Live Load on Anchors: The TileLink anchor is best suited to roof pitches up to 30 degrees. For over 30 degrees TileLink anchors should be used in conjunction with other access methods to ensure no live loading.

Note: These anchors are not abseil anchors and therefore if they are subjected to a live load this may trigger the energy absorbing regions.

All installed height safety systems require regular scheduled periodic inspection in accordance with the AS/NZS 1891.4.2009 Standard and manufacturers instruction.

What is included in an anchor recertification/inspection?

Anchorages shall be visually inspected for signs of deterioration which might make them unserviceable, together with any other requirements contained in the manufacturer’s instructions.

The parent structure shall also be visually inspected for modifications or deterioration which might lead to loss of anchorage strength.

Frilled-in anchorages such as friction or glued-in anchorages shall be proof testing in accordance with AS/NZS 1891.4:2009 – Industrial Fall-Arrest Systems and Devices, Section 3 Anchorages, Clause 3.1.2(g) as part of each inspection.

What happens if an anchor fails an inspection or doesn’t gain a recertification?

In accordance with the Standards (AS/NZS 1891.4:2009 – Industrial Fall-Arrest Systems and Devices), any anchor which has arrested a fall or shows defect shall be withdrawn from service immediately and a replacement obtained if necessary.

A label indicating the condition or defect will be attached to the anchor and system before it is inspected by a height safety inspector who will device whether the equipment is to be destroyed or repaired if necessary and returned to service. In the latter case, details of any repairs will be documentary and a copy given to the building owner or manager.
