Gridmesh Anchor

The Gridmesh Anchor (GMA) is a breakthrough product in personal fall protection. The patent-pending design allows a user to set a fall protection anchor point above a grid mesh clad structure across two supporting beams that distribute the load of any fall that occurs. The product can be set up quickly, without the risk of a fall, enabling a worker to access locations below safely without the need for scaffolding, rope technicians or elevated working platforms.

In recent times, the GMA has also been tested and approved for materials handling purposes as a mobile crane device, with a capacity of 1.2 tonne. It can be used to attach a chain-block and haul small loads and materials into place whilst technicians can complete service works.

The GMA is ideal for use in a multitude of industrial applications and industries, including oil & gas, petrochemical plants onshore and offshore drilling rigs, power stations to name just a few.

Within industry there are a large volume of improvised / temporary anchors set every day that will not pass the minimum requirements as a fall arrest anchor. Think about it this way – A standard passenger vehicle weighs about 1.5 tonnes. This is approximately equal to a static load of 15kN – the minimum load requirement for a personal fall arrest anchor. So ask yourself – if I set up a temporary fall arrest anchor – will it support the weight of my family car? Look at these examples of temporary anchors and judge for yourself……

These set ups are not rated, tested or proven to be able to take a fall arrest load.
