Combisafe has launched SkyReach Anchor, an overhead fall protection system compatible with all personal fall protection equipment (PFPE).

It has been tested and approved with Miller Falcon self-retracting lifelines suited to the fitting of decking for horizontal formwork, loading and unloading vehicles or working on a leading edge.

“Our customers tell us about real limitations with traditional overhead fall arrest systems, namely that they require a crane not just to install but every time they need to be repositioned,” said Wayne Kensett, product manager for Combisafe. “

The SkyReach Anchor is lightweight at 25 kg and portable and can be carried, installed and locked into position in seconds by a single worker without a crane.

There are two attachment options: the Cast-in Sleeve for use on concrete structures when decking formwork is carried out and the Steel Flange Clamp for use as a fall arrest system when loading and unloading vehicles next to a steel structure.

For formwork operations, the Cast-in Socket system provides 360 degree usability, its foldable boom and brace creating an 8.5 m operating radius and a working surface area close to 230m2.

The Steel Flange Clamp can be locked on to any steel column between 150 mm and 450 mm.
