Roof Access Walkway Systems

The Genesis Range

Combining our Industrial Range of products to create a Roof Access Walkway System, for an all-in-one solution.

In Our Element

Manufactured from 6063 T4 / T6 Aluminium to the BS EN 755 standard series


Conforms to BS EN 516:2006 installations for roof access, walkways, treads and steps.


A1 Fire Rated and fully compliant with BS EN 13501-1

Access walkway panels are lightweight for ease of handling yet strong in construction with a unique swage-locked design.



Environmentally Friendly

100% recyclability manufactured from 77% recycled aluminium

Superior Slip Resistance

Using Aluminium anti-slip surfaces in our industrial flooring systems

Non-Penetrative Fixing

All our walkway systems use a unique clamp so no drilling is needed

Swage-Locked Design

50-tonne hydraulic press compressing the swage bars to lock the load-bearing bars in place

Roof Access

We offer two main systems for your all-in-one Genesis Roof Walkway system, the Gensis Roof Access Walkway System and the Quickfix Roof Access Walkway System. The Genesis system can pitch all the way up to ten degrees making it supreme for the most demanding environments. Whereas our Quickfix system is ideal for any walkway below a five-degree pitch.



All our access walkway grilles provide safe, secure and long-term access solutions for general access, cleaning and maintenance of building exteriors and roofs. All our panels are lightweight for ease of handling yet strong in construction, with a unique swage-locked design which provides high structural efficiency and an impressive load-bearing capacity. A serrated surface can be specified for the highest slip resistance. Walkways are available with integral handrail systems on one or both sides.

Standing Seam Clip
Trapezoidal Clip

N-I BAR aluminium alloy decking panels incorporating the swage locking principle for a handsome, lightweight and structurally efficient open grille panel.

Flat Bar utilises traditional rectangular load-bearing bars secured into position by the swage locking process. The rectangular load bars are available in 3.2mm and 4.8 widths.

The Serrated panels on Paldek provide a positive anti-slip surface across the entire surface to suit the most demanding of situations.

Our Serrated Flat Bar achieved the highest rating when tested for slip resistance. To achieve this the flooring surface must maintain a non-slip condition at an angle in excess of 35°.

Quickfix’s dual action fixing clamp provides a fast and efficient installation method that saves times and money spent on site. (Only works with the Quickfix system)

Genesis Walkways

Genesis Walkways provide exceptional technical performance and suitability for pitches of up to 10 degrees. Steeper pitches can be accommodated subject to roof design. Our original roof access walkway, Genesis has been designed to adapt to the most demanding structural and environmental conditions with high technical capability and suitability for installation on roof pitches of the higher gradient.



Genesis can be clamped to the roof profile where feasible without penetration of the sheeting. Aluminium extrusions provide a high-quality, aesthetically pleasing finish, often difficult to achieve with other materials. Anodising or powder coating options are available to make a feature of the panels. Genesis’ handrail is unique as it can act as a stand-alone balustrade as well as part of a walkway system.

150mm kicking plate is available

Easy to cut on site

Non-penetrative fixing system

Available for roof pitches up to 10° as standard

Quickfix Walkways

When the full technical capabilities of the Genesis aluminium system are not required, the Quickfix system provides a highly cost-effective alternative enjoying many of the same qualities.

With swage, frame and serrated load bars in aluminium alloy, Quickfix is very similar in appearance to Genesis, providing aesthetic consistency in schemes where both systems are used. The handrail system has been designed to be an integral element, which is attached to the edge of the walkway. This system is also available with a specially designed ‘T’ edging strip at the end of longer panels, which clearly defines changes of direction.

Benefits of Quickfix

Panels in lengths for easy handling

Made from 100% recyclable materials

Easy to cut on site

Non-penetrative fixing system

Available for roof pitches up to 5°

Linedek Handrail for structural efficiency

Suitable for most standing seam roofs

Why use Aluminium?
Aluminium is a great building material for many reasons: it provides maintenance-free durability and is also non-toxic, corrosive-free, non­combustible and 100% recyclable - a particularly useful feature for our Genesis industrial system designed for eco-friendly performance in the harshest environments. The permanent finish of neaco's nylon powder coating - a standard specification on most Spectrum systems - provides smooth, clean lines for comfortable touch and high aesthetic value. It's also worth noting that our stainless steel systems provide many similar benefits.
Do neaco install the product as well as supply it?
Yes, we provide a full installation service in addition to technical support and consultation throughout the specification process. Our team of experts is always on hand to assist at every stage.
Do neaco offer bespoke solutions?
Yes, absolutely. Over the years we have worked with numerous architects and designers to incorporate bespoke features outside of our standard specifications, including light fittings to the top of stanchions, etched designs to glass infills and structural glass installed at unusual angles. We pride ourselves on the flexibility and adaptability of our technical support services, so please feel free to discuss your particular requirements with one of our team.
