Toeboard - Why do I need it?

Toeboard - Why do I need it?

Toeboard is required on a railing whenever it would be potentially hazardous for an object to fall from the edge. Ask this basic question: "If my hammer were to fall at this edge, could it hit a person or any dangerous machinery?" If "yes", you need toeboard. 

Toeboard Compliance for AS 1657 Applications

A toeboard system is to be installed on walkways where;

  • there is no permanent structure with 10mm of the edge
  • an object could fall to where persons have access to the area below the walkway.

 For a toeboard system to be compliant;

  • it must have a gap no greater than 10mm between the underside of the toeboard and the walkway
  • the toeboard shall not be less than 100mm above the floor.
