Kedge Anchor Points for personal fall protection can be very quickly and easily installed on existing roofing material. Installing them is not difficult, especially not for experienced roofers. No holes have to be drilled in the roofing material and insulating layer. This makes the Kedge Anchor Point the perfect solution for fall protection on flat roofs.
Attaching a Kedge Anchor Point is fast and simple. A rosette of roofing material is clamped in the anchor point. A torch or heat gun is used to attach the rosette to the roof surface. This creates a safe connection to the underlying roofing material.
The rosette of roofing material comes with an extremely strong polyester inlay. When the Kedge Anchor Point is subjected to a load, the energy released dissipates via the roofing material present around it. This optimises the way in which the flexibility, strength and mass of the roofing material are used.
The Kedge Anchor Point Bitumen is the first anchor point for flat roofs that comes with a CE marking in accordance with the EU Construction Products Directive (CPD). This is the EU Directive for anchor points that are permanently attached to a building.
