Defender™ Roof Anchors

Workplace Wing supplies independently certified Defender™ roof anchors and harnesses for safe and efficient fall prevention and arrest (IFAS).

When to use roof anchors

Roof anchors provide a safe attachment point for static lines and lanyards. Used in fall arrest and fall restraint systems, roof anchors are the next best option when work either cannot be carried out on the ground or when guardrails are impractical – for example, when work needs to be carried out close to an unprotected edge.

Find out more about when Defender™ roof anchors should be used according to the safe work at heights hierarchy of control.

Mounting Defender™ roof anchors

Defender™ roof anchors are generally fixed to the roof purlins but can also be mounted directly on roof sheeting or chem set into concrete. Workplace Wing can advise which type is the best for your building.

Using Defender™ roof anchors safely

As part of a fall restraint or arrest system, the installation of Defender™ roof anchors needs to be carefully thought out. The right installation will reduce the risk of the potentially lethal pendulum effect and minimise the risk of falls.

Workplace Wing’s certified installation professionals have been extensively factory trained to comply with AS/NZS 5532 and AS/NZS 1891 – Industrial fall-arrest systems and devices.

As part of the installation, Workplace Wing supplies a complete registered installation certificate and administrative controls. Under the standard, anchors must be tested annually, which Workplace Wing will arrange for you. We’ll also manage the rigorous record-keeping demanded under Australian state laws.
