Anchor Points (8) Product(s)
Anchor points are one of three key elements in an effective fall arrest system. When working at height at any time, the first step you take when planning your fall protection system is to position your anchor points. All levels of construction are based on your anchor points and how they function with the lanyard you’re working with.
Choosing a suitable anchoring point can make the difference between working safely and a potentially fatal accident when working at height. There are a wide variety of different anchor points available from Safety Harness Direct – browse all working at height anchor points below:
How to Select the Right Anchor Point?
With such a wide variety of options on the market for anchor points, it can be difficult to know which ones are best. Here are a few things you should consider when selecting anchor points. Firstly, what are you hoping to achieve? If you’re looking to set up a fall restraint arrest system versus a fall restraint system, you'll need an anchor point that's strong enough to support your body weight. Similarly, what type of lanyard will you be using? Most retractable fall arresters are paired with overhead anchor points to prevent swing in the event of a fall.
