Rope Access Dead Weight Anchor Systems


An alternative to fixed suspended access systems for buildings and projects with irregular façade maintenance requirements.

Heightsafe’s Dead Weight Trolleys provide an adaptable, flexible and cost-effective alternative to fixed suspended access systems for buildings and projects with irregular façade maintenance requirements. Suitable for use when placed against a parapet wall (not including Collective Edge Protection systems), these temporary deadweight anchors can be adjusted to the height of the wall, ensuring that the top bar is just higher than the copings – 450mm minimum and 1,200mm maximum upstands.

  • Deadweight System Features

    Dead Weight Trolleys are standalone units, offering a non-destructive solution with no need to penetrate the roofs’ structure, or indeed make any alterations to your building’s exterior envelope aesthetics. Each component of the system weighs no more than 25kg, meaning it is easy to assemble and manoeuvre from locations, whilst being ideal for working in small spaces.

    Our specialists recommend completing a pre-use check focusing on:

    1. Eyebolts: securely attached with no visible signs of cracking
    2. Rollers: secure and working effectively
    3. Sword Pins: secured in place and working effectively
    4. Weights: all six weights are in place and secured down
    5. Wheels: functioning correctly and secure

    If your Dead Weight Trolley is currently showing signs of non-compliance with the above, DO NOT USE the system and contact one of our specialists immediately.

    • 6 x 25kg weights (these must be used at all times)
    • Safe working load of 250kg (meaning that the system can be used as emergency rescue equipment)
