Types of Anchors

Your choice of anchor depends on the type of work being done.

Anchorages are sold by what they connect to (general/all purpose), whether they are fixed or mobile, and whether they are permanent or portable.

They all must provide a secure point of attachment for a complete personal fall arrest system.

The RoofSafe™ Cable System has been designed to complement the RoofSafe Anchor product range for roof fall protection, taking advantage of the low system loads generated in the event of a fall. This has enabled 3M Fall Protection to value engineer its 8mm cable system and deliver the same high standard of quality and functionality that is found in all of our roof fall protection products, but for a much more competitive price. This makes comprehensive roof fall protection safety very affordable and allows companies to more effectively mitigate workplace risk and height safety. The RoofSafe™ Cable Systems can span up to 12m between anchors and provides continuous hands free access for the user of the roof fall protection system. The roof fall protection system can be used by multiple workers, providing system calculations carried out using our system design software concur.

RoofSafe™ Cable System components include end anchors, intermediate cable supports, variable cable supports and corner cable supports to allow maximum flexibility in roof fall protection system designs and ensure workers have uncompromised access for all aspects of roof inspection and maintenance. Components, including the 8mm wire rope are made from quality 316 stainless steel. All fabricated parts are further enhanced by electro-polishing to provide strong resistance to corrosion and a long service life for the roof fall protection system.
