Fall Protection Distributors has Released a Horizontal Lifelines Collection

All of the horizontal lifelines are made from high-quality materials and are backed by strong warranties. They are extensively tested and awarded industry-backed safety and weight ratings. In addition to being tough and reliable, the systems are also designed for ease of use. Most systems can be deployed in a matter of minutes, needing only an anchor and attached personal gear in order to function. Systems also include shock absorbers, automatic retractors, and additional safety features that make them easier and safer to use.

Even with the larger lifelines, assembly does not require specialized tools or know-how. The larger systems can simultaneously anchor up to eight workers at a time, and no specialized engineering is necessary for deployment. Any worker can safely operate these safety devices in order to protect themselves while they go about their business.

The collection can be categorized into two different applications. Roof trussing and upgrade kits make up the bulk of the listings and provide enough safety for the majority of roof-related work. Each item in the catalogue was carefully selected to do a common job in horizontal and fall safety.

Roof trussing systems provide sustained protection for workers in high places. The FallTech 2 person system provides 50 feet of security in a simple trussing system that provides shock absorption and self-retraction. It is perfect for work on smaller roofs and sections. With 50 feet of the safety line, two workers can get a lot done.

The four-person system takes the same principles and extends protection with variable length ropes ranging from 30 to 100 feet. As jobs get more complicated, the variable options in this kit allow for more flexibility without compromising the core premise of safety.

For temporary setups, the Malta 60’ Cable Assembly is perfect. It has adjustable cabling and shock absorbers, all designed for work from elevated concrete or I-beams. The two posts and fall protection cable assembly are incredibly easy to use and fast to deploy. The entire kit consists of three certified pieces, making it one of the simplest assemblies available.

Upgrade kits are also available for improving roof stability and the overall functionality of anchor systems. The SSRA 100’ kit provides 4 anchors with 2 anchor plates. It includes line tensioners, carabiners, o-rings, and cross arm straps, plus a storage bag to keep it organized and ready to move. It works in conjunction with existing SSRA1 anchors and SSRA3 anchor plates to expand the system and keep more people safe at variable distances.

The Ultimate Pro Pack pushes safety to a whole new level with 8 SSRA1 anchors and 4 roof jacks. It includes a torque wrench, a 100’ horizontal lifeline, 5,000-lbs. D-ring and everything needed for assembly and use. Designed specifically for roofing contractors and solar installers, it is an ideal system for a wide range of work. It is also supported by a lifetime warranty.

Horizontal lifelines are essential to an entire industry of work. People performing tasks on high surfaces need fall protection, and they can get it from the items in this catalogue. You can browse the entire collection at Fall Protection Distributors. Additional catalogues and safety tools are available for vertical protection, roof clamping and more. When you need lifelines or protection for work that takes place off of the ground, you can find it with Fall Protection Distributors.

Web Designer and Comic Book Enthusiast, Brennen Jones, is Changing How Businesses Get Online by Becoming Their Web “Superhero”

“Everyone needs a website.”

That’s always been Brennen Jones’ motto whenever he comes across anyone looking to debate him on the merits on whether or not they should invest in getting a website built for their business. Or whether one is even needed at all.

“The world is at our fingertips at the push of a button. In this day and age, when everyone is online, I really don’t understand how a business can even think that it’s even okay to not have a website,” Brennen explains.

“If you want a website and price is an issue. Because for many people it is, especially during this pandemic. It still doesn’t mean that you should accept any old solution. You have options. You don’t have to settle.”

This is where Brennen and his company P.S. Web Pros come into play. They’ve marketed themselves to be a hero of sorts. The “web hero” that you and your business deserve and need. Brennen has been doing this for well over 15 years and takes pride in being able to help brands and businesses find their way online.

“I’m a comic book nerd. I mean the type of nerd who has the entire Black Panther comic book collection on hand, and the reason why I bring Black Panther up is that he’s a hero that has always been about his people and helping them out with whatever problems they may have or facing those problems together. It’s like how when Thanos showed up in Wakanda, Black Panther was right there and on the frontlines. This is what I meant earlier when I said how one should never settle for a website. I’ve seen folks scammed paying 20 bucks or something like that for a website. And the site simply isn’t functional at all nor does it have a professional look.”

“Like Black Panther, we’ll face that problem of you getting online together. I’ve developed a system that will give you that professional presence that you should have for your brand, for as low as $99 by us working together with one another.”

“We have other packages as well that are higher priced, but the endgame (pun intended) for anyone who contacts us and is in need of an online presence, is to simply get them online. We have options for every budget.”

P.S. Web Pros will share with their clients their knowledge and tricks of the trade, in order for them to make the best-informed decision and create a true partnership…like Batman and Robin.

And of course, T’Challa and Shuri.

Revolutionary Fall Protection With Zero Damage to Rooftops

Lemoyne, Pa. May 12, 2021 – Homeowners, building owners, contractors and managers can now work safely on standing seam roofs without worrying about damage to panels. The Standing Seam system uses superior anchorage attachment, certified at an independent ISO 17025/ANSI Z359.18 certified materials testing facility. A wide variety of Standing Seam Roof Anchor (SSRA) systems are available for immediate purchase.

Capable of withstanding 14,500 pounds, the SSRA far outstrips the required 5,000 pounds specified by OSHA and ANSI. When the system did ultimately fail, the attachment bolts sheared, leaving the panel itself completely unharmed. (Test anchor body was made of aluminum.) Nearly 10,000 pounds above the required limit and thousands of pounds above all other manufacturers, the Standing Seam Roof Anchor is an inimitable product.

