Freestanding Energy Absorbing Post

Portable Anchor Points For Rooftops


The freestanding energy absorbing post provides worker safety at heights where there is an occasional or temporary requirement to access flat roofs or structures.

The energy absorbing post is contained within an anchor device consisting of a galvanized steel frame and galvanized steel weights bolted onto rubber coated base weights. In the event of a fall, the post deploys to limit the load on the system while the weights simultaneously create a friction anchor between the unit and the roof surface.

Temporary Fall Protection Anchors

The freestanding energy absorbing post is used on nominally flat roofs up to a maximum pitch of 5° where it is impractical to install traditional fixed posts or rigid anchor posts to the roof or supporting structure. The post has been tested and approved for use on concrete, single ply membrane, bitumen membrane, asphalt-sanded, asphalt-stone chipped and steel roof profiles.

The freestanding energy absorbing post is for use as a single point anchor.
