Abseil Anchor Posts

Abseil Anchor Posts

Ascent Abseil Access Anchor Posts. 

We manufacture Abseil Access Anchor posts in both Mild steel (galvanised) and Stainless Steel in accordance with the requirements of BS 7985:2013 Code of Practice for the use of rope access methods for industrial purposes and the IRATA International Code of Practice for Industrial rope access 2013. 

The posts are designed such that they can be used in conjunction with appropriate eyebolts in the configurations as shown below;

Step Unit
A pair of posts with eyebolts (unlinked) each eyebolt with a rated static strength of 15kN.
Safety Ladders
A pair of posts with eyebolts (linked) each eyebolt with a rated static strength of 15kN.
CE Marked Fabrications
A pair of posts each with a pair of eyebolts (linked) each eyebolt with a rated static strength of 10 or 12 kN.

The purpose of using a structural anchor post is to raise the eyebolts above the structural roof level, often raising it above the roof insulation, roof slabs, green roof or above the height of an adjacent roof parapet or upstand.

What We Do

Wherever roof access is required, designers are tasked with creating a safe route to and from the place of work. Following the hierarchy of safety collective protection measures should always be considered above individual fall protection solutions.

D-marc is classed as a form of Collective Demarcation Protection in accordance with the HSE's hierarchy of risk management as set out within the Working at Height Regulations 2005 (WAHR). The WAHR 2005 Part 3 illustrates the use of a demarcation system as an "example of taking other additional suitable and sufficient measures to prevent a fall''. The demarcation system is to be placed a safe distance from the fall hazard (normally >2m). Health and Safety Roofwork HSG33 states that "where work is not done at the edge, demarcation barriers can be provided at a safe distance from the edge (usually at least 2 metres). e.g. work on an air-conditioning unit in the middle of a roof."
