Rooftop Anchor Points

Secure rooftop safety anchors, Roof tiebacks and overhead anchor points

Fall Protection Anchor Points

Safe rooftops, towers, and tanks that require inspections, maintenance, and repair should have clear ways to connect lanyards, lifelines, and other forms of tie-off to ensure work at height is safe. There are active roof anchor fall protection systems that use a single fixed point of attachment for tying off, and they come in various forms. These anchors are commonly found on the roof, fixed to either permanent or temporary post systems. They can also be found inside operations in the rafters. Single point anchors are suitable for use in both fall arrest and fall restraint systems.

Roof anchor points, rigid posts, and single-point anchors can be used for various tasks and applications. The type of roof anchor points for fall protection varies by industry, job, type of installation, and structure. Our Rigid Roof Anchors are designed to resist a pull-out force of 5400 lbs (24 kN) and can hold more than a ton of force generated in a fall.

Anchor Point Options

Single Point Anchor

A single point anchor is made of a D-ring attached to a part of the existing structure, an overhead beam, a column or even a piece of equipment.  The D-ring can be directly bolted or clamped to eliminate drilling or welding.

Lighthouse safety provides a complete ANSI Z359.6 compliant design package and training to ensure the anchorage is designed and used correctly.

Tank Anchors

Over ground storage tanks provide a number of fall protection challenges.  Many tanks have limited guard rail capabilities, leaving workers at risk of fall hazards while working at height.   

Lighthouse Safety has designed a full range of clamp-on tank anchors for storage tanks.

Our tank anchors include pipes as small as 4” up to 48”.  Our more prominent tank anchors feature a circular trolley rail, allowing up to 2 users to safely work off the anchor in fall restraint.

Davit Arms & Pedestals

Davit and socket systems are easy to operate, economical and readily customized. Socket safety systems are generally exposed but can be recessed below the roof surface where a public space requires an adequate safety solution.

Lighthouse Safety sockets and davits offer the advantage of allowing maintenance personnel to board the stage. At the same time, it rests on the rooftop and can be designed to work on buildings with multiple levels (terraces, balconies, etc.).

Sockets & Davit Specifications:

  • Platform lengths can exceed 20 feet
  • Standard facade with up to 8.5 feet height

Window Washing Fall Protection

The Importance of Fall Safety Equipment for Window Washers

May 24, 2023
We love clean and shiny windows on a building. But the ones who perform the task of washing them have to carry out dangerous and risky methods to finish their job. The 1974 HSW Act has set forth general duties that employers have towards their employees. They must ensure that the health, welfare, and safety of their employees are always protected on the premises.
