Man Anchors Fall Arrest

For smaller roof safety problems which require a simple solution, Areco Ltd offers a free-standing post system specially designed to be easily set up and used. The Weight Angel man anchor minimises the distance someone working at height could fall in an accident, ensuring safety when it is of the utmost importance.

The system is comprised of a set of weights assembled into a single, round unit, which creates a powerful anchor that can withstand any fall. The system is small – around 120cm wide – and avoids being a major trip hazard, whilst being very easy to disassemble and store. The non-penetrative weights make the anchor ideal for use on flat roofs of old and new buildings alike.

Pre-use Checks

  • Check the end post aluminium cover. If this has signs of damage, then it is a key sign that the system has potentially undergone a fall loading.
  • Ensure that all labels are clear, present and legible.
  • Always notify the correct personnel that you intend working at height.
  • Check that the PPE is in good order and that it has not exceeded the date of obsolescence. This date is dictated by the PPE Manufacturer - refer to the harness certification.
  • Check that the supplied PPE meets the requirements of the restraints distances detailed in the method statement supplied by the system installer.
