Non-Penetrating Design

At the heart of the Roof Jack Pro Pack lies the Standing Seam Roof Anchor (SSRA1) with its patented non-penetrating design. This design ensures secure work on standing seam roofs without compromising the integrity of the panels. The coarse threaded set screw design allows the anchor to be removed and re-installed an unlimited number of times. The patented one-piece body shape allows this one device to fit about nearly all standing seam profiles with just a few exceptions.

Ultimate Strength Testing

Undergoing rigorous testing at an ISO 17025/ANSI Z359.18 certified facility, the SSRA1 exceeded industry standards. With a maximum testing protocol of 5,000 lbs, it withstood an impressive 14,500 lbs load, showcasing its unmatched ultimate breaking strength. This anchor is proven to be the industry’s strongest and most versatile standing seam anchor point.  Reports for  24 gauge steel panels22 gauge steel panels and ASTM B117 Salt Spray Test are available for review on the website.  

Distinct Advantages

The SSRA1 offers several advantages, including a lightweight design, universal fit, corrosion-resistant materials, and OSHA/ANSI certification. It’s low profile minimizes tripping hazards, providing workers access to both sides of the roof without repositioning. The one-piece body never requires assembly or re-assembly depending on the type of seam it is being attached to. The SSRA1 solves the glaring weakness in older standing seam anchor designs. Older style 2-piece anchors exposed the worker to making a mistake in identifying the type of seam and how to assemble the multiple anchor parts to fit that seam. If not done properly, it could easily result in failure.

The SSRA1 anchors are also 3rd party tested for loads perpendicular to the seam to simulate a worker falling through a skylight or through a roof panel. Most other seam anchors are only tested for falls downslope of the anchor point. This limits workers to a narrow work area in order to be protected. The SSRA1 superior design allows workers to be protected when working at any position around a properly installed SSRA1.

Versatility in Attachment

The Roof Jack Pro Pack goes beyond conventional fall protection solutions with it’s certified component system, allowing the attachment of various devices. This versatility makes it a valuable tool for different fall protection needs. The SSRA1 anchors are the foundation of the component system with expandable adapter plates that extend the capabilities for walkboards and horizontal lifeline deployment.
