Adjustable Roof Anchor Also Aids Ladder Access on Steep-Slope Roofs

The RIDGEPRO is a versatile and adjustable roof anchor that can be connected to the peak before stepping onto a steep-slope roof, allowing a safe transition on and off ladders on roofs with pitches ranging from 6/12 to 12/12. The innovative arch straddles ridge vents, and the adjustable, pitch-specific settings are designed to maximize contact between the RIDGEPRO and the roof surface, offering faster access to the peak than standard rope-and-harness techniques, according to the manufacturer.

The product offers integrated rope-and-harness connection capabilities, is easy to assemble and install, and can be anchored for extended-access roofing requirements. Constructed from solid, aircraft-grade aluminum, it exceeds industry standard of 5,000-pound tensile strength test when anchored.

The RIDGEPRO features an etched pitch grid that allows the user to customize the setting for pitches ranging from 6/12 to 12/12 and four pre-drilled holes in its cross members for anchoring capabilities.

Using its integrated wheels, the user can push the RIDGEPRO to the peak of the roof with an extension pole, grip it to the ridge, and secure a lanyard to a personal fall arrest system before stepping onto the roof. It also helps make accessing the ladder more safe and secure when leaving the roof.

PowerGrip Universal reduces the need for ballast in solar racking systems, requiring less material handling and labor on the roof.

OMG Roofing Products has introduced PowerGrip Universal, a rooftop attachment anchor for mounting solar racking systems and other products to virtually any commercial roof. PowerGrip Universal is designed to reduce or eliminate the need for ballast in solar racking systems, so there’s less weight, material handling and labor on the roof.

PowerGrip Universal is designed with wind performance in mind and offers up to 3,300 lbf. (13.34 kN) of tensile strength, 2,500 lbf. (11.12 kN) of shear strength, and 2,000 lbf. (8.9 kN) of compressive load strength.

Made of cast aluminum, PowerGrip Universal units are designed with a base ring that gets secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof cover plate to keep water from infiltrating the roof assembly.

PowerGrip Universal units are easy to install, saving both time and labor when compared to alternative options. The system is designed to transfer the load to the structural roof deck, and does not require any membrane welding. PowerGrip Universal units are typically installed in less than five minutes.

In addition to commercial solar rack systems, PowerGrip Universal can be used for other roof mounted items such as pipe supports, step crossovers, raceways, satellite dishes, small antennas and HVAC applications.

Headquartered in Agawam, Mass., OMG Roofing Products is a manufacturer of commercial roofing products including specialty fasteners, insulation adhesives, edge metal systems, drains, pipe supports and productivity tools. The company’s focus is delivering products and services that improve contractor productivity and enhance roof system performance.
