A permanent, top fixed, energy absorbing roof anchor and horizontal lifeline safety system conforming to EN 795 2012, TS 16415 and BS 8610. Enables unhindered, continuous protection for workers engaged in roof maintenance and inspection activities.

The SpiraTech force management technology minimises and reorients fall loads to within tolerable limits, which enables the system to be installed on to a wide variety of modern roof types and to span up to 15 m between intermediate supports.

Features and benefits:

  • The anchor is multi-directional, and can activate and absorb energy regardless of the load orientation, which provides freedom and flexibility in system design.
  • The energy absorbing system reduces the overturning moment on the fixings by half, enabling the use of fewer fasteners. This reduces the number of roof penetrations, and becomes time and cost effective during installation.
  • The toggle fixing method for flat roofing systems speeds up installation and reduces thermal bridging (the amount of heat loss from a building).
  • Utilises marine grade alloys to reduce the overall weight and ensure safety during installation.
  • Modular, space-saving design.
  • In the unlikely event that the anchor is deployed, it is possible to remove the top module and replace it with a new one.
  • Designed to withstand a vertical pull test to 5 kN, ensuring structural integrity.
  • The base plate designs incorporate multiple fixing options.
  • Weather-proof design ensures the integrity of the building envelope.
  • Compliments both modern and older buildings, ensuring suitability for most projects.
  • The anchorage eye on the single point anchor will rotate to provide maximum functionality and safety in use.
  • The high quality, grade 1.4401 (316) stainless steel cable system offers freedom of movement, which helps the user to safely navigate corners and building contours.
  • The system spans up to 15 m (49.2 ft) between intermediate supports, minimising roof penetrations.
  • System performance can be calculated using custom design software, providing assured levels of safety. The system maintains a minimum safety factor of two for multiple users.
  • Manufactured in accordance with EN 795:2012, CEN/ TS 16415, OSHA, AUS/ NZ standards and has been tested to both EN 795:2012 Type A and C standards.

Applications:

Designed for top fix installation on to standing seam, secret fix, composite, membranous, and trapezoidal roof types. To be installed by a 3M™ DBI-SALA® approved installer.
