HOW DO YOU ATTACH THE RAPTORRAIL™ TO THE ROOF/SURFACE?
The RaptorRail™ is attached using one of two methods. The first being for low edge applications, this application will require the use of mechanical fastening the base to the roof/surface. The second is for parapet wall applications. The parapet clamp option uses the base to clamp the wall of the building thus requiring no mechanical fasteners.
WHY DOES THE POST BASE SWIVEL UP AND OUT OF THE WAY?
The RaptorRail™ is designed so that it can be installed and protecting users for the entire roofing project. The RaptorRail™ Base swivels up and out of the way for tear off and layup purposes.

Once work is done around the Base, swivel it back into position and refasten.
