All Fall Arrest and Abseil rated anchors which are permanently installed are required to have annual inspection, testing and recertification- including tagging. Re-certification is a requirement in accordance with AS/NZS standards. Workers should not attach to anchors that do not show test and tagging in the past 12 months, as the anchor could be unsafe due to corrosion, external damage, wear & tear, deployment, tampering or damage to sub-structure.
Technology and innovation have combined in the design of unique energy absorption posts, which reduce the amount of force applied back to the structure; permitting installation of these systems onto a wide variety of structures including timber roof joints, steel purlins, poly panels and roof sheeting or surface mounting. Known as Spirotec anchors, they use Linear Energy Absorbtion Posts (LEAP) technology and engineering, and can be used along with structurally mounted Anchor Points if required. This diversity allows PBI to solve many problems and issues that architects, consultants and structural engineers have faced with the restricted installation options of the past that relied heavily on structurally engineered anchorages that penetrated roofing substrates.
