Stainless Steel Diamond EN795:2012 Class A Anchor

Part No. IN689

TESTED TO EN795.2012 CLASS A and requirements of BS 8610 Draft May 2017.

Uses

The IN689 stainless steel diamond anchorage point is designed to be permanently installed on a structure so that an anchor device, or personal protective equipment can be attached to it, facilitating safe working at height.

The padeye is appropriate for two person use for both fall arrest and rope access with an energy absorber to EN 355. It is large enough to allow articulation, will accommodate karabiners, and is cost-effective.

Q: On what structures can padeyes be fastened?

A: Padeyes should be fastened to solid/rigid structures that meet the load capabilities of the product, and where hole positions do not compromise structural integrity. Following the fastening specifications is the installer’s responsibility. We do NOT recommend fastening padeyes to concrete or masonry unless through-bolted.

Q: How should I test padeyes for human anchorage?

A: When tested, anchor installations should meet local standards. All installations should be correctly specified, design-proofed, and load tested to ensure they meet these safety standards. Periodic inspections by competent personnel should include a load test every 12 months for fall arrest, or 6 months for human suspension to ensure standards are maintained.

Q: Do you need training to install padeyes for human anchorage?

A: Yes. When installing an anchor for human anchorage, it is crucial that installation procedures are properly designed and executed. This must be done by trained, competent personnel as defined by local regulations, with certification provided by the Installation company.

Q: What fastenings should I use when installing a padeye?

A: Harken recommends a minimum of A2 70 grade stainless steel bolts that meet the stated size of the padeye. The fasteners/anchors are dependent on structure type and characteristics, but should match or exceed the design load for the anchor as stated in the local standard.

You must carefully read, understand, and follow all of the warnings and instructions in the User Manual provided by Harken in order to avoid an accident. Never, under any circumstances, exceed the maximum rated load.

This product is part of a personal fall-arrest system. It is the installers responsibility to ensure the suitability of base materials into which the structural anchor device is fixed. Alterations or misuse of this equipment, or failure to follow these instructions, may result in a fall or failure to arrest a fall leading to serious injury or dealth.
