The new and unique lightweight bases incorporate ergonomic handles, four rail receptacles and built-in toe-board brackets that allow infinite configurations with no additional components required. In addition, a rubber pad on the bottom of each base provides skid resistance and surface protection, while splice kit, roof hatch and swing gate accessories provide added versatility. Installation of the Portable Guardrail System is quick and easy with no special tools required. Simply position the bases, insert the guardrail sections into the bases and tighten the set screws to secure in place. Visit capitalsafety.com for more information.
