Tieback Anchors are strictly regulated by provincial and federal government agencies.

High Engineering rigid post tieback anchors are used for suspended platforms, window washing operations, equipment tie-back, and rooftop fall protection.

Considering that most roofs vary in construction and design, tieback anchors must be engineered for a building’s specific construction. Because of their high-risk application, tieback anchors must meet their own inspection and testing criteria.

High Engineering is adept at designing and providing a solution for your specific roof type as well as performing initial and subsequent inspections and testing. As required by the regulations and applicable standards, we provide engineered layouts and system use procedures within our project specific user manuals.


Designed to resist more than a ton of force generated during a fall, our rigid roof anchors resist a pull-out force of 5400lbs, making them one of the most effective rooftop fall protection options.

Versatile Attaching

Our rigid posts can be fitted with a variety of attaching hardware to address a wide range of applications including stainless U-bar, Horizontal Lifeline components, Forged D-ring, and Swivel D-Ring.

Versatile Mounting

Whether your project involves adding posts to an existing roof structure or during the construction process, our rigid tieback anchors have mounting options to meet your needs.


Complies with all relevant and applicable North American regulations and design standards including CSA Z271 Safety Code for Suspended Platforms, and CSA Z91 Health and Safety Code for Suspended Equipment Operations.
