ManSafe Constant force post for roofing

Membrane Roofing

You can install a Latchways ManSafe fall protection solution incorporating the Constant Force Post on all the major membrane roofing systems including single-ply and bituminous on steel, concrete and timber decks. The system operates horizontally and along inclines and can be designed to accommodate up to three simultaneous users.

The Constant Force Posts are top fixed to the roof sheet with mechanical anchors or toggle bolts by a process that does not compromise the integrity of the roof. Equally important, in the event of a fall, all the loads generated on the system are absorbed by the Constant Force Posts and therefore no damage is impacted on the roof sheets to which they are attached.

To enhance the overall aesthetic appearance, the Constant Force Posts can be supplied colour matched to the roofing sheets.

System testing and maintenance should only be undertaken by trained and certified installers. Contact us at  safety@fallcert.com for details.
