Fall Arrest & Fall Protection Systems ManSafe® for Roofing
The Latchways Constant Force® post top-fixes to all major types of roofing system and provides anchor points to support cable-based fall protection systems. The benefit of the Latchways Constant Force post is that, should a fall occur on the system, the posts allow the load generated to be absorbed through the entire systemrather than being transferred to the roof, building or structure. Top fixing to the roof sheet protects the roof system from any damage (such as leakage and cold bridging normally associated with through fixing methods of installation) therefore not invalidating the warranty/guarantee of the roof.
In accordance to EN 795 the Latchways Constant Force post has undergone successful representative testing across over 500 roof types. Additionally since the introduction of CEN TS 16415:2013 stating that multi-user devices must now be tested to simulate a minimum of two users falling simultaneously, Latchways has been successfully testing the Constant Force post to this standard, since its launch in 2001.
