Standing seam roofs are very popular for a variety of reasons, their modern look, the fact that they last a long time, or the way they protect the structure. But when working on said roofs, workers need to be able to tie off in order to work safely. However, traditional fall protection measures often cannot be installed on the standing seams without damaging them. For this reason special anchorage points have been developed.
The XTrusion base plate, for example, provides a fall protection anchor point for standing seam roofs. The base plate is connected to the roof structure through clamps that pinch around the roof seam. This means no penetration of the roof occurs, ensuring that the roof remains watertight.
