Ladder Attachment Accessory Adds to Versatility of Standing Seam Roof Anchors

SeamSAFE ladder attachment SeamSAFE introduces a ladder attachment that extends the utility and versatility of the company’s safety anchors designed specifically for standing seam roofs. SeamSAFE Ladder Attachments are used with SeamSAFE anchors to enable roofers to easily affix a ladder to a standing seam roof for access to different roof areas and upper levels. The ladder attachments can also be used on mansard roofs or to permanently mount a ladder to a standing seam vertical surface.

The ladder attachment is one of three new accessories offered by the company, including SeamSAFE’s toe board attachment and retractable lanyard disk, which protects roofs from damage due to falling or dragging retractable lanyards. SeamSAFE’s new products are engineered to pair with SeamSAFE anchors.

According to SeamSAFE inventor and owner Doug Mullins, “We developed our new accessories in response to feedback from roofers who are seeking better and more efficient solutions to the challenges of working on a standing seam roof.”

The ladder and toe board attachments serve double duty since they can be used for fall arrest protection at the same time they are being used to secure a ladder or toe board. The attachments are designed with an extra hole that allows roofers to tie off during projects. This eliminates the need to purchase an additional anchor to guard against falls.

The new products add to SeamSAFE’s existing line of anchor accessories, which include SeamSAFE Roof Brackets and SeamSAFE Adapters. The company’s brackets are used by roofers for mounting a temporary rooftop walkboard or staging area for gear and materials. The adapters provide a means to temporarily or permanently install a wide range of equipment to rooftops.

“With the addition of our three new accessories, SeamSAFE anchors are now more functional than ever in serving the needs of anyone working on a standing seam roof,” Mullins said.

Enhanced D-Ring Offered for Standing Seam Roof Anchors

SeamSAFE has introduced a new D-ring for the company’s standing seam roof anchors. The roll-out of the upgraded D-ring follows the latest testing that certifies the anchor’s capability to support 10,520 pounds of weight. Previously, SeamSAFE anchors were certified to support 5,000 pounds.

After testing, Mullins developed the enhanced D-ring to accommodate the newly certified holding strength of SeamSAFE anchors. The updated D-ring, comprised of quarter-inch stainless steel, is now included in all anchor purchases. Roofers using anchors with the original D-ring may contact SeamSAFE at (855) 263-1521 to receive the new D-ring at no charge. The change in D-ring will accommodate a load increase from 5,000 to 10,520 pounds.

Made in the USA, SeamSAFE anchors feature two metal blocks that are manufactured with 6061-T aircraft aluminum. The blocks are designed and cut to house the D-ring in the center of the anchor and clamp on a single standing seam of a metal roof. The blocks are connected by three grade-8 shank bolts that have lock washers and nuts.

The anchor works by separating the metal blocks, fitting them over the standing seam, and then torquing the bolts to 60 foot-pounds with a box-end wrench. Single-wrench installation takes under a minute to complete.

In addition to more than double the weight-load capacity of other anchors, SeamSAFE anchors feature twice the holding surface, according to the manufacturer. They are lightweight, easily transported and feature a low-profile.

SeamSAFE anchors function on a temporary or permanent basis. In addition to roofer fall protection, the anchors can be used to attach solar panels, roof jacks, ladders and other devices to standing seam metal roofs. When fitted with SeamSAFE Mounting Adapters, the anchors can safely secure heavy equipment such as HVAC units, satellite dishes, handrail systems and industrial piping. SeamSAFE has introduced a new D-ring for the company’s standing seam roof anchors.
