Fall Protection Anchors for Working at Height

Fall Protection Anchors for Working at Height

Fall protection needs to be fast and easy to setup to ensure it is used when it is needed. The right gear will only add a small amount of time to your site setup, stay out of your way while working, and be easy and intuitive to use. The first part of your Fall Protection System, the anchors, can be make or break for the efficiency of the system as a whole. Read more below about choosing the best anchors for your next job.

Temporary Anchors:

Ideal for small, one-off jobs with no existing anchors, or where the existing anchors are in a poor location for the work being undertaken.

Ferno Edgelok

Pictured above, the Ferno Edgelok is a temporary Fall Arrest Anchor compatible with most metal roof cladding. Installing the Edgelok is fast and easy. Identify your anchor point, unlock the anchor arm, tighten the L-Clamps and connect your Fall Arrest System. Leaving no penetrations, the Edgelok is perfect for inspection or occasional maintenance work on steel roofed structures.

Ferno Rooflok

When an anchor at the edge of a roof doesn't provide adequate coverage, look to the Ferno Rooflok. As with the Edgelok, the Rooflok is compatible with most cladding profiles and can be installed quickly and easily. The Rooflok is installed using existing roofing screw holes and additional FABLOK fixings or rivets. Upon removal, FABLOK fixings and roofing screws are reinstalled, sealing penetrations and ensuring performance of the roofing sheet. The Rooflok features a shock limiter and 360 degree swivel, providing fall protection for all areas surrounding the anchor installation.

Petzl Coeur Pulse

A removable anchor for use in concrete and rock, the Coeur Pulse provides temporary anchorage for fall arrest or work positioning systems, and leaves minimal impact upon removal. Installed in a similar manner to a conventional anchor bolt, the Coeur Pulse features an expanding sleeve and locking mechanism preventing accidental removal. It can be pull tested to verify the integrity of the installation using a portable tension tester. In 50MPa concrete, the Coeur Pulse can achieve up to 25kN shear strength. Couer Pulse is the ideal option for temporary anchoring on concrete structures, or in remote settings with quality rock.

Permanent Anchors:

Provide permanent height safety system anchors on a building, rock face or concrete installation with these great options below. With anchors for different roof cladding profiles and coverage requirements, there's sure to be a solution for you.

Ferno Surfacelok

A permanent alternative to the Ferno Rooflok, Surfacelok installs with roofing screws and rivets and provides a 360 degree anchor point on most metal roof cladding. With individual serial numbering and stainless steel construction, the Surfacelok is a high quality anchor that will provide years of fall protection with appropriate periodic inspection. Use the Surfacelok for permanent fall protection along catwalks where a guardrail system may not be suitable.

Ferno Purlinlok

Low profile and available in options to suit common cladding profiles, Purlinlok provides a high strength fall arrest anchor point in a small package. Designed for permanent installation, Purlinlok is installed in place of an existing roofing screw, and is anchored through a hole drilled into a steel purlin. Purlinlok can be installed without needing to access the underside of the roof structure, and the integrated seal ensure the continued weather-tightness of the roof. The 360 degree Anchorsafe force limiter allows for work in all directions from the anchor installation and provides extra force absorption in the event of a fall (Purlinlok must still be used with a system including a Personal Energy Absorber). Choose Purlinlok wherever a low profile fall arrest anchor providing 360 degrees of fall protection is required.

Hi-Safe RA10

Similar to the Purlinlok, the RA10 is available in options to suit common cladding profiles. The Eyebolt design sits proud of the cladding surface, providing clearance for attachment of your fall arrest system. With a 22kN Ultimate Strength, the RA10 is rated for two person use and meets the requirements of AS1891.4 Anchorage Requirements. RA10 features an M12 Eyebolt and full Stainless Steel construction for durability and corrosion resistance. As with the Purlinlok, RA10 installs easily through existing steel purlins and does not require access to the underside of the cladding for installation.

Fixe SS 316L Anchors

Updated in 2020 and based on almost 40 years of anchor innovation, Fixe's new 316L Stainless Steel range of anchors improves on a proven design. The M12 Expansion Bolt has a 25kN Tensile Strength and is available in two lengths (90mm and 110mm) to suit most applications. The Update Fixe 1 Hanger has rounded edges to reduce carabiner wear, and an integrated conical washer to produce repeatable, precise tightening during installation. An excellent option for permanent anchoring into concrete or hard rock.

Not long after sunset a mist settled over my tent and most of the night was remarkably mild at around -1°C but a couple of hours before sunrise it cleared and I had a healthy minimum of -6.3°C leaving the tent crusted with ice and the ground crunchy underfoot. Not as cold as Liawenee which registered a cool -9.6°C but still refreshingly crisp.

Summit photos seldom tell the story of the journey to reach there. For me, after 34 days on Annapurna 1 (8,091m), it seemed like a sure win, but I decided to turn back ~350m from the summit due to severe stomach pains… and head-torch failure.
