Lemoyne, Pa. May 12, 2021 – Homeowners, building owners, contractors and managers can now work safely on standing seam roofs without worrying about damage to panels. The Standing Seam system uses superior anchorage attachment, certified at an independent ISO 17025/ANSI Z359.18 certified materials testing facility. A wide variety of Standing Seam Roof Anchor (SSRA) systems are available for immediate purchase.
Capable of withstanding 14,500 pounds, the SSRA far outstrips the required 5,000 pounds specified by OSHA and ANSI. When the system did ultimately fail, the attachment bolts sheared, leaving the panel itself completely unharmed. (Test anchor body was made of aluminum.) Nearly 10,000 pounds above the required limit and thousands of pounds above all other manufacturers, the Standing Seam Roof Anchor is an inimitable product.
Despite the massive load-bearing capacity and fall protection, however, the SSRA isn’t heavy at all. In fact, an anchor made for one person weighs only 4.5 pounds. That makes it simultaneously both the strongest and the lightest one ever made. It is easy to adjust and move, making it the ideal choice for either temporary or permanent attachment.
No need to buy different products for different jobs or job sites, however. The Standing Seam Roof Anchor boasts a universal design, and therefore works on more than 500 different panel types. These official “panel profiles” included t-seams, bulb seams, SnapLok, single lok, double lok, MR-24 and more. In addition to strongest and lightest, the SSRA is also the most widely applicable. Users can take it from roof to roof without the need to switch out parts, reassemble it or use different systems completely. Consequently, the savings in time, money and effort are considerable.
Components also withstand the test of time. Made of heavily tested stainless steel and aluminum materials, the anchor withstands salt spray and other adverse weather. It takes well to powder coating, so it’s simple to blend permanent anchor installations into the surrounding roof color. The low-profile attachment makes fixed installations even harder to see. This also minimizes tripping.
Another noteworthy characteristic of the Standing Seam Roof Anchor is its ability to withstand the full 5,000 pounds required in every direction of pull. That means workers can count on the roof anchor to prevent accident or injury no matter where they are in relation to the anchor. Working downward, to either side, upward or even up and over the top of the roof, the anchor provides equal protection. That minimizes the need for workers to adjust their anchors on the job. Instead, it gives them freedom of movement to focus on the task at hand.
The SSRA system isn’t just for people. Because it can handle such large loads, it is also ideal for devices and machinery. Users can attach walk boards, SRLs, ladders, horizontal lifelines and roof jacks with equal ease. Get anchors for everyone in the crew as well as all heavy tools frequently in use, and trust to them to keep the jobsite safe for everyone – and every expensive piece of equipment.
Minimize scratching when frequently attaching or detaching the Standing Seam Roof Anchor with recommended Nylon Tipped Set Screws. This will keep roofs looking nice for years to come. These work just as well with the patented universal fit design of the SSRA, and are reusable over and over again. Installation requires nothing more than a torque wrench that reads to inches per pounds, as well as a 3/16-inch hex bit socket. Nothing could be simpler.
The website makes it easy to reorder screws, pair robes and shock absorbers with the SSRA system, and find an appropriate torque wrench, if contractors and workers don’t already have one on hand.
Roofers looking to support American industry will find the Standing Seam Roof Anchor a bonus as well. It’s made in the United States with a Lifetime Life Saving Warranty. Users never again have to worry about paying for a replacement, and profits go to support American businesses. The Standing Seam Roof Anchor is available in a significant number of options, from different attachments to contractor kits that include multiple anchors. Visit www.fallpd.com to learn more today.
