The weathering cap for fall protection posts sits over the top of the post forming a “lid” to assist in the weatherproofing of the building.
Use of the Ascent weathering cap
Following the initial installation of the Ascent fall protection posts, the roofing contractor will then install the roof covering which he will dress up the Ascent post. The weathering cap will then be installed by the fall protection installer company as he wires up his system. The cap is secured in place with the set screw, fitted with both a Nylon & Neoprene washer used to secure the fall protection system top component.
