Revolution in fall protection
The Kedge Anchor Point is a revolution in the world of fall protection for flat roofs. In contrast to traditional anchor points, Kedge Anchor Points are not mechanically fastened to the roof construction, but bonded to the roofing material.
The advantage of bonding anchor points is that no holes have to be drilled in the roofing material and insulating layer. By using a Kedge Anchor Point, the roof construction remains fully intact, and leaks and thermal bridges are prevented.
Moreover, the activities performed underneath the roof do not have to be considered. Daily activities can be continued without interruption. This is a major advantage, especially for roofs of buildings such as hospitals, cold stores or data centres.
Why the Kedge Anchor Point?
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.
Includes CE marking
The Kedge Anchor Point Bitumen is one of the first anchor points for flat roofs that comes with a CE marking in accordance with the EU Construction Product Directive (CPD). This is the EU Directive for anchor points that are permanently attached to a building.
