A Roof Fall Anchor System That Suits

There are many roof anchors for fall protection on the market today, which makes it easier than ever to find one that suits your requirements exactly, but also makes it more complicated to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of each one and figure out which is best for you. The Shine On Group will help you find just the right fall protection system for every building and project. We can install all of the following:

  • Roof anchor system: A roof anchor is a device that attaches to the main work structure and serves as an anchor point for the other components you use to stop a fall. Anchor points can be used in different ways and are most often permanent installations, but can also be moved in some job sites. The Shine On Group are expert on roof anchor installation and will help you find the best solution for you.
  • Access system: This is a portable form of fall protection anchor that is normally custom designed and comes in a mobile frame or jib. This serves as an attachment point for fall arresting devices and is meant to be used with equipment that requires a worker to be significantly elevated. The Shine On Group can help you design a custom access system that provides adequate protection for a specific piece of equipment.
  • Horizontal lifelines: This is a versatile substitute for anchors when workers might not reach them consistently. Lifelines from the Shine On Group can be catered to each job site, made from the material that best fits and designed to attach to a roof, column, l-beam or rebar stud.

We’re here to help you do exactly that.  We also offer window washing anchor installation to keep employees safe at work.

Commercial Roof Anchors for Complete Worker Safety

Working on or from a roof, whether for maintenance, refurbishment, or window cleaning, is a dangerous business with the potential for death or serious injury. To prevent this, you need to install roof anchor systems that will fully protect your workers and ensure you comply with safety regulations.

Many protection systems comprise a roof lifeline safety system and anchor points to which workers can be attached for complete safety. We can design, manufacture and install roof anchor fall protection systems that will ensure your workers are kept safe without impairing their productivity or hindering in any way their working practices.

The Most Comprehensive Anchor Fall Protection Available

Roof safety anchors normally comprise a steel bar with a U-bar at the top so that safety lines can be attached. These anchors are most easily fitted to a new building as it is being erected because each roof fall protection anchor becomes an integral part of the roof.

To retrofit to an existing roof, we’ll first check for any existing water penetration and ensure the roof is sufficiently sound and has the strength to be able to withstand any loads resulting from the use of the anchor roofing system. The method of fixing the anchors will depend on the roofing material, which will include concrete, steel and reinforced timber, possibly with a membrane such as asphalt and gravel, bitumen or PVC.

Our aim is always to ensure that each roof fall protection anchor is securely fixed without adversely affecting the integrity of the roof structure. So for each installation, we will:

  1. Assess the roof to ensure that roof anchor systems can be fitted.
  2. Accurately measure the roof area in order to determine the extent of the roof safety anchors needed and the cost.
  3. Design the roof anchor system with complete drawings and documentation, ensuring that any roof warranty is not contravened, and that the system is comprehensive.
  4. Obtain approval for the project and its cost.
  5. Engineer and fabricate all required components in our own manufacturing facility.
  6. Install anchor points and roof lines in accordance with needs and safety regulations.
  7. Have the installation checked by a qualified engineer to ensure safe operation and compliance.
  8. Provide all necessary documentation, including installation and usage details.
  9. Supply a maintenance log to ensure the future safety of the system.

Keeping Workers Safe and Remaining Compliant

A quality roof anchor system, such as the ones we supply, should have a usable life of 25 years or more, although the actual life will depend on the conditions on the roof. To comply with regulations, however, you will need to arrange a visual inspection by a qualified engineer every year and have load testing of adhesive anchors every five years.

As well as any legal requirements, you have a moral responsibility to keep your workers safe at all times and that applies particularly to those operating at height. We can help you do that with our comprehensive service that starts with a full assessment of your needs and continues through design, manufacture, and installation to ongoing inspections and maintenance.

For one less thing to worry about, contact us today and put your roof safety in good hands.

Customer Reviews

In the five years I have worked faithfully with Shine On, you have always lived up to your name! There are not too many gray areas in cleaning and maintenance; it is either top notch, or it is just not clean. And Shine On always delivers top notch! Your end product is consistently satisfactory.

Angela HeldmanVP, The Building Group

The gentlemen were excellent!!!!!! Thank you...

Melinda Burke

Your team was here last week installing the anchors in our building. I must say you could not have sent a better group of gentleman. They were courteous and professional from the beginning to end. They went out of their way to work with our tenants and their schedules. When they finished up in a suite it was cleaner than when they started. It could not have gone any smoother. There is no doubt I had the “A Team ” on this project.

Isabel Raehn-LantryThe Marcent Group

Just wanted to send my compliments to the two window washers that were on my terraces on Friday. They were so careful and thorough and deliberate. And two very nice young men as well. Windows are perfect and zero damage to my abundant plant life! If you have an avenue, please pass my compliments along to them and the company.

Rob MilneThe Parc Chestnut Condominium Association

I just wanted to tell you that Shine On is really starting to scare me. As a property manager I am not use to getting complements about window cleaning, only complaints. So what’s up with all the positive feedback I am getting? Andrew is great. He is friendly and professional and does an amazing job cleaning windows. My residents are loving this. Thanks for making my job easier.
