When working at height, the use of eyebolts is the most popular method of fall protection. They can be sited in brick, masonry, concrete, steel, wood or through a cavity wall. They can be utilised as restraint, work positioning or fall arrest. However, they must only be used for the purpose they were installed. All Dynamic Access London eyebolts are equipped with a warning disc informing the end user of their specific use. This will be either Restraint, Work positioning or Fall arrest.
We guarantee all our installers are independently trained and certified in the installation, inspection and testing of eyebolts.
The positioning of any eyebolt is extremely important. Our experience working at heights ensures we have a unprecedented understanding of the positioning of the eyebolts to ensure the safest / most practical placement. It is often necessary to install multiple eyebolts at a site, enabling movement if the work area is large. The use of twin lanyards is sometimes required to ensure constant connection.
When installed a knurled threaded sleeve is secured into the structure with a two-part resin system. Once cured, an eyebolt is screwed into the insert to the required torque setting. The anchor is then tested by applying force away from the structure, in the opposite direction to which the eyebolt was applied.
All the eyebolts we use conform to BS EN 795 and are installed and tested in accordance with BS 7883:2005. The Code of Practice for the design, selection, installation, use and maintenance of anchor devices conforming to BS EN 795.
Recertification: ~ BS 7883:2005 States that at least once every 12 months the anchor device should be examined in accordance with the manufacturers instructions, by a competent person authorised by the manufacturer. If used for work positioning or rope access they will be inspected every six months.
Our eyebolts are manufactured from either high tensile carbon steel with galvanised or plastic-coated finish or bright polished 316 grade stainless steel.
