Diversified Announces Launch of New E-Commerce Website

Most of our regular customers associate Diversified Fall Protection with highly engineered, application specific fall protection systems.  We’ve spent the better part of 20 years designing, fabricating, and installing fall protection systems for the facilities all over the world.  With this said, there are times when an engineered fall protection system isn’t the best solution.  If you want some good examples,  look no further than your rooftop.  The rooftops found in industrial parks are dotted with HVAC equipment, air handling systems, roof hatches, elevation changes, and unprotected leading edges.  Many of these rooftop areas present fall hazards that can be mitigated with the use of guardrail or a safety railing system.


Visit for all of your safety railing needs.

For a number of years, we have promoted our free-standing LORGUARD guardrail system on the Diversified Fall Protection website.  Since we receive numerous requests for pricing on our rooftop safety railing systems, we decided to create a new e-commerce enabled website so our customers can purchase online.  In addition to portable guardrail, the site also features our LORGATE loading dock safety gate system.

Check-out is convenient…and our site even calculates your freight charges.  Whether you simply need preliminary pricing information for budgetary purposes or you are ready to purchase today, remember to make our new website your one-stop-shop for all your rooftop and loading dock safety railing needs.
