Anchorage connectors join a connecting device (e.g., lanyard) to an appropriate anchorage when an existing connection does not exist.
For example, beam clamps can be used to create an anchor point anywhere along an I-beam. Cross arm straps can wrap around an I-beam or other appropriate structure to create a similar anchor point. Spider bolts and screw down metal roof anchors can be used to create anchor points on appropriate surfaces.
Both the anchorage and anchorage connector must be easily accessible, capable of supporting 5,000 lb (2,268 kg) of force per worker, and located high enough for a worker to avoid contact with a lower level should a fall occur.
Spider offers a variety of anchorage connectors for every application. All Spider anchorage connectors meet applicable OSHA requirements and ANSI standards for compliance and safety.
