The Standing Seam Roof Anchor (SSRA) system was released in March 2015 as the industry’s first and only universal fit, component mounting system for standing seam roofs. The product release was followed with the 2nd Place “Best New Product” honors at the 2016 International Roofing Expo and the Metal Roofing Magazine’s 2016 “Metal Of Honor”. All products are 3rd party tested and comply with all OSHA/ANSI standards for fall protection.
Now the company has introduced the SSRA2 Roof Jack that allows the use of walkboards on standing seam roof systems. They are compatible with all SSRA anchors. The Roof Jacks comes complete with all stainless steel wingnuts, an adjustable roof jack, and adjustable height seam stabilizer legs for different seam heights. Roof Jacks are sold in pairs and weigh just 9.5 lbs each, only 13.5 lbs once mounted on the anchor body.
Each Roof Jack requires one Standing Seam Roof Anchor for mounting and simply replaces the standard top-mounted D-ring. These adapters may be purchased with or without SSRA anchors. While there are other systems that allow for walkboard attachment to standing seam roofs, the SSRA system is superior in several ways:
- The industry’s most universal fit anchor point, fits over 500 compatible seams
- Industry’s lightest walkboard bracket at only 13.5 lbs per bracket
- Industry’s only American-made anchor point with lifetime replacement warranty
- Adjustable height seam stabilizer legs for seams up to 3” tall.
- Industry’s only OSHA/ANSI 3rd party tested, universal fit component system for the roofing and solar industry.
According to Howie Scarboro, CEO at Fall Protection Distributors, LLC, “The SSRA2 Roof Jacks allow our customers the ability to mount walkboards to standing seam roofs without penetrating the panels. We have virtually eliminated the need for contractors to buy several different products from different manufacturers to get the job done. We can now simply expand their capabilities with various SSRA adapter plates designed to be lightweight, universal fit, and simple to use. We can even create custom adapter plates for mounting just about anything to a standing seam roof system.”
Scarboro added: “Our network of distributors have done an amazing job at getting the Standing Seam Roof Anchor system in the hands of the customers that need it. Domestic and International distributors and OEM fall protection manufacturers are encouraged to inquire.”
