Description

Our Tank & Water Reservoir Anchor is designed to be installed without penetrating the tank surface through drilling or welding. The OSHA compliant anchor clamps against tank and water reservoir vent and can be set to provide fall arrest or fall restraint safety.

The Tank Anchor system can accommodate tank or reservoir vents from 18″ to 48″ in diameter. The basic system comprises of one each: anchor, trolley, cable grab with lifeline, and shock absorbing lanyard. Custom size units are available.

FALL PROTECTION CHALLENGE

Water tanks and reservoirs require regular maintenance and inspection work that exposes the workers to safety hazards such as slippery surfaces to leading edges. Installing a safety system that may penetrate the surface of the tank may void warranty on the coating or result in contamination.

FALL PROTECTION SOLUTION

CAI’s Tank Fall Protection Anchor is designed to work without compromising the structural integrity of your tank or water reservoir. The tank fall arrest anchor will clamp around the center vent without requiring any penetration or welding. The round tank ring provides the user with 360 degrees of fall protection around the tank and full access to the entire top surface of the tank.

Features & Benefits

Tank & Water Reservoir Anchor

EASY TO INSTALL

The Tank Fall Protection Anchor system ships fully fabricated and assembled to maintain control on quality and safety. This approach also helps to reduce the field installation time. You also do not have to use any special tools for the install.

PROTECTING THE TANK RESERVOIR

At every point where the aluminum fall protection system comes in contact with the tank or water reservoir we provide a dielectric protective cover. This feature is to preserve the protective coating on the tank’s surface.

RUGGED CONSTRUCTION

We recognize that the tank fall protection system needs to survive outdoors in the elements. The reservoir fall protection system is built to survive with system all aluminum framework and stainless steel hardware.

NON-PENETRATING

The Tank Fall Protection Anchor will clamp around the center vent without requiring any penetration or welding to the tank’s surface. This approach avoids any possible damage to the tank outer coating or contamination of the contents.

ADJUSTABLE

The threaded stainless steel rods allows the adjustment of the clamps to the diameter of the vent. Vent diameter can vary from 18″ to 48″. The legs are also adjustable to match the slope on the tank.

100% FALL PROTECTION

All the components make up the Tank Fall protection anchor system for providing accessibility and fall protection.

Tank Ring Anchor System - 3D Reference

Cable Lifeline – The cable lifeline extends to the point of entry at the top of the reservoir. User will tie-off by the entry point and remain tied off while on top of the tank.

Full Body Harness & Shock Absorbing Lanyard – A shock absorbing lanyard suspended from the dorsal D-ring of the full body harness is connected to the cable grab. In the event of a fall the shock absorbing lanyard and harness will reduce the fall impact load on the body.

Trolley & Tank Vent Ring Anchor – The trolley glides around the anchor track to provide the user with 360 degrees of accessibility and fall protection around the tank.
