In most cases, dealing with great heights requires one to have a complete anchorage kit, which includes anchor straps or fall protection straps. The anchors are supported by strong concrete-based beams that are specially meant for high rise fall protection. In most cases, the beams are connected to steel reinforcing beams that are exposed during construction after the first pour of concrete is complete. Once the concrete anchor is fixed to the steel reinforcing beams, a second layer of concrete is poured on the connection and left to heal. This leads to the formations of a very strong anchorage that cannot be undermined by forces regardless of their magnitude.
The concrete anchor is usually supported on two ends when dealing with high rise fall protection. Each end of the bar is anchored to steel reinforcing beams and concrete as discussed above. The mid-section of the concrete anchor bar is used to hold the fall protection straps that are used to protect the climber from falling during construction. The straps can be used comfortably to secure safety lanyards and harnesses that are connected to the gear of the constructor.
There are numerous precautions that should be followed whenever one is dealing with high rise fall protection kits. First of all, the kit should not be used if the anchorage is not embedded in concrete that has cured. This means that no form of fastener such as nails and screws should be used to hold the anchorage in place. Concrete is a very important aspect of the anchorage as it forms a stable support that can accommodate great forces. The supporting edge should not have any form of corrosion or cracks whatsoever as this means a point of weakness. Safety straps that have been exposed to fall arrest forces should be disposed and replaced immediately after the climber has been rescued.
