Capital Safety Australia Introduces The Concrete Detent Anchor
Versatile fall protection anchor ideal for general concrete construction and maintenance on existing structures!
By: Capital Safety
Constructed from rugged, corrosion-resistant stainless steel, the Detent Anchor provides a simple and safe solution that allows users to connect and disconnect from an anchorage with the push of a button. The anchor consists of two parts: a socket that is permanently installed in concrete; and a removable detent pin with attached connection ring that is placed into the socket to form a secure, fall-arrest-
“Most concrete construction sites require a number of different anchorage points for personal fall arrest systems,” said Greg Peterson, Systems Manager for Capital Safety, Australia and New Zealand. “Capital Safety developed the concrete detent anchor to be used not only during construction, but also for ongoing maintenance and inspection, making it an ideal end-to-end solution.”
With the detent pin weighing in at less than one kilogram, the concrete detent anchor may be the most lightweight and portable anchor option for concrete construction and maintenance. Detent push-button operation makes anchor installation and removal simple. The user holds down the button while inserting the pin into a socket preset in concrete. Releasing the button locks the pin into place, securing the anchorage. To disconnect, simply push the button and the pin will be released from the socket. When a socket is not in use, a cap covers the recess, ensuring building aesthetics are not compromised.
Shock absorbing lanyards and self retracting lifelines can be connected to the forged connection ring on the detent pin. For added functionality, two anchors can be used as the endpoints for a horizontal lifeline system.
