Roof Safety. Why do I care so much? Why should you?
Years ago, I never worried about my own safety while roof walking. I never thought about what repercussions an accident could have on me, my future or my family. And what about the homeowner and family who was left to deal with the aftermath of the tragedy which happened at their home?
Maybe I was lucky because I was “experienced”. My dad was a well-seasoned roofer and he was not lucky. He slipped on a roof, slid off and hit the ground. Hard. He did not go home that day. The fall ended his life.
I have spent close to 50 years in the construction industry to date. Thankfully I am not the risk-taking kid I once was. I have realized that even the most experienced adjusters, roofers and craftsmen could become victims of roof related accidents in the blink of an eye. These tragedies either end or severely impact their life as well as the lives of their families.
I invented SteepGear to minimize the alarming number of injuries and deaths due to falls from roofs. Determined to design a product for everyone from the roofing professional to the homeowner putting up Christmas lights or cleaning out gutters, I knew the product had to be comfortable, durable and easy to wear.
Years of testing multiple prototypes on various roofing surfaces went by before I was satisfied with the final product and began selling the well-known “sticky shorts” followed by our full and free finger sticky gloves and all-day roof pants.
We are continuously testing new products and ideas as our SteepGear Safety Wear line continues to expand and bring further safety awareness to the industry.

Fighting Gravity with FrictionTM
These patented products are developed to reduce the sliding risk between the wearer and the steep sloped surface. We have created a rugged line of clothing to simply slip on over existing clothing, wear all day or maybe you need all purpose gloves to add to your safety plan.
Whether it’s metal, wood, composition or tile roof material, underlayment, plywood or just about any other surface, this clothing will help slow your descent and give you time to regain your balance and footing.
The concept seems simple but as many of you know, it has taken years to perfect our patented products that allow our customers to have a safe, comfortable and productive work day.
