Aviator fixed or temporary eye-bolts
versatile eye-bolts for safety at height.
Available in in stainless steel or a galvanised finish, permanent and removable eyebolts are designed to be fixed to a structural substrate such as structural steel or concrete to provide suitable connection points for both fall restraint and fall arrest use. They are secured to concrete and brickwork/ blockwork with resin anchors and to steelwork with stainless steel bolts, washers and vibration proof nuts.
When fixing to metal deck or timber deck it may be necessary to provide a backing plate to ensure compliance. The eye-bolts are designed for one user at any one time and two users in the event of any emergency evacuation requirements. For fall restraint use, which is highly recommended, the eye-bolts need to be positioned at least 2.0m away from any exposed edge. When connected to a 2m lanyard and body harness, the operator will be able to safely access the area without risk of falling.
Different lengths of fixed lanyards can be provided to accommodate different eye-bolt connection points. Careful consideration must be taken when designing the eye-bolt positions to ensure any operator lanyards will not foul with any roof plant or furniture or fixtures. All eye-bolts must be secured at least 280mm from any substrate edge.
Permanent eyebolts are designed to be left fixed in position. This must be considered when fitting them inside buildings open to the general public such as office blocks and hotels.
Removable eyebolts are designed so the eye-bolt key can be inserted in the socket when required and removed when the work is completed. They can be positioned in pedestrian areas such as entrance halls and corridors, because when the key is removed a socket cap is fitted, which is virtually flush with the wall finish.
