The use of eyebolts is an extremely popular method of fall protection whilst working at height. They can be sited in brick, masonry, concrete, steel, wood or through a cavity wall. They can be utilised as restraint, work positioning or fall arrest. However they must only be used for the purpose they were installed. All CAS Ltd eyebolts have attached a warning disc informing the end user of what they are only to be used for. These will be either Restraint, Work positioning or Fall arrest
All our installers are independently trained and certified in the installation, inspection and testing of eyebolts.
The positioning of any eyebolt is extremely important. As a company who also carry out work at height we have a very good understanding of the positioning of the eyebolts to ensure the safest / most practical placement. It is sometimes necessary to install more than one eyebolt at a site. This enables movement if the work area is large. The use of twin lanyards is sometimes required to ensure constant connection.
When installed a knurled threaded sleeve is secured into the structure with a two-part resin system. Once cured an eyebolt is screwed into the insert to the required torque setting. The anchor is then tested by attempting to pull it back out of the structure in the direction it went in.
All the eyebolts we use conform to BS EN 795 and are installed and tested in accordance with BS 7883:2005 The Code of Practice for the design, selection, installation, use and maintenance of anchor devices conforming to BS EN 795.
Recertification:~ BS 7883:2005 States that at least once every 12 months the anchor device should be examined in accordance with the manufacturers instructions, by a competent person authorised by the manufacturer. If used for work positioning or rope access they should be inspected every six months.
Our eyebolts are manufactured from either high tensile carbon steel with galvanised or plastic-coated finish or bright polished 316 grade stainless steel.
