New Product Announcement: Safety Anchors
Global height safety specialist Guardian recently introduced three new anchors to its lineup, designed to reduce complexity and enhance ease of use. The anchors are anticipated to begin shipping between February and April.
“These three new products ... have been designed with the user in mind – featuring smart enhancements that we are confident will make a meaningful difference in the field," said Fabian Guerrero, Senior Product Manager.
The new A5 Concrete Expansion Anchor is a “lollipop”-style concrete anchor that features a pinch-free, ergonomic thumb rest and a clear protective cable wrap for easy inspection. Rated to 5,000 pounds, it is reportedly easily installed and removed for quick relocation.
Next, the Swivel Anchor is a 10,000-pound, 360-degree swiveling anchor designed for concrete or metal substrates. The main reusable component is reportedly compatible with any attachment method, reducing the number of required parts to cover a wider range of applications.
Finally, the Saddle Anchor, designed for installation directly onto wood structural beams, is available in 12-inch, 18-inch and 24-inch heights. Guardian reports that the product is fully ANSI, OSHA and Cal-OSHA compliant, as well as meets City of L.A. Approved Fabricator requirements.
According to the company, the anchors are complemented by custom anchor solutions and design consultancy available from its experienced Engineered Systems team.
“Our goal at Guardian is to give safety professionals solutions to every height safety need. In the event an end user’s needs go beyond our deep range, our expert Engineered Systems team members are ready to assist – working in partnership to develop a custom solution that perfectly meet user’s specific requirements,” said Don Thompson, Director of Engineered Systems.
