Read all about roof anchors, and explore the roof anchors offered by Safe Keeper!
Roof anchors are an integral part of fall protection systems for those working at heights. As the name implies, roof anchors are attached to a roof to operate as the anchor point for a lanyard and harness to keep workers from approaching fall hazards. There are many different kinds of roof anchors and accompanying lanyard and harness combinations, each suited to different roofs types. Explore different types of roof anchors, and see the roof anchors offered by Safe Keeper.
Types of Roof Anchors
There are many different types of roof anchors in the market, each designed for its unique application. There are anchors for working on wood, steel, concrete, and pipe surfaces, and there are anchors specifically designed for installation on wood, metal, or concrete surfaces. Portable deadweight anchors are ideal for use when no fixed anchors are available, and it is not possible to install fixed anchors to the building. Similarly, a roof clamp or a two-way anchor works best on a standing seam roof.
Each roof anchor and each working at heights situation will require a different style of lanyard and harness combination.
