Mobile Man Anchor
Safesite's Mobile Man Anchor has been specifically designed to provide short term safety for low frequency operations where guardrails are not provided, such as for maintenance of flat roofs or plant & equipment installed at roof level including air conditioning units, lightning conductors and telecommunications equipment.
Currently the lightest Anchor on the market (just 12 weights in both wet and dry conditions), Safesite's Mobile Man Anchor is extremely compact, portable and easily assembled. The anchor weights are supplied with suction cup rubber boots which protect the roof and increase friction resistance, enabling the anchor to be used on all roof membranes, even in wet weather.
Safesite's Mobile Man Anchor should, as far as is reasonably practical, only be used as a fall restraint system as opposed to fall arrest. When used as a restraint system, a fixed length lanyard should be used in order to ensure the operative is unable to reach the leading edge.
The Mobile Man Anchor should only be used as a fall arrest system as a last resort and after careful consideration. In this situation, the unit must be used in conjunction with a shock absorbing rope grab device with 16mm twisted rope.
Important Note: Please refer to the Personal Fall Protection section of the product specification guide or O&M Manual for information on minimum height requirements and potential fall distances before using the Mobile Man Anchor as a fall arrest system.
Safesite's Mobile Man Anchor can be used on any flat roof or industrial steel pitched roof providing the structure is capable of taking the load of the unit (250kg) combined with the weight of the operative and any additional equipment. When working on a pitched roof that is 15°, the Anchor must be placed on the opposite pitch to where the operative intends to work.
Linked Mobile Man Anchors
A series of Mobile Man Anchors can also be linked using the KeeLine horizontal life line system. This provides fall restraint protection for operatives while they travel between each Mobile Man Anchor and fall arrest once they are disconnected from the life line and connected directly to an individual anchor.
