Fast and easy protection
Do you want to eliminate the risk of cuts and the need for rescue operations when falling onto a skylight dome? Then the ready-to-use transparent KEMPEROL FALLSTOP Surfacing is the right choice for you. It provides you with an easy, fast and cost-efficient fall-through protection solution for already installed common skylight domes.
By the way: Sales and production areas do not have to be closed off, as surfacing activities can take place during ongoing operation.
Tested fall-through protection
The name says it all and is an absolute requirement:
KEMPEROL FALLSTOP is the name of a new surfacing system that enhances the safety of already installed skylight domes, thus helping to prevent potentially fatal accidents caused by falling through skylights.
The transparent surfacing has been fully tested to specification GS BAU 18. KEMPEROL FALLSTOP displays the test mark of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGVU) and the Austrian General Accident Insurance Institution (AUVA).
Good to know
Skylight domes and rooflights must provide fall-through protection – except in the structural cases referred to in Section 41 (2) of the Building Regulation for North Rhine-Westphalia and Section 7 (3) (2.1) of the Working Guideline.
Fall-through protection can also be achieved at a later date by surfacing with KEMPEROL FALLSTOP.
Hail resistance increased by up to 3 classes
KEMPEROL FALLSTOP passed the “simulated hailstorm test using ice-pellets” with flying colours. Skylights domes from various manufacturers were tested. Depending on the model and type of skylight dome, the hail resistance increases by up to 3 classes. KEMPEROL FALLSTOP thus helps to reduce property damage and business interruption losses. KEMPEROL FALLSTOP surfaced skylight domes enhance protection against water damage for production plants, engineering workshops, garages and offices.
Fire class E and no flaming droplets
According to DIN EN 13501-1, KEMPEROL FALLSTOP meets all the requirements of fire class E; this corresponds to the German building authority designation “normal flammability”. It was also tested whether KEMPEROL FALLSTOP would form flaming droplets in the event of a fire. The test results show that there are no flaming droplets.
Easy and cost-effective application
Besides other safety measures, KEMPEROL FALLSTOP is a simple and cost-effective alternative for the subsequent protection of skylight domes. The safety measures can be taken during ongoing operations; it is not necessary to block off sales and production areas.
The single-component, ready-to-use, polyurethane-based surfacing is UV and weather resistant, flexible and shockproof. Measurements showed that the bluish transparent surfacing only reduced the level of light transmission by approx. 4.5%.
The KEMPEROL FALLSTOP warranty
KEMPEROL FALLSTOP comes with a 5+5+5 year warranty. Please refer to the warranty conditions for surfacing skylight domes with KEMPEROL FALLSTOP for the exact conditions. On the recommendation of experts, the Central Association of German Roofing Contractors and the Employers’ Liability Insurance Association of the Construction Industry (BG Bau), we introduced a documentation requirement at the beginning of 2015. Through professional and legally secure handling, we have managed to strengthen the trust in KEMPEROL FALLSTOP and give you, our customers, the security you need.
A 5+5 year warranty is given to all customers who submit the fully completed KEMPEROL FALLSTOP construction site form for 5+5 years to our Technical/Warranty department – provided that professional application can be assured on the basis of this form. We will then send you a building-specific certificate “5+5 year warranty” for the developer. The KEMPEROL FALLSTOP construction site form for 5+5 years can be found under Downloads. Without the construction site form, the prescribed warranty period naturally applies.
All customers receive a further 5 year warranty if the following points are met:
- The warranty certificate 5+5 years has been issued.
- Proof of annual maintenance, according to the warranty terms and conditions, has been provided to the Warranty department.
- Each skylight dome surfaced with KEMPEROL FALLSTOP is inspected by a KEMPER SYSTEM employee and the contractor.
- The skylight domes are undamaged.
- New surfacing is applied to the skylight dome, including the green KEMPEROL FALLSTOP seal.
- The completed construction site form for the KEMPEROL FALLSTOP 5+5+5 year warranty has been provided.
- A maintenance contract has been concluded.

Effective calculation is crucial for success
There are things that make optimised economic performance easier – our quantity calculator is without doubt one of them. It is so easy: Simply select a product or system structure and specify the size of the surface. And you will be told the exact amount required for the job.
All quantities and times are approximate and without guarantee. For color specifications, absolute RAL match can not be guaranteed.
