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.


As shown to the left, a toeboard system is required due to the fall-off from the edge of the platform.

For the toeboard system to be compliant in the above scenario;

• 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
