Counterweight Portable Roof Anchor
SPECIALIZED LOAD DISTRIBUTING DESIGN
At the heart of the non-penetrating anchor system is a force absorbing tip over post. The tip over post is contained within an anchor device consisting of a galvanized steel frame and galvanized steel weights bolted in a circular formation onto rubber coated base weights. In the event of a fall, the tip over post deploys to limit the load on the system while the weights simultaneously create a friction anchor between the unit and the roof surface.
Installation of the anchor system is simple, fast and efficient. Due to its modular design, the installer will never have to lift more than 50 lbs. In some applications, the entire anchor system can be lifted (by forklift or crane) into place for instant set-up and use.
SUITABLE FOR MOST ROOF TYPES
The roof anchor has been tested and approved for use on concrete, single ply membrane, bitumen membrane, asphalt-sanded, asphalt-stone chipped and steel roof profiles. If the roofing profile which you have selected falls outside the current range, please contact CAI Safety for further advice.
SAFE AND SECURE ANCHOR
Each non-penetrating anchor can be used to protect one user in fall arrest or fall restraint mode. After set-up, simply attach your shock absorbing lanyard, leading edge, self retracting lifeline or rope grab and you are ready to go.
When it is not practical to install a fixed anchor post the roof anchor is an ideal solution. Without penetrating the roof or surface assemble the anchor at least eight (8) feet from the leading edges and simply tie-off with an approved device to work safely and efficiently. The savings in fixing roof leaks or voided roof warranties makes the counterweight anchor a popular roof fall protection choice.
