Weightanka Deadweight Anchor System

Portable Dead Weight Fall Arrest Anchor Providing Protection for Roof Top Workers

Weighing up to 660 lb, with no single component weighing more than 55 lb, Weightanka is a mobile, deadweight anchor system for use on roofs up to 5 degree pitch. The quick-to-assemble system features a central attachment point which raises the height where the arrest force is applied. Used with personal protection equipment such as harnesses, lanyards, and retractable lifelines, the unit provides fall arrest for one worker or fall restraint for two workers.


  • Galvanized to BS EN ISO 1461
  • Rubber molded base weights prevent rubber pads 'peeling' at the edges
  • Over 100 suction cups molded into each rubber bonded weight to maximize grip
  • Fall restraint up to 2 workers providing they cannot get to less than 20 inches from the edge
  • Raised central pedestal reduces distance of travel during a fall arrest event

Fall Restraint

Fall Restraint Systems Prevent a Fall from Happening - Weightanka can bee used as a fall restraint system. In this case the worker is tied off to a lanyard that keeps them back a distance of 20" from the roof edge. Used in this configuration, several workers can tie off to the same anchor point.

Fall Arrest

Fall Arrest Systems Stop a Fall In Progress - Weightanka can also be used as a part of a fall arrest system for workers who need to work on or near the leading edge of a roof top.
