Static lines

Travel restraint systems - Permanent static lines & Temporary static lines

Static lines also known as a horizontal static line system or a travel restraint system, prevent 
user's from moving into a fall hazard area by limiting their movement beyond a certain point. This is commonly used when it’s not possible to use a physical barrier like a guard rail or scaffolding as edge protection or where end anchor points may not be the best solution 

Static line systems and Australian standards 

ANKAme static line systems are fully compliant to Australian standards AS/NZS 1891.2:2001 supplement 1:2001 part 2, as per the falls code of practice

The kind of height safety arrangement used in a roof anchor static line system would be two ANKAme roof anchors conjoined with one stainless steel static line cable (Generic set length 7.6 meters with twin adjusters and a single load indicator attached to the static line system)

Static line AS/NZS requirements clearly state that a static line system must be installed and used by a "competent person as per manufactures installation user manual" if in doubt ask. The harness rope is then connected to the static line as per manufactures instructions and user guide, which is then connected to the user's harness connected by a shock absorber lanyard. This might be a temporary roof anchor static line set up for a one-off job or permanent roof anchor static line arrangement for more frequent roof maintenance.

What is a static line system

A roof anchor static line system consist of using a combination of compliant height safety products, that include tested and complaint end roof anchor points that are rated to 15kN of "load" and must comply with AS/NZS 1891.4:2009 requirements, roof anchors are generally attached to either end of the static line cable. The static line cable must meet minimum braking strengths as outlined in AS/NZS 1891.2:2001 Supplement 1:2001 part 2, the static line cables are generally attached to the end roof anchor points and the static line cable is then tightened using a inbuilt adjuster that can be easily adjusted manually, there is a load indicator at the end if the static line system that is released once the static line has been adjusted to the correct tension. The ANKAme static line installation method for permanent static lines and temporary static lines is the same method, products must be installed and used by a competent person as per manufactures installation user manuals and AS/NZS.

We recently purchased 6 roofer kits from ANKAme height safety and are very happy with the quality and usability of the products, the roof anchors are very easy to install as they come with QR user guide and colour coded installation instructions on each anchor. Perfect for what we need.

Totally recommend this product for anyone wanting compliant height safety products to keep their staff safe when working at heights.

I recently purchased temporary roof anchoring equipment and found the product very easy to use, made of quality materials - essential for working safely on roofs. The equipment arrived in satisfactory time with no hassles. I would definitely use ANKAme again for roof safety equipment.

I bought an Ankame temporary anchor point more than a year ago. My business is building repairs & maintenance so we are often on domestic roofs. It is easy to use and was delivered promptly. I highly recommend this product.
