When are roof anchors required?

If your team is required to work at heights make sure you have the proper anchor points installed. Working at heights is a high-risk activity and one of Australia’s leading cause of death and serious injury. In the period 2003-2015 workers were killed from a fall from a height accounted to 11% of all workers killed in that period with a total of 359 workers. [1] The construction industry accounted for 37% of falls-related fatalities. [1] 

Prices

Cost of anchor points usually is based on application, roof pitch, roof type & location of the job. Prices ranges from $150 up to $400 per anchor. Typical roofs need around 7-50 anchors depending on the roof size. You might also consider a Ladder Bracket, Anchor Strop & a Safety Sign. We provide proposals with plan mark-ups, free consultations and site visits. Call us at: 0286 670 722

Australian Standards and Load Rating

Our range of anchor points complies with Australian Standards AS/NZS/ 1891.4.2009, AS/NZS/5532.2013 & AS/NZS 4488. Anchor points are usually rated at 15 kN for one person & 21kN for a two person anchor. Chemically fixed anchor points are load tested to insure proper installation and capability to withstand rated loads. Anchor points fixed on metal sheet roofs are visually inspected.

Who can install roof anchor points?

Installations of roof anchor points are carried out by our trained and certified installers with extensive expertise in fall protection systems. The installation process strictly follows the manufacturer’s guidelines and recommendations to ensure the integrity and effectiveness of the roof anchor points.

How long do roof anchor points last?

The lifespan of roof anchor points can vary depending on several factors, including the type of roof, environmental conditions, maintenance, and the frequency of use. Generally roof anchor points are rated for 10 years of service after which they need to be replaced. Extreme weather conditions, such as heavy rainfall, or exposure to corrosive substances, may accelerate wear and tear. Regular inspections and maintenance are crucial to ensuring the ongoing safety and effectiveness of roof anchor points.

How do you use a roof anchor?

Start by preparing yourself with the required PPE, including a secure harness. Safely access the roof  then connect your harness to the installed roof anchor using a lanyard or lifeline. Before commencing any work, conduct a thorough safety check to ensure that all equipment is in good condition. If your work involves moving around the roof, utilize additional anchor points or a lifeline system to stay securely connected. A working at heights ticket is needed for all personnel conducting tasks at heights.

How many anchors do I need for my roof?

The number of anchors you need for your roof depends on several factors, including the size and layout of your roof, number of personnel on the roof at one time, and the type of work or activities you plan to undertake. Note that sometimes a smaller roof might need more anchors than a bigger one. It’s crucial to conduct a thorough evaluation of your roof and the planned activities to determine the appropriate number and placement of anchor points for effective fall protection.