Despite the massive load-bearing capacity and fall protection, however, the SSRA isn’t heavy at all. In fact, an anchor made for one person weighs only 4.5 pounds. That makes it simultaneously both the strongest and the lightest one ever made. It is easy to adjust and move, making it the ideal choice for either temporary or permanent attachment.

No need to buy different products for different jobs or job sites, however. The Standing Seam Roof Anchor boasts a universal design, and therefore works on more than 500 different panel types. These official “panel profiles” included t-seams, bulb seams, SnapLok, single lok, double lok, MR-24 and more. In addition to strongest and lightest, the SSRA is also the most widely applicable. Users can take it from roof to roof without the need to switch out parts, reassemble it or use different systems completely. Consequently, the savings in time, money and effort are considerable.

Components also withstand the test of time. Made of heavily tested stainless steel and aluminum materials, the anchor withstands salt spray and other adverse weather. It takes well to powder coating, so it’s simple to blend permanent anchor installations into the surrounding roof color. The low-profile attachment makes fixed installations even harder to see. This also minimizes tripping.

Another noteworthy characteristic of the Standing Seam Roof Anchor is its ability to withstand the full 5,000 pounds required in every direction of pull. That means workers can count on the roof anchor to prevent accident or injury no matter where they are in relation to the anchor. Working downward, to either side, upward or even up and over the top of the roof, the anchor provides equal protection. That minimizes the need for workers to adjust their anchors on the job. Instead, it gives them freedom of movement to focus on the task at hand.

The SSRA system isn’t just for people. Because it can handle such large loads, it is also ideal for devices and machinery. Users can attach walk boards, SRLs, ladders, horizontal lifelines and roof jacks with equal ease. Get anchors for everyone in the crew as well as all heavy tools frequently in use, and trust to them to keep the jobsite safe for everyone – and every expensive piece of equipment.

Minimize scratching when frequently attaching or detaching the Standing Seam Roof Anchor with recommended Nylon Tipped Set Screws. This will keep roofs looking nice for years to come. These work just as well with the patented universal fit design of the SSRA, and are reusable over and over again. Installation requires nothing more than a torque wrench that reads to inches per pounds, as well as a 3/16-inch hex bit socket. Nothing could be simpler.

The website makes it easy to reorder screws, pair robes and shock absorbers with the SSRA system, and find an appropriate torque wrench, if contractors and workers don’t already have one on hand.

Roofers looking to support American industry will find the Standing Seam Roof Anchor a bonus as well. It’s made in the United States with a Lifetime Life Saving Warranty. Users never again have to worry about paying for a replacement, and profits go to support American businesses. The Standing Seam Roof Anchor is available in a significant number of options, from different attachments to contractor kits that include multiple anchors. Visit www.fallpd.com to learn more today.

SnoBlox-SnoJax Produces the Metal Roofing Snow Guards Needed to Stop Sliding Snow and Ice

Back in the 1970s, metal roofing first made its debut as an option for commercial and residential homes. The first winter after the first installation, every new roof dumped a load of ice and snow on unsuspecting pedestrians. There was an immediate need for snow guards. SnoBlox-SnoJax went into business manufacturing snow guards for metal roofing and continues to serve satisfied customers across the country to this day.

Today, SnoBlox-SnoJax produces its original clear polycarbonate snow guards. The simple design blends in with the colorful metal roof while slowing the slide of ice and snow. Each guard is fastened to the metal roof using screws or adhesive and can hold back up to four tons of ice and snow. They are shaped like a bookend with a six-inch vertical plate able to catch falling and sliding snow. Once the snow is halted, it has a chance to melt instead of falling in a potentially dangerous heap. The snow guards are installed by a metal roofing company, a different contractor, or the homeowner when following all recommended guidelines. They are an affordable solution to an annual problem, costing under five dollars for each piece.

If ice sheets are more of a problem in a particular area, SnoBlox-SnoJax also offers their Snowbreakers product. The triangular unit works to break up sheets of ice and snow with their angular design. Instead of sharp and even deadly amounts of ice racing down the roof, the Snowbreakers crack and shatter the sheets. A pedestrian may only experience a quick shower of ice and snow. When used in combination with the Snoblox snow guards, the property owner sees a significant reduction in dangerous sheets landing in walkways, parking lots, and on people.

Some property owners demanded yet another option to the Snoblox and Snowbreakers systems which attach to the flat areas between the ribs of a metal roof. In 2016, the company bought Action Manufacturing LLC and their line of Colorbar and Snobar products. A Snobar comes in six-foot-wide sections and can clamp onto standing seam metal roofs. They offer a faster installation compared to the Snoblox system and can be ordered in a matching powder coat color for a near-invisible appearance. These units can hold back over a foot of snow while allowing melting ice and snow to continue to slowly and safely drip off the roof. Now customers, clients, and homeowners can walk out from under their metal roof without fearing the next mini avalanche.

Interested commercial and residential contractors and property owners can order the complete range of SnoBlox-SnoJax products directly from their website at snoblox-snojax.com or through a local authorized distributor and reseller. Customers can also contact them through their Facebook and Instagram pages.

SnoBlox-SnoJax remains committed to producing quality systems that work with and support current metal roofing technologies and installation procedures. Their line of products has changed in manufacture and material since its inception, improving durability and function without becoming exorbitantly expensive. The company was first formed by Jack McMullen and is still run by his son, the current CEO and President, Brion P. McMullen.

SnoBlox-SnoJax has been producing quality aftermarket snow guards for metal roofing since 1976. Their products are still Made in America, come with a lifetime no-fine-print warranty, and continue to evolve with the changing market and materials in the metal roofing industry. Their products are available wholesale to certified roofing installers and individual homeowners and contractors.
