  • Technical Information

PBI's permanent truss mounted roof anchor is ideal for both residential and commercial applications. The anchor provides an economical solution for fall protection during the initial construction stage as well as future roof access and maintenance. All anchor components are manufactured from 316 grade stainless steel and is able to sustain a load of up to 15kN for single person use.


PBI Timber Fixed Anchor is designed to be installed on building roofs. The anchors provide fall protection and abseil for operatives doing a range of activities including roof wash downs, installing & maintaining HVAC air conditioning units, general maintenance, or gutter cleaning. The anchors are designed to support and hold a person in the event of a fall.


Anchorage provides a secure connection point for a fall protection system designed to stop a person from injuring themselves when there is a fall from height. The anchor is fixed to the timber roof structure with some additional bracing and is designed to deflect in the event of a fall. This reduces the loading on the structure and the operative.


Conforms to AS/NZS 1891.4:2009 - Industrial fall-arrest systems and devices - Selection, use, and maintenance, designed for and tested on most roof types, has been designed to withstand a 15kN load. All anchors are certified to the requirements of AS/NZS 5532 as a single-person fall arrest anchor point able to sustain a force of 15kN.




Installation must be carried out by an accredited PBI Certified Technician and in accordance with the manufacturer's installation instructions. Can be installed during roof construction or as a retrofit from the top of the roof surface.


As per AS/NZS 1891.4 the PBI4544 Timber Fix Anchor must be certified every 12 months by a qualified height safety equipment inspector. All of the exposed materials in the system have been specified as naturally corrosion-resistant, or have been coated with sacrificial coatings to prevent oxidization of the base material. It is important to consider that the system may need to be cleaned to gain the best possible life expectancy from the materials in some environments.


PBI warrants the timber fix anchor and its component parts against factory defects in workmanship and materials for 10-years from its date of original purchase. Conditions that must be fulfilled include the system must be installed in accordance with PBI's installation instructions. The system is inspected in accordance with PBI's inspection instructions and annually recertified by a certified installer.
