Fall protection assembly

Fall protection assembly

Working at height is more dangerous than working on the ground. We have an extra risk here- fall from a height. There are many risks when working on the roof. A worker who is involved in installation work or, for example, removing snow from the snow, may simply slip and fall from a height. In such a case, appropriate measures to protect the health and life of employees seem necessary. Not every solution is suitable for every situation. Adapt the fall protection system to the prevailing needs and conditions.

The basic factors that we take into account are factors such as the number of users, the frequency of work in a given place or the material to which you can attach. Some surfaces are more difficult and the fall protection system has to be fastened differently. We have roofs made of trapezoidal sheet metal, reinforced concrete surfaces, rafter plates or wooden roofs. Often you also have to struggle with isolation. We have developed special methods for each surface that allow for effective assembly. We test each fixing method in our own laboratory to ensure that they comply with the EN 795 standard.

Fastening through isolation

It is not uncommon that we receive inquiries regarding fixing before insulation, e.g. to a trapezoidal sheet roof. Of course we can attach ourselves to the trapezoidal sheet but we always try to make the client aware of the compliance of the systems with the European standard. The standard clearly states that the base of the post should be above the isolation. In the case of installation of the fall protection system to the trapezoidal sheet, the system complies with the standard at the time. However, after applying the insulation layer to the base of the post, the standard is no longer respected.

Assembly of fall protection systems

We attach to many types of surfaces. Most often it is reinforced concrete and trapezoidal sheet- directly and through warming. There are often corrugated or hollow-core plates. Steel and wooden structures are also familiar to us. Each surface is different, each one requires a different fixture. Thanks to many years of experience of our employees, our solutions are the most innovative on the market. We provide the highest quality at the lowest price.

Anchorage point systems and rope systems

Horizontal fall protection system- there are two main types. An anchorage point system and a rope system. In the system of anchoring points, the user attaches to the post with a rope, walking around it is safe, but he has to switch from the post to the post. This is by far the cheapest solution. In the rope system, the user can move freely along the rope with the help of a trolley. There are passable and impassable rope systems. In impassable, we move along the rope and when we reach the post, we only need to clip through the post. In the mobile system, however, the trolley passes all the posts and the user can work without any obstacles without focusing on operating the safety system.

Installation with each system will be different, the differences will be in the distance between the posts and their location in relation to the edge. There is also the issue of stretching the rope with the rope system. The rope should be taut, it must not touch the roof surface.

So if we need a security system and we are driven by the price- a point system will be the best. If it is to be the most convenient system for the user- passable rope system and if it must be a rope system, but the price is also important then we recommend impassable rope system.
