Product Information
Rafterlink Roof Anchor

An anchor point designed for use on timber structures where there is easy access to the top of the rafter.

SafetyLink designs and manufactures height safety equipment roof anchors and lifeline systems which provides restraint and fall arrest safety for all buildings and industrial sites, from a series of roof anchor points to a complete network of systems for maintenance, cleaning, access and inspections where working at heights.

SafetyLink’s team designed the RafterLink with unique energy absorbing capabilities, to reduce the risk of injury to the person and damage to the structure.

A permanent roof anchor point designed for use on timber structures, the RafterLink can be purchased in a variety of configurations suitable for positioning on the top, side, and ridge of a timber rafter.

The RafterLink complete unit includes SafetyLink’s patented Standard Eyebolt. The Standard Eyebolt is designed for fall arrest, it’s long tapered stem is designed to absorb energy while arresting a fall therefore reducing the load off the structure and the person attached to the anchor. The length of the eyebolt also enables the eyebolt to protrude above the roof structure when installing into timber structures.

SafetyLink’s patented Abseil Eyebolt can also be adapted to the RafterLink forming an anchor from where you can abseil, creating a safe work station for hard to get to maintenance on buildings.

The RafterLink is a multi-directional anchor, a perfect height safety equipment solution in our current climate protecting our investments and working at heights safely.

The first RafterLink anchor point must be in a position easily and safely reached by a secured ladder or a manhole access area.

Install anchors only to timber strong enough to support the anchor point. Minimum timber size is 35mm by 90mm (grade F5). Inspect the timber for splits, cracks, knots and white ant damage. Ensure the timber structure is secured in accordance with Australian Building Codes.

RafterLink can be used with both the standard and abseiling eyebolts, the abseiling eyebolt is required on pitches greater than 30 degrees.
