Wireanka – Deadweight Linked Horizontal Lifelines
Wireanka® is a system of deadweight anchor devices designed to support horizontal, flexible lifelines to EN795 Type C. It is intended for use on nominally flat roofs (max 5° slope), where the absence of appropriate anchors or anchor points would otherwise preclude a safe means of access. It is also a preferable solution where the penetration of the roof surface be avoided.
The system utilizes Weightanka units, connected via the combination of KeeLine horizontal lifeline components. The components are easily bolted into the anchor pedestal, allowing for the connection of 8mm stainless steel cable. The connecting travelling device is locked onto the cable and easily passes intermediary support brackets and 90 and 45 degree corners.
The traveler device is fixed via a karabiner to a fall protection lanyard. The lanyard is attached to the user via their full body harness compliant to EN 361. The safe system of work will determine the specification of the lanyard required.
If connection to the system and the lanyard length, prevents the user from reaching the fall hazard (work/fall restraint), the user should use a fixed length lanyard, compliant to EN 354.
If the system design requires a lanyard length that potentially allow a user to fall (Fall arrest) an energy absorbing lanyard compliant to EN 355 must be used. These devices ensure that the maximum arresting force transferred back to the user do not exceed 6kN.
Retractable type fall arrest devices are not tested as compatible for use with Wireanka, and should be not used with this product.
Flat Roof – PVC Membrane, Bitumen & Asphalt
The arrangement of anchors and PPE enables continuous connection to the safety lifeline, allowing for 100% personal protection as the user navigates the roof surface.
All Horizontal lifeline components and cable are stainless steel, Grade 316.
WireAnka must not be used as a support for rope access (abseiling) systems, an alternative product, AccessAnka®, is available for this purpose.
A standard Wireanka® supported wire system may support up to TWO users for Fall Arrest, and an unlimited number of users in RESTRAINT, depending upon layout and application.
