Vacuum Anchors For Fall Protection

Portable Fall Arrest Anchor Systems For Aircrafts


These lightweight portable anchors use vacuum suction technology to attach to smooth, non-porous surfaces and provide tie-off anchor points wherever needed.

When hangar space isn’t available, an overhead cable-based system probably isn’t your fall protection solution. That’s where vacuum anchors comes in. Our vacuum anchor systems operate inside or outdoors, providing access to the entire spectrum of aircraft shapes and sizes. Your workers will be able to work with confidence and efficiency in any environment.

System Portability

Vacuum anchors provides a compact, lightweight and flexible fall protection solution that allows maintenance checks to be undertaken quickly and easily.

These portable anchors can be used anywhere an aircraft is parked, inside the hangar or out on the apron. All that is needed is a compressed air or nitrogen supply. The system is light and easy to carry making it a one-man operation.

Minimal On-Going Maintenance

Efficiency and innovation in design make maintaining our vacuum anchors a simple procedure. Calibration may be conducted on site with no specialized tools or equipment. Operating cost is also very low, without the need for stocking backup components, allowing users to work with confidence and efficiency in any environment.

Additionally, our vacuum anchors provide a system that meet all regulatory requirements and comes with built-in safety features to provide continuous fall protection, even in the event of accidental air loss.
