A modular mobile anchor fall prevention system, for use with Personal Protection Equipment (PPE). The Kee Anchor® product group includes Weightanka®, Wireanka® and Accessanka® options.
Personal protection solutions
In the absence of collective fall protection systems, mobile man anchor systems are commonly used to make working at height much safer.
The Kee Anchor® range of Type B, E and supports for Type C roof anchor devices for personal protection of workers carrying out roof level maintenance operations. Products from the Kee Anchor® range are designed for use on roofs where there are no permanent guardrails or other anchor devices.
Quick and easy installation
Our portable deadweight anchor system is quick and easy to handle. Very often there are just two men assembling the system and it is down to them to take the necessary components up on the roof, lift and re-position them as necessary, and take back down again. It can be heavy and time consuming work. To solve these problems, Kee Safety takes a modular approach to roof man anchor systems. By using individual, smaller components, our range of roof anchor devices are much easier to lift and carry to and from the point of use; a basic system weights only 250Kg, with no single item weighting more than 25Kg.
Weightanka® is a mobile, deadweight anchor device for use on roofs up to 5 degree pitch, where the installation of collective protection or permanent anchor devices is not viable. Weightanka® utilises a central pedestal which allows the attachment of a safety harness and lanyard and raises the height at which the arrest force is applied.
The system conforms to Type E EN 795:1997 and is approved to meet the PPE Directive.
Accessanka® is designed as an accessory to Weightanka® to provide a portable anchor device for rope access workers, allowing them to work safely. It does not penetrate the roof, is suitable for most flat roof surfaces and requires no attachment to structural members. When correctly installed, the system is extremely stable and will not migrate across the roof surface either in normal use or when arresting the fall of both a worker and rescuer up to 200Kg limit.
Accessanka® conforms to Type B EN 795:1997.
Wireanka® is a system of deadweight anchor devices designed to support Type `C' horizontal, flexible safety lines to BS EN 795. It is intended for use on flat roofs, in temporary situations, or where it is preferable the penetration of the roof surface be avoided.
Weightanka® is a non-penetrating, portable, deadweight anchor device designed for use on roofs with up to a 5 degree pitch for temporary or permanent applications where the installation of passive or collective protection, such as guardrails, or permanent anchor devices is not viable.
Weightanka® utilises a central pedestal (attachment point) to raise the height at which the arrest force is applied and so reducing the distance the anchor device moves during a fall-arrest event.
A basic system weighs only 250Kg, with no single item weighing more than 25Kg for ease of installation, and provides total fall protection for a single worker for fall arrest or two workers in restraint if they remain at least 500mm away from the fall hazard. It is designed for use with personal protection equipment, such as a harness and lanyard.
The Weightanka® system conforms to Class E of EN 795 standards and is approved to meet the PPE Directive.
For use on all roof surfaces, including single-ply membrane, asphalt, concrete, stone chippings (brushed) and mineral felt. Weightanka® features base weights fully encased in rubber moulding to prevent the pads from peeling at the edges.
The Weightanka® system is very quick and easy to assemble, utilising a minimum of loose components, and does not penetrate the roof surface or require any structural attachments. Metal components are galvanized to BS EN ISO 1461 for corrosion resistance and long life.
Kee Anchor® is part of the Kee Safety line of rooftop fall protection products that also includes KEEGUARD® freestanding roof edge protection system, KEELINE® 8mm stainless wire systems and KEE WALK® roof walkways .
Wireanka® is a system of EN795 Class E deadweight anchor devices designed to support Kee Safety's BS EN 795 Class `C' horizontal, flexible safety lines.
A non-penertrative hands free, horizontal lifeline solution on flat roofs up to 5 degrees, for temporary or permanent applications.
The system can incorporate corners and allows spans of up to 15m in between intermediate supports.
As the penetration of the roof surface is not required the additional cost of waterproofing is avoided and there is also no need to drill into or open up the roof, allowing the buildings use to be unaffected during installation.
Suitable for up to two users working in fall arrest and multiple users in restraint, dependant on configuration.
Accessanka® is a self contained portable anchor device for workers requiring rope access to the side of a building.
It does not penetrate the roof, is suitable for most flat roof surfaces and requires no attachment to structural members.
It is used in conjunction with the Weightanka® and together the systems provide an internally force balanced solution, which is extremely stable and will not migrate across the roof surface.
Designed for single person use, Accessanka® has been tested for 2 users plus equipment upto a working load limit of 200Kg in case of rescue.
Designed for easy transportation and installation, being of modular construction with no part over 25KG or 2M long.
