Overview: Rooftop Anchor, Inc. engineers, manufactures and installs suspended access and rooftop access fall protection systems for commercial, residential, industrial, military bases, sports venues, aircraft maintenance and mining applications. Our employees and network of representatives have extensive experience in fall protection safety in new construction and retrofit projects. In our experience we have found that the majority of work environments lack suitable fall protection systems for employees, window cleaning crews, maintenance teams and other contractors who work at height or risk a fall of 4 feet or greater.
Rooftop Anchor does not "sell" fall protection products. We are a full service partner that designs, manufactures, installs, and certifies a fall protection system that will make your work environment code compliant. Rooftop Anchor Inc. provides our clients with a complimentary design service to assist in the development of a compliant plan to meet all local codes and regulations. To use this free service send your project plans to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 800-411-3914
Our anchor products are ready to satisfy a multitude of fall protection requirements. Made of the highest quality U.S. certified carbon steel, all roof anchors are manufactured by certified welders and are designed and tested to withstand a minimum of 5,000 lb load. Roof anchors can be used for Rooftop Access and Suspended Access fall protection. Our expansive anchor product line meets or exceeds OSHA, ANSI and ASME safety standards and is compatible with new construction as well as retrofit projects.
The cast-in-place roof anchor is used on new construction projects. The forming contractor, prior to the concrete deck pour, sets each anchor in place. The cast-in-place anchor is available in a variety of heights.
Beam wrap anchors are utilized when there isnít a concrete roof deck and steel I-beams are the only structure available. The beam wrap is attached to the beam with four bolts and a steel underside plate. Beam wrap anchors are available in a variety of heights.
The bolt through anchor is used on roof or floor slabs with less than 8" of concrete. The anchor is attached through the deck with a stainless steel bolt, back plate, lock washer and nut. Bolt through anchors are available in a variety of heights.
Epoxy roof anchors are used on roof or floor slabs with at least 8 inches of concrete and are attached to the structure with four adhesive studs. Epoxy roof anchors are available in a variety of heights.
Attached to steel bar joist roof supports, open web joist anchors are attached to the open web joist with four bolts and an underside support plate. Supplemental bracing is added for increased strength. Open web joist anchors are available in a variety of heights..
Wall anchors offer identifiable engineered roof fall protection and are used when adequate structure is available above the roof deck. Some examples of this may be concrete parapet walls or exposed structural steel in a mechanical screen wall. Generally this allows for installations that don't require flashing or waterproofing.
Constructed of 3/4" 304 stainless round bar welded to a stainless steel faceplate, our wall anchors are designed to meet or exceed OHSA and ANSI/IWCA I-14 safety standards.
A fall arrest system alternative to single point anchors, horizontal lifelines are an option for when workers require horizontal mobility over an extended distance while operating close to a building's edge. Can be used on all rooftops, balconies, ledges, catwalks, and terraces as a fall arrest system.
Designed as a safety climbing system permanently installed to a ladder or vertical structure, the Rooftop Anchor vertical lifeline system incorporates a shuttle attachment device to allow continuous hands free climbing performance for the user and improved safety in the event of a fall or slip. Wide ranges of components are available to address installations in the most demanding environments.
Made of high-grade materials this system offers excellent functionality through its free flowing capability that can navigate corners and contours in building designs. Can be used for Suspended Access as well as Rooftop Access.
A quality extruded aluminum rail system that provides a high level of user safety combined with a discreet, aesthetically pleasing appearance. If offers excellent functionality through its free flowing attachment carriage with no brackets to pass over.
Provides a Suspended Access solution to safely reach difficult access points such as atriums and roof overhangs. Monorails can be used to support suspended power platforms, one-man cages, or bosun chairs.
Whether new construction or retrofit, davit systems are being used more and more on buildings of all heights to address protruding features on building facades such as shade louvers, eyebrows, sun shades, awnings, glass curtain walls and non-load bearing parapets. Davit systems allow suspension points to be located away from a building so that wire cables and safety lines do not load or damage architectural features.
Outrigger beams, like Davit Systems, provide a practical and efficient means for suspending suspended-powered platforms, cages and bosun's chairs. Outrigger beams are pinned directly to a roof anchor and are an ideal solution in situations where a building's roof structure cannot withstand the significant loads generated by davit assemblies.
Rigging Sleeves are designed to be a structural conduit that will allow proper rigging access when building features obstruct the areas that need to be safely reached. A variety of configurations are all designed to support both suspended-powered platforms and bosun chair use.
Designed to provide passive fall protection for workers, safety guardrails can be installed along open-sided walking surfaces, roofs, terraces, balconies, stairways, ramps, loading docks and landings located more than four feet above floor level.
Is Fall Protection necessary in our work environment?
OSHA fall protection regulation for general industry stipulates that if a worker is exposed to a fall of 4 feet or greater they must utilize some form of fall protection. The fall hazard can be on a top of a building, suspended from a building, near a skylight, near a loading dock, mining operation, on an airport jet-way or any other environment where a fall of 4 feet or greater is present.
What type of Fall Protection system do I need?
The type of system will depend on the environment and work to be performed. Fall protection systems are divided into fall restraint (prevents user from reaching a fall hazard), fall arrest (arrest fall of user in the event of a fall) and suspended access for operating a motorized platform or other suspended equipment. Rooftop Anchor can recommend the best code compliant system(s) for your situation.
