The Omega cast-in anchor system has been designed specifically to provide anchorage positions at floor level.

The anchor consists of a visible plastic protective housing containing a steel element that when embedded in concrete provides a connection point for a webbing sling, that in turn connects to a Temporary Lifeline, Lanyard or Work Positioner.

Cast-in anchorages offer the opportunity to plan safety anchor points early in the construction process meaning that concrete drilling and load testing is avoided.

Working in conjunction with us, we can provide advise for anchor point positions supported with setting-out plans in autocad format for site users.

Anchors are set in a pair’s or as single lanyard points in pre-designed positions to provide anchor points around the buildings perimeter.

They are simply pushed into wet concrete until the cover cap is level with the finished floor level.

When cast-in pairs for lifeline anchorage, it is advisable to align the steel bars in the parallel direction to the lifeline.

Restraint Sling Assemblies link the pairs of anchorages at each end of the lifeline.
These are threaded into the anchors

And connected together as a pair using a 35kN rated karabiner

A temporary Lifeline is connected to the restraint slings and when tensioned forms the anchorage running line for up to four operatives simultaneously.

A temporary Lifeline is attached to each end of the sling assembly and tensioned.

This forms the anchorage running line onto which the operative working on the perimeter attaches to, connecting the rear harness point to the lifeline with an Adjustable Work Positioning lanyard.
