.

This weight difference ensures that VersiRail is manoeuvrable and easy to handle at the time of installation.

VersiRail is 30% lighter compared to traditional steel systems.
Ease of Installation

The weight difference between VersiRail’s aluminium components and the competing steel systems, ensures that VersiRail is a far more efficient system to install.

When comparing the time taken to move handrail tubes from ground to rooftop, one man is able to lift 18 m of VersiRail handrail at one time compared to only 3 m of the other handrails systems.

VersiRail is 5.6 times quicker to install compared to traditional steel systems.
Quality of engineering

VersiRail has been fully tested to EN 13374 at 2 m spacings for the freestanding system and to EN 14122-3 at 1.5 m spacings for the fixed system. The quality of material and finish on VersiRail is critical to its durability.

VersiRail does not require annual inspection.
