Axis Anchorage products give workers safe access to dangerous areas. While most often used on rooftops or building facades, we also install custom systems inside manufacturing facilities and other worksites. These products include anchorages, rigging sleeves, davit systems, outrigger beams, and others.
Weldable Rooftop Anchorage
Used on new steel frame construction, the Weldable Roof Anchorage is field-welded to structural beams. Web stiffeners and bracing can be applied for added strength.
The cast-in-place anchorage is used on concrete roofs. The embed and anchorage are placed during forming—before the concrete is poured—for a permanent, structural anchor point.
The Beam Wrap Anchor offers a solution when an adequate sized steel beam is available for attachment. These are typically used in retrofit applications when welding is not an option.
Used on roof deck or floor slabs where the thickness and strength of the concrete is adequate, the Epoxy Anchorage is attached with stainless steel rods and secured using certified adhesive systems.
The Bolt-through Anchorage is used on roof or floor slabs that are made of structural concrete. The anchor is attached through the deck with bolts, back plates, lock washers, and nuts
WOOD DECK ANCHORAGES
FORCE MANAGEMENT ANCHORAGES
The Force Management Anchorage offers tremendous versatility due to its abililty to attach to many different kinds of roof deck regardless of structure available. This anchor is classified as a deforming anchor (tipover style). The unique energy absorbing system inside this anchor reduces the overturning moment on the structure by over half (compared with a typical rigid anchor). Their only limitation is they cannot be used for suspended access. These are ideal, however, for retrofit projects.
Wall anchorages are available in a variety of models and capable of attaching to a vertical substrate above the roof.
PIPE WRAP ANCHORAGES
Weathertite Systems can be installed in as little as five minutes per base and are waterproofed at roof-height, featuring integrated, manufacturer-approved flashing.
Rigging Sleeves are a structural conduit, and are designed to allow proper rigging configurations when building features obstruct safe access to work areas. These systems are specifically designed to accommodate building layout and worker access requirements.
Rigging Sleeves can provide a solution to safely reach difficult access points such as atriums, roof overhangs, cornices, facade step-backs, interior walls, and unique or protruding architecture. A variety of models are available, all designed to support powered platforms, single worker cages, or powered bosun chairs.
PINNED OUTRIGGER BEAMS
Pinned outrigger beams utilize our Axis Anchorages instead of counterweights to secure them to the rooftop. These provide peace of mind for building owners by reducing the risk of window cleaners damaging expensive non-structural architectural elements like louvers, eyebrows, sun shades, awnings, glass railing or non-loading bearing parapets.
Pinned Outrigger Beams are routinely used to support rope descent systems, powered platforms, single worker cages or powered bosun chair access. These are ideal on retrofit projects because, unlike davits, they typically don’t require the same degree of bracing and reinforcing. These can also be conveniently and easily repositioned and stored out of view after use.
Davit arms are traditionally associated with suspending powered platforms from buildings, but they are also useful for rope descent systems by creating a suspension point outboard of architectural elements like louvers, eyebrows, sun shades, awnings, glass railing and non-loading bearing parapets.
These systems are most frequently designed into new construction projects because they required substantial structure around the perimeter of the building. We routinely design davits to support rope descent systems, powered platforms, single worker cages or powered bosun chairs. Similiar to Outrigger Beams, these can be conveniently and easily repositioned and stored out of view.
