Structural Anchor Posts

Ascent™ Structural Anchor Posts

The Ascent Fall protection post was the first product in our range. In the days when the load control of all fall protection systems was managed by the shock absorbers within the wire / cable system we were very busy making structural fall protection posts to take the load back to the structure of the building.

Whilst the development of “shock absorbing” posts has reduced our mass marketplace, we still produce structural anchor posts by the 1000’s each year to suit customer specific applications. The main areas where our posts are used are when the post is affixed directly to the Concrete slab or directly to the structural steelwork.

The Ascent Range of Posts includes;

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."
