Weathering Cap

Ascent™ Fall Protection Post Weathering Cap

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.

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."
