Vacuum Anchors

With a Vacuum Anchor System at your workers’ side, they can anchor to virtually any smooth, non-porous surface simply by flipping a switch and waiting for the green light. So whether they need to replace a broken strobe atop a jumbo jetliner or perform routine maintenance, they’ll always be able to quickly, and easily put themselves where they need to be—without putting themselves in danger.

Our anchorage connectors are built from top quality materials guaranteeing high strength and durability to stand up to the toughest environments. Anchorage connectors are the unsung heroes of most fall protection systems, often overlooked but critical components because they securely attach your system to the anchorage.

Your choice of anchor depends on the type of work being done. Anchorages are sold by what they connect to (general/all purpose, steel, concrete, roof or specialty), whether they are fixed or mobile, and whether they are permanent or portable. They all must provide a secure point of attachment for a complete personal fall arrest system, and must be capable of supporting a load of 5,000 lbs. (22kN) or of meeting OSHA’s criteria of a 2-to-1 safety factor.

I just wanted to take a minute to tell you that your crew did an excellent job here at our facility. I appreciate the crew keeping the job site clean, the training and how the project progressed. Phillip Sanders / State Farm Insurance
