At Heightsafe Systems, we install abseiling anchors in accordance with the recommendations set out in BS Code of Practice 7985:2002 conforming to BS EN795.
Fall arrest anchors are installed generally at roof level and must only be fixed into a suitable load bearing element of the building. Our initial survey will identify where the best location would be for the anchor points, and the areas generally exclude abseil eyebolts are brickwork parapets, infill panels and areas below windows or within 280mm of an edge in brickwork or 150mm in concrete.
All our fall arrest anchor installations are undertaken by at least two trained technicians and your eyebolts will be clearly tagged to identify the date of the next inspection. Fall arrest anchor points are required by law to be retested every 6 months, to 6Kn, so don’t get them mixed up with standard window cleaning, maintenance eyebolts which are every 12 months.
Our unique software will help eliminate the issue of fall arrest anchor points becoming out of date and therefore decommissioned, as auto reminders are in place to alert you in plenty of time, as to when we are next due to visit and recertify.
