Anchor points EN 795 SAFEX® are a fall arrest device according with the European standard EN ISO 795: 2012 class A. These kind of devices are called “structural anchor points” as they are permanently fixed to a supporting structure. The wide scope of available fixings allows SAFEX® anchoring ensuring safety in any situation and any type of supporting structure (concrete, wood, trapezoidal sheet, metal decks, steel girders, etc.).
When should we use SAFEX® anchor points?
SAFEX® anchor points are intended to fasten personal protective equipment (PPE) as operators work at heights. We must take into account that this type of anchoring significantly limits the user’s mobility. To improve this, a stainless steel swivel eye bolt attached to the base of the device, rotates 360°.
Our anchor points SAFEX® absorbs energy not to damage the supporting structure in the event of a fall arrest. Depending on the client’s needs, we deliver with and without base plate. Different support heights available.
