Safe window cleaning
Window cleaning is a hazardous maintenance task carried out on most premises. On buildings where access is regularly required using a harness, consideration should be given to using safety eyebolts to attach the harness line to. Safety eyebolts are ideal for single working person, reducing a risk of fall whilst carrying out external window cleaning and general maintenance.
Eyebolts should be positioned so that the operative can attach their lanyard and safety harness before being at risk, ensuring safe access and personal protection in the event of an accidental slip or fall.
Kee i-bolt® safety eyebolts product range
Rope Task offers a comprehensive selection of Class A1 safety anchors designed to offer effective fall arrest protectionfor those carrying out high level window, façade cleaning or other building maintenance operations from an ‘open window’ position. However, it is important that the correct eyebolt is used to suit the material and the positioning is determined by a competent person.
The Kee i-bolt® range comprises two product brands named Ringanka® and Keyanka®. Independently tested at the NEL (National Engineering Laboratory), Ringanka® and Keyanka® products conform to EN 795, BS 7883 and ISO 14567 and are CE Approved to the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Directive.
Ringanka® anchor devices
The Ringanka® portfolio comprises fixed eyebolts in a choice of three different sizes for straightforward and secure wall installation, suitable for use in a range of materials. The safety eyebolt provides a fixed anchoring point, either external or internally within the building, where workers can attach a lanyard and safety harness to ensure safe access and personal protection in the event of an accidental slip or fall. Available in a polished stainless steel, galvanised or plastic-coated finish to blend with prestige building applications and different interior schemes, the safety eyebolt can be securely fitted to different building fabrics, including brick, concrete, masonry and steel. The eyebolts are supplied with knurled inserts and resin capsules to allow easy installation and removal for periodic inspection. A PPE warning disc can also be provided as part of the range.
Keyanka® removable anchor
Keyanka is a removable safety eyebolt offering an unobtrusive solution to traditional eyebolts in more prestigious buildings. The anchor socket is permanently installed but discreetly covered by a white plastic cover. When required for use, the cover is removed and the special ‘key-type’ eyebolt, typically attached to the worker’s lanyard, is inserted into the socket hole. A simple key action activates a spring locking movement to provide a fast and safe attachment whilst allowing 180° rotation to suit usage requirements.
