Why use a Deadweight Anchor?

Falls are the leading cause of death on construction sites, and with the new, tighter OSHA regulations for residential construction which took effect on September 15, 2012, every roof worker needs proper fall protection. The freestanding counterweight anchor provides a tie-off point for personnel performing work on flat roofs or structures. It is non-penetrating to eliminate damage to the working surface, and assembles from sixteen separate, easy-to-carry counterweights, allowing the installer to never have to lift more than 45 pounds while installing the anchor.

Non-Penetrating Design

Freestanding Counterweight Anchors are placed on top of the working surface. Weighted bases are added to rubber trays that are connected to a shock absorbing tie-off post. The anchor's freestanding design installs without penetrating the roof, saving valuable time and money. Also, the design reduces the possibility of roof leaks, voided roof warranties and surface damage.

Specialized Load Distributing Design

This anchor incorporates a revolutionary shock absorbing system called LEAP™. The LEAP™ post (with tie-off point) works to absorb the energy created in the event of a fall so that the worker attached to it is not the one absorbing the force and energy of the fall. This specialized design provides added safety to the attached worker and better distributes the forces to the anchor and structure. By limiting and distributing the forces this way, not only is the worker safer but also the integrity of the roof is preserved.
