The Buck RFP™

Your one-stop solution for fall protection on a roof.

Buckingham has been approached by a number of utilities and contractors to address fall protection for those working on a roof or off a ladder at a customer’s home.

The Buckingham Rooftop Fall Protection Kit provides a temporary vertical lifeline for accessing elevated work areas from a portable ladder.

This Patent Pending system was developed hand-in-hand with Duke Energy and allows the user to set a lifeline and re-direct lines from the ground which keep the user 100% fall protected while ascending a ladder, working on a ladder, and descending a ladder.

Today, the Buckingham Rooftop Fall Protection Kit is the only solution of its kind on the market.

    RFPREDIRECT Rooftop Re-Direct Kit

    Where a suitable anchor isn’t readily available or maybe a roof that exposes the user to a swing fall – we have also developed a Re-Direct and Load-Sharing application that builds on the Basic Kit above and gives you a variety of options to deal with the more quirky situations.
     

    Situations Include


    • Chance of the lifeline sliding off peak or edge
    • Questionable anchorage requiring the user to share load between multiple anchors

    Depending on the situation the user encounters, the load sharing/re-direct system provides the user with the ability to improvise with the basic system and create a system where you can share multiple anchors and also protect against a potential swing fall.
