FOR FALL PROTECTION AND ROPE ACCESS
Professional Installation and Certification of Anchor Points
What are Roof Anchor Points?
An anchor point is an essential element in height safety. Used for rope access, anchor points are a vital part of fall arrest systems on the roofs and facades of buildings and other high structures. Anchor points are used to firmly connect to things like lanyards, lifelines, and other forms of tie-off, which make sure a person does not fall when working at heights. Anchors on a roof vary from a simple D-ring connection to more complex roof anchor systems.
LEGISLATION: WORK HEALTH AND SAFETY ACT
Under the Work Health and Safety Act, anywhere that work is done within 2 meters of an unprotected edge that could result in a fall of 2 meters or more, fall protection is required. Anchor points are a crucial part of fall protection. Does your building comply with the new regulations? We can complete a comprehensive height safety audit for your Sydney-based organization.
HOW DO ANCHOR POINTS WORK?
Anchor points work in several ways to protect people and structures. For example:
- when someone falls, the anchor point/s absorbs the weight while retaining their strength
- anchor points reduce the load on the structure and the person attached to the anchor
POINTS ABSORB ENERGY
The new style of anchor points has a special energy-absorbing ability. This helps ensure people using them are safe in the event of an accident.
EASY TO INSTALL
Our anchor points are easy to install, causing minimal, if any, impact to the structure of a building. Anchor points can be attached to many different surfaces, including:
- metal roof sheeting
We use anchor points that are designed to blend in with existing buildings. We can place them so that they have minimal impact on the façade and visual appearance of a building or structure. Anchor points are small and difficult to see from far away.
