CONCRETELINK ROOF ANCHOR
SafetyLink’s ConcreteLink is an extremely versatile anchor with a number of different eyebolt/insert combinations. The eyebolt range starts with SafetyLink’s Standard Eyebolt which is designed for fall arrest, it’s long tapered stem is designed to absorb energy while arresting a fall therefore reducing the load off the structure and the person in the event of a fall.
Alternatively SafetyLink’s Abseiling Eyebolt is a fall arrest rope access anchor which uses the same tapered concept as the standard eyebolt but incorporates a shorter design enabling the eyebolt to withstand a live load without activating the bending motion that occurs when arresting a fall. Where a low profile design is more desirable a Collared Eyebolt can be used to achieve this.
The SafetyLink Brass Cap helps keep the internal thread of the concrete insert clean and free from dirt and debris when the eyebolt is not present.
