SeamSAFE Roof Anchor
 

 

Manufactured by Construction Specialty Anchors LLC, the SeamSAFE Roof Anchor has been tested to meet or exceed OSHA and ANSI standards. This anchor is intended to be a part of a complete fall arrest system meeting all OSHA requirements. All users must read, understand, and follow these manufacturer instructions and warnings for each component of the system before use. Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death.

This device does not guarantee your safety. Use of this device is only expected to reduce the likelihood of serious injury and limit the fall distance if a fall occurs. Additional personal protective equipment should also be considered to limit the likelihood of a fall.

The SeamSAFE Roof Anchor is only for use with compatible equipment as determined by a competent roofing professional. The user should wear a full-body harness and a shock-absorbing lanyard designed to reduce fall forces to 900 lbs. and to limit free fall to less than 6 feet, thereby reducing forces on the body to less than 1,800 lbs.

The SeamSAFE Standing Seam Roof Anchor is compatible with standing seam metal roof panels only if the roofing system is installed using the roofing-system manufacturer’s instructions. Construction Specialty Anchors accepts no liability or responsibility for the safety of the user when using the

SeamSAFE Roof Anchor on a roofing system that is not installed according to the roof-system manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines.

Federal, state, and local laws and regulations (including but not limited to OSHA and ANSI) must be followed when installing, using, and removing fall protection equipment. These manufacturer instructions are to be incorporated into your safety program and used as part of an employee training program for the SeamSAFE Roof Anchor.

It is the purchaser’s responsibility to ensure that all users are provided with and have access to these manufacturer instructions and that they read and follow them carefully. If you have any questions concerning the compatibility, application, installation, use, or maintenance of the SeamSAFE Roof Anchor, please call 855-263-1521.

Failure to inspect, install, use, and/or remove equipment in a safe manner by skilled and trained craftsmen can result in serious injury or death. Each application will be different. You must plan for and follow safe work practices for each installation and removal of safety equipment.

The SeamSAFE Roof Anchor is designed for individual use on a standing seam roof. Maximum capacity is one person per anchor. The support structure must be capable of sustaining a 5,000 lb. static load. The user is responsible for determining which types of standing seam panels on which to use the SeamSAFE Roof Anchor. For a review of the SeamSAFE Roof Anchor’s compatibility with a specific standing seam metal roof system, please call 855-263-1521.

 

CLEANING & STORAGE

The SeamSAFE Roof Anchor must be kept clean and free from dirt, dust, debris, rocks, corrosives, and other elements. Before and after each use, ensure the anchor is clean by wiping off surfaces and components. If necessary, use mild soap and water to clean the equipment, and then rinse and dry. When not in use, store the anchor in a cool dry place away from moisture, chemicals, and other elements that could harm it.

 

ANCHOR INSPECTION

Before installing a SeamSAFE Roof Anchor, an authorized, competent roofing professional must inspect the device for damage and defects. If damage or defects are found, do not use the device. After installation, inspect the anchor each day before use. Do not use the device if it was involved in a fall-arrest incident.

A competent roofing professional also must complete a formal inspection of the anchor a minimum of every six months and maintain an inspection log. The inspection log may be similar to the format below. It must include the date of first use and allow space for the competent roofing professional to initial after each six-month inspection. The inspection log must be visible and available to all users at all times.

ANCHOR INSTALLATION

 

  1. Create a secure safe zone and tie-off while anchor is being installed.
  2. Use the clip included with the anchor to attach the anchor to your harness, which will allow you to be hands-free as you climb the ladder. The harness used must meet OSHA standards.
  3. The anchor must be positioned a minimum of 4 feet away from the eave or any unprotected edge.
  4. Attach the anchor by separating the two aluminum blocks and clamping them on a single standing seam of a metal roof. Never place anything between jaws of the device and the roof sheets. Metal-to-metal contact is required.
  5. Check to make sure that the flange of the clamp is hooked under the seam over a clip that is fastened down before tightening the bolts.
  6. Snug the center bolt followed by both end bolts. (This includes washers, nuts, and locking nuts.) Then use the same sequence to torque the bolts to greater than 70 ft. lbs.* This can be achieved using a 12” long 3⁄4” box-end wrench. This should be verified using a torque wrench.*Note – Torque is NOT to exceed 100 ft. lbs.*
  7. Attach your personal harness/lanyard system to the anchor. Make sure harness does not have enough slack to allow you to fall over the edge of the roof. Although the anchor will hold securely if the user falls over the edge of the roof, it is designed to break the user’s fall on the roof.
  8. If using multiple SeamSAFE Roof Anchors across a single roof area, place the anchors two or more roofing panel seams apart. Do not use more than one anchor per seam on panel sizes under 35 feet in total length.

 Some roof material may be scratched, dimpled, dented, or bent by use of this device, if not handled appropriately and carefully.  This is more likely to happen if workers pull or push on the anchor, if workers are rough in placement/ removal of the anchor, or during a fall arrest. If damage occurs, the user is responsible for repairing marks, scratches, or other damage to roofs.

 

SeamSAFE Roof Bracket

 

SeamSAFE Roof Brackets are designed for use only with SeamSAFE Roof Anchors. A minimum of two SeamSAFE Roof Anchors and SeamSAFE Roof Brackets are required for all applications, however some applications may require more than two. This must be determined by an authorized, competent roofing professional.

Note: Always use a separate SeamSAFE Roof Anchor for personal fall-arrest protection during the installation and use of SeamSAFE Roof Brackets.

 

BRACKET INSPECTION

Before installing SeamSAFE Roof Brackets, an authorized, competent roofing professional must inspect devices for damage. Do not use if damaged. After installation, inspect brackets each day before use.
