One of the key components of any industrial fall protection system is the anchor point. If you have workers or equipment on rooftops, you must have a high-quality anchor point installed. It protects the safety of your workers and helps minimize damage to the surface you’re working on in the case of a fall.
We make it easy to find a high-quality anchor point for your job site. Browse our range of top-quality anchor points for industrial fall protection today to keep your team and equipment safe.
What is an Anchor Point in Fall Protection?
Anchor points are manually attached to a work surface using secure bolts. They are sunk into the work surface to provide maximum stability and resistance: they can hold up to heavy pressure if a worker or a piece of equipment falls.
They’re there to protect against falls over edges, of course, but also in case of falls through a surface. Some parts of rooftop surfaces aren’t always the sturdiest, and you need an anchor point in a secure part of the roof that will keep workers safe in case of a collapse.
Types of Anchor Point
Below are some of the most popular anchor point options we carry and how they can improve your work site.
Rigid Post Single Anchor Points
These models are perfect for roof surfaces with a pitch that is 5:12 or higher. They offer a secure tether for workers to move down the sloping roof and are also ideal for tethering materials that could fall on a slope. They’re also perfect for suspended activities like window washing.
The rigid post provides a more secure berth than other roofing materials that can’t withstand a falling load. As a result, you can use it in a wide array of industrial work sites (although it works best in clearly marked areas where the load doesn’t need to move far from the anchor) and is one of the most popular options.

Tip-Over Single Anchor Points
Tip-over models provide ideal tethering for roof surfaces with a pitch of 4:12 or below. This is because the tip-over mechanism lessens the impact of a fall on the incline. It spreads the impact area, allowing the surface to remain intact even with heavier tethered objects.
Like rigid post systems, these are best for work sites that don’t require a wide range for tethering. They’re easy to use and provide incredible security for workers or equipment when attached.

Portable Single Anchor Points
For temporary work sites, you may want to invest in a portable model. These are easy to attach to areas like parapet walls and door and window jams. They provide secure tethering without the need to set up a permanent system — they’re ideal for roof maintenance professionals and other industries where you may spend limited time working in an elevated area.
These options are also cost-effective and are a popular choice for temporary construction sites. So if you’re looking for OSHA-compliant portable anchor points to protect your workforce and equipment, get in touch with us today to learn more.
Vacuum Single Anchor Points
Vacuum anchor points are another excellent choice for temporary work sites. This is especially true for transport applications: maintaining trains and aircraft is far easier when you have a portable solution that can be moved to wherever you need it most. There’s no point investing in rigid solutions for applications where you’ll need a lot of mobility.
Vacuum points are anchored by compressed air and provide sturdy support to mitigate the risk of falling when you’re working on difficult surfaces. They can also be used in pairs to form a Horizontal Lifeline.
If you work in aviation or any sector where you need a high level of mobility and the best OSHA-compliant industrial fall protection, contact us today to learn more about our vacuum anchor points.
D-Ring Single Anchor Points
D-ring tethering systems are ideal if you’re working on walls or parapets. They’re easy to install and provide an extremely secure tethering point in difficult conditions. Like rigid points, they work best in areas where you don’t require a wide range of movement — however, the security they provide is considerable. They hold up better than almost any other solution in difficult conditions.
