SafeRing provides an aesthetically pleasing and inherently strong permanent alternative to conventional eyebolts as single point anchorages. It can be installed for use in aggressive external environments, internal locations such as office, industrial and commercial buildings, and can also be supplied with concealed access boxes for use in conjunction with raised access flooring.
SafeRing is available in a range of different finishes including galvanised steel, stainless steel, white nylon coated and special RAL colours to order.
- Suitable for external and internal environments where there is a need for a single point anchorage.
- Easy to install into suitable load bearing elements of the building.
- Enables specifiers to comply with the guidelines for safe reach limits for window cleaners as contained within BS8213 Part 1: 1991.
- Available in galvanised steel, stainless steel and white nylon coated as standard.
- Can be supplied finished in special RAL colours to order.
- Availability of concealed access for use in raised access flooring.
- SafeRing should be installed by suitably trained and qualified personnel.
- System design should ensure that an operative can always connect to the SafeRing from a position where they are not at risk of a fall.
- SafeRing must only be fixed into a suitable load bearing element of the building. In general, brickwork parapets, infill panels and areas below windows are not suitable for fixed anchor points.
- SafeRing should not be installed within 150 mm of any edge.
