SeamSAFE Introduces New D-Ring for Standing Seam Roof Anchors
D-RING ENHANCED TO ACCOMMODATE NEWLY CERTIFIED WEIGHT-BEARING CAPACITY
SeamSAFE has introduced a new d-ring for the company’s standing seam roof anchors. The roll-out of the upgraded d-ring follows the latest testing that certifies the anchor’s capability to support 10,520 pounds of weight.
While the latest testing demonstrates that SeamSAFE roof anchors support 10,520 pounds, the load is likely more. According to SeamSAFE inventor and owner Doug Mullins, the testing and certification facility did not have additional weight on hand to determine SeamSAFE’s ultimate load.
The new certification positions SeamSAFE anchors as best-in-class for holding strength. Following is a comparison of device load capability for leading anchors on the market.
- SeamSAFE Anchors - 10,520 pounds
- Competitor A – 5.000 pounds
- Competitor B – 5,000 pounds
The anchor works by separating the metal blocks, fitting them over the standing seam, and then torquing the bolts to 60 foot pounds with a box-end wrench. Single-wrench installation takes under a minute to complete.
In addition to more than double the weight-load capacity of other anchors, SeamSAFE anchors feature twice the holding surface. They are lightweight, easily transported and feature a low-profile.
SeamSAFE anchors function on a temporary or permanent basis. In addition to roofer fall protection, the anchors are used to attach solar panels, roof jacks, ladders and other devices to standing seam metal roofs. When fitted with SeamSAFE Mounting Adapters, the anchors safely secure heavy equipment such as HVAC units, satellite dishes, handrail systems, industrial piping, and other rooftop equipment.
