AV Birch Ltd has previously provided a wide variety of carriage roof access systems. Historically the most popular of these has been the folding roof guardrail system which provides a safe enclosed area on the carriage roof.

Draw bridge platforms are used to infill the gap between the access tower and the roof of the carriage. Easily assembled and operated by two men, the folding roof guardrail system offers an inexpensive solution to carriage roof access.
