Available from Solid Dynamics , Weightanka is part of a range of height safety products approved and tested by the relevant bodies for compliance with required standards.

A Weightanka portable deadweight anchor is ideal for applications where installation of collective protection or permanent anchor devices is not possible.

This is a basic height safety system weighting 250Kg in total, with no single item weighing more than 25Kg. This makes it a practical and convenient option where permanent anchors cannot be installed.

Weightanka can be used on roofs of up to 5 degrees pitch where the absence of guardrails or permanent anchor devices would otherwise preclude safe means of access.

The Weightanka portable deadweight roof anchor is a Class ‘E’ anchor device that is approved for use on all roof surfaces when wet and also for use downhill on metal clad roofs (subject to the addition of two extra weights). Roof surfaces include:

  • Single ply membrane asphalt
  • Steel cladding concrete
  • Stone chippings (brushed) mineral felt
The height safety equipment uses a central pedestal which raises the height at which the arrest force is applied, reducing the distance the anchor device moves during a fall arrest event.

This roof anchor will not penetrate the roof surface and the base layer weights are fully encased in rubber moulding. Additionally, there is no need for costly inertia reels.

Weightanka can be used by two workers simultaneously, providing they cannot get to less than 500mm from the edge.

This height safety device is simple and quick to assemble with few loose components.
