Various protection systems are used to protect workers working at high altitudes, on side facades or on flat roofs. Among others, there are quite expensive rope systems to make, but they can be replaced with cheaper fall protection devices in the form of anchorages. Check what they are and how we use them in practice when creating the maximum safe, “green” zones on the tops of various buildings.
What are anchor points?
Anchorages, also known as anchorages, anchor posts, or anchorages, are an integral part of the permanent belay system. They are intended for permanent installation on a load-bearing structure, e.g. roof or facade. The individual elements of the fall protection system are used to ensure that the worker: mountaineer or service technician, attaches to the anchoring point and thus significantly reduces the risk of a tragic fall from a height.
For the proper operation of the entire belay system, which protects employees working on the roofs of buildings against falling, the type of belay points used and their number is important. For our part, we advise you not to limit it, because sometimes it happens that the employee must perform work in an unsecured space. The insufficient number of safety posts means that we cannot design a completely safe roof space or on the side facade of a building.
Types of anchorages
In our business, we use various types of anchorages, but they are all designed to create the widest, green safe zone on the roof or side wall of a building. This is not always possible, but we urge investors to increase the budget for designing and creating a safety system so that employees who are to work at height in the future will be reliably protected from falling.
There are several types of anchorages that we can offer our clients to create a fall protection system. We include single anchor points:
- with a placard, intended for attachment directly to the base plate or to the side structure; they are suitable for fixing to roof tiles or to a reinforced concrete ceiling;
- with a chemical connection to the concrete, in the form of a slab or plaque, which is mounted to the load-bearing structure of the building with a screw;
- using connection with a plaque, screw and base plate, which are used when mounted to the supporting structure by insulating the building.
How do we install belay points?
- reinforced concrete,
- side wall of the facade.
