Weightanka - Man Anchor
WEIGHTANKA is a non-penetrating, portable, deadweight anchor device designed for use on roofs with up to a 5 degree pitch for temporary or permanent applications where the installation of passive or collective protection, such as guardrails, or permanent anchor devices is not viable.
WEIGHTANKA utilises a central pedestal (attachment point) to raise the height at which the arrest force is applied and so reducing the distance the anchor device moves during a fall-arrest event.
A basic system weighs only 250Kg, with no single item weighing more than 25Kg for ease of installation, and provides total fall protection for a single worker for fall arrest or two workers in restraint if they remain at least 500mm away from the fall hazard. It is designed for use with personal protection equipment, such as a harness and lanyard.
The WEIGHTANKA system conforms to Class E of EN 795 standards and is approved to meet the PPE Directive.
WEIGHTANKA can be used on all roof surfaces, including single-ply membrane, asphalt, concrete, stone chippings (brushed) and mineral felt. Kee System's man anchor features base weights fully encased in rubber moulding to prevent the pads from peeling at the edges.
WEIGHTANKA offered by Kee Systems is very quick and easy to assemble, utilising a minimum of loose components, and does not penetrate the roof surface or require any structural attachments. Metal components are galvanized to BS EN ISO 1461 for corrosion resistance and long life.
