Why should you choose Weightanka?

Central Pedestal Design

Weightanka® both utilise a central pedestal that allows for the lanyard's attachment, raising the height at which the arrest force is applied. The central anchor device is then installed via a karabiner to a fall protection lanyard. The lanyard is attached to the user via their whole body harness compliant with EN 361. 

Modular Lanyard Length

The safe system of work will determine the specification of the lanyard required. If a connection to the system and the lanyard length prevents the user from reaching the fall hazard, the user is classed as working in work/fall restraint. In this situation, the user should use a fixed-length lanyard compliant with EN 354. 

Fully Compliant

Weightanka® conforms to Type E EN 795:1997 and is approved to meet the PPE Directive so that you can be sure of the best short term rooftop safety.
