What are the Standards?

Roof Safety Anchors are designed to save lives. Thorough performance testing is critical. If you drop 100 kilograms a few meters you would put a huge load of up to 22 kilo-newtons on the anchor point at the moment it stops. That’s more than 2 tonnes! We at Secure Height Systems serve Sydney & NSW and ensure all our roof anchors points are supplied, installed & certified in accordance with relevant Australian Standards.

Testing Standards for Anchors

All of our anchor points are tested to the highest benchmarks on all types of roofs to insure safety. Our in-house tests include:

  • Testing different supporting structures and roof sheets
  • Applying shear forces at different angles to test different fall possibilities
  • Static testing of 15 kilo-newtons for single user anchors and 21 kilo-newtons for the two person anchors for a minimum of 3 minutes
  • Documentation of results and engineering report

Our on-site tests include:

  • Height safety layout check
  • Stress testing for friction fixed & chemically fixed anchors
  • Thorough inspections of anchors and fixings
  • Inspection of roofs & roof sheets
  • Detailed report & recommendations
