On flat roofs, there are often many different elevations in the building's roof construction. Fall protection railings must traverse these elevation changes in order to maintain total perimeter protection. At large elevation changes, it is better to terminate the railing run on the lower level and start a new railing run on the higher level. However, for smaller elevation changes of 8" or less, our Railing Height Adapter is a quick, simple alternative to ordering custom railing with one longer leg.
When to Use the Height Adapter:
Anytime there is an elevation change of 8" or less and the fall protection railings need to span an area, this adapter is inserted into the bottom of one of the railing legs and then inserted in the base plate, allowing for a continuous perimeter of railing without interruption in the railing run.

Look at the number of elevation changes on your project that are 8" or less and add (1) adapter per elevation change. That's it! Don't worry about making a mistake; we will give you a drawing so you can see exactly how this lays out.
