Original Press Release:
New Rotating Anchorage Point for Maximum Freedom of Movement
XSPlatforms is introducing a new anchorage point with a 360° rotating safety eye: the XTS-Globe. The rotating safety eye provides maximum freedom of movement while working at heights. The XTS-Globe is our own innovation and can be installed straight on to the roof covering.
Safety. The XTS-Globe offers safety and ease of use to everyone who works at heights.
The XTS-Globe is designed to be used as a detachable roof anchorage point. Inspection is possible at any time (visually or by means of a tensile test), without activating the anchorage point. The XTS-Globe provides the same level of safety as traditional anchorage systems: the system has a CE mark and EN 795 class A certification.
Installation. The XTS-Globe can be installed straight onto the roof covering. The XTS-Globe can be used on practically all types of roofs and is more cost-effective than other, conventional anchorage systems. The XTS-Globe is simple to install on roofs made of concrete, hollow section concrete and steel. Positioning is four to five times faster than conventional anchorage points. The XTS-Globe is mounted directly onto the existing roof cladding without extra construction costs or prior preparations. The XTS-Globe can then be mounted straight onto the base plate. A shock absorber is required in the mobile fall line. In the unlikely event of a fall the shock absorber absorbs the energy released. After such a fall the XTS-Globe can easily be replaced without damage to the roof. At all times the roof remains watertight.
Availability. The XTS-Globe can be purchased through a select worldwide network of distributors. The distributors can also assemble and inspect it. The XTS-Globe should be inspected every year by one of our authorized partners.
