APS101: X-ERT Retro Fix Energy Absorbing Anchor (Kit)
The APS101 X-ERT Retro Fix Anchor (Kit) is a permanent anchor rated at 22kN, designed for use either as a single person or 2 person anchor. It is used on metal roofing/steel purlin structure when there is limited/no access to the underside of the purlin, and prevents the user from losing control of the product and allowing it to become a falling object.
The X-ERT unique design incorporates the ability to dramatically reduce the loads applied to the structure in the case of a fall by an inbuilt energy absorption function. This shock absorbing action is designed to continually distort, making it a genuine 2 man system.
The location of the anchor point(s) and the installation must be carried out by a competent person in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
• Safe access to roof areas for roof or gutter maintenance
• Safe access while installing or maintaining equipment near a fall zone
• The APS101 Retro Fix Anchor is designed to be installed from the top of the roof after installation of the roof sheeting
