On flat roofs where temporary protection is required, our portable horizontal lifeline system is a non-penetrating option.

Our freestanding roof anchors are the ideal solution to provide worker safety at heights where there is an occasional or temporary requirement to access flat roofs or structures.

This portable, non-penetrating, dead weight anchor system can be used on roofs that have a pitch of 5 degrees or less. No individual component of the freestanding roof anchor system weighs more than 56 lbs. and each weight includes built-in handles so it can be easily deployed and quickly put to use. This versatile system can be installed on several types of roofs, including: Single Ply Membrane, Asphalt, Mineral Felt, Concrete, Stone Chippings (Brushed), and more.

Easy to Use

When used with an appropriate lanyard and harness the raised pedestal of the portable lifeline system features a raised attachment point which reduces fall arrest travel distance.

Easy Setup

Designed for wet or dry rooftops with up to a 5-degree pitch, this non-penetrating dead-weight lifeline system does not require welding, bending, threading or special tools or hardware to assemble.

Safe & Effective

When used as properly this system provides a level of safety and protection that complies with relevant work at height regulations such as CSA Z259.16, ANSI Z359.6, BS EN 795


Provides work restraint to up to two users and fall arrest to single users when workers are not able to approach within 20 inches of a roof edge or opening.
