Engineering

When roof anchors are non-existent or exist in insufficient quantities around the periphery of the roof, window cleaners performing suspended maintenance work tend to improvise, sometimes with tragic consequences. However, the foundation for window window cleaning operations to be conducted properly is for buildings to have engineered safety anchorage points that are designed and certified by a registered professional engineer …

Supply and Install

Due to liability issues, Pro-Bel window cleaning equipment is installed either under “Sole Responsibility Contracts” or furnish only with installation by others utilizing a strictly controlled sign-off and certification procedure.

Engineering a Complete Anchor System: Part 1

Fall arrest and tie-back anchors are primarily designed to protect workers from falls while working on or over the roof edge. While a clear understanding of codes, regulations, and standards is of the utmost importance; the first consideration (after safety of course) is function when designing proper window washing, suspended maintenance, and fall protection systems.  Often buildings will install a …
