OSHA FALL PROTECTION


WASCO FALL PROTECTION UNITS COMPLY WITH OSHA FALL PROTECTION REGULATIONS
Fall protection was established by OSHA to provide a safe and healthful working environment and to limit falls from workers or tools from heights of 6’ or greater. OSHA regulations state that every skylight must be guarded by a standard skylight screen or fixed railing system that is capable of withstanding a load of at least 200 pounds.

Wasco fall protection units are engineered to resist a 775 ft. lb. impact without the use of metal grids or screens, providing outstanding impact-resistant safety that complies with and exceeds OSHA fall protection regulations.

  • Available in both curb-mount and deck-mount configurations.
  • Provided with impact modified acrylic double domes or pyramids depending on size required.
  • Offered in various glazing color combinations.

Unit skylight safety screens are also available for permanent or temporary protection.

  • 0.19” gage 4” x 4” welded wire mesh
  • Meets the intent of OSHA 29CFR 1910.23
  • Adjustment range of 4” in width for easy installation
  • Allows to be installed with no penetration of skylight
 

SMOKE VENTS


Standard Shrink-Out Smoke Vents (PSO/PSOS)
Wasco’s Pyrodome® Shrink-Out Smoke Vents are gravity operated acrylic double domes designed to automatically shrink and fall out in the event of a fire. These units are generally used when buildings have no sprinkler system or they employ a standard sprinkler system designed to operate at 165 degrees.

ESFR Rated Shrink-Out Smoke Vents (PSOFR/PSOSFR)
Wasco’s “FR” Pyrodome® Shrink-Out Smoke Vents are gravity operated acrylic double domes designed to automatically shrink and fall out in the event of a fire. These units are equipped with a fusible link activated release mechanism which will ensure the unit does not activate prior to reaching the fusible link temperature. These units are designed for use with an ESFR (Early Suppression, Fast Response) sprinkler system.

 

FIBER OPTIC DAYLIGHTING


NATURAL, HEALTHY SUNLIGHT… EVEN 4 FLOORS BELOW!

The Parans system can track the sun over the full day, using every hour of sun. Only the visual part of the light spectrum is transported inside – IR and UV radiation are filtered out. That means that much of the heat energy in the solar radiation is blocked and the Parans light does not fade colours and harm materials like UV radiation does. The Parans SP3 consists of a receiver and optical fibre cabling.

The receiver follows the sun over the day to collect its light. Specially designed optical lenses capture and concentrate the optimal amount of sunlight into the Parans cable for immediate transfer to the inside of the building. Our system transports the precious sunlight to indoor spaces that would otherwise be impossible to reach.

The intelligent Parans system makes the installation simple, as it comes pre-programmed from the factory. On site the unit is fastened, cables are ducted to the inside luminaires, roof and walls are resealed, and the system is ready to be powered. Installation is rather simple and the steps are comparable to installing a satellite dish, but always read the Installation Manual before installing the products!

To each Parans receiver, six solar cables are attached. There are four standard lengths at 16, 32, 50 or 65 feet meaning that light can be brought two, three, even four floors down. The cables have very good ability to transport light while retaining the full spectrum of sunlight. The cables are thin and flexible, and can transport light both vertically and horisontally, occupying very little space.

Each cable gives one point light and should be connected to our luminaires – L1 Luminaire, L2 Hybrid, L2 Pure and L3 Spotlight.
