Type A-Anchor Devices

These are an anchor device with one or more stationary anchor points while in use and have the need for a structural anchor or fixing element back to the main structure of the building These allow attachment for 1 person when exposed to a fall hazard e.g. when carrying out window cleaning

Type B-Anchor Devices

These are an anchor device with one or more stationary anchor points without the need for a structural anchor or fixing element into the structure. These anchor points can be temporarily rigged and then removed e.g Confined spaces entry equipment or frames for roped access use.

Type C-Anchor Devices

These are an anchor device employing a flexible anchor line with will deviate from the horizontal by not more than 15°. Travelling devices are attached to the anchor line allowing continuous attachment when adjacent to a fall hazard. e.g A Roofsafe system used during gutter clearance or maintenance.

Type D - Anchor Devices

These are an anchor device employing a rigid anchor line with will deviate from the horizontal by not more than 15°. Travelling devices are attached to the rigid anchor line allowing continuous attachment when adjacent to a fall hazard. e.g A Roofsafe Rail system used during gutter clearance or maintenance.

Type E Deadweight Anchors

These are an anchor device for use on surfaces up to 5° from the horizontal where the performance relies solely on mass and friction between itself and the surface. e.g A Weightanka set up temporarily to access an element of the building needing maintenance.

Vertical Fall Arrest Systems

Ladders installed with safety cages offer workers little fall protection. Research shows that workers falling inside a caged ladder may suffer injuries if they fall. Vertical Fall Arrest Systems arrest a fall much more effectively and safely.

Demarcation Systems

Demarcation is an economic solution to delineate a safe working zone on a roof top or where access is required adjacent to a fall hazard. A typical application may be for preventing access to hazards during regular rooftop maintenance or to provide safe access.

Guardrail Systems

The Working at Height Regulations set out a simple hierarchy for managing and selecting equipment for work at height which includes giving collective protection measures (e.g. guard rails) priority over personal protection measures (e.g. safety harnesses.
