|This parapet clamp from MIO is designed to be used in situations where manual descent is needed by one suspended worker with manual bosun’s chair or saddle. |
Parapet clamp may be used as a temporary anchor for a Tie Back Line, Safety Lifeline or a
Work Line (Primary Suspension Line)
Primarily used in the window cleaning industry and can also be used anytime a fall protection system is needed and a parapet wall of proper strength is available.
The Tie Back Clamp is easy to attach to the parapet for support.
For use on certified solid material walls.
Parapet clamp must be tied back to a safety line and 5000 lb. anchor point
Rated for single person use only
Thick parapets work best in concrete
Lightweight and adjustable clamping system that fits walls with a thickness of up to 24".
Heavy-duty steel construction.
Weight: 37 lbs.
Not for scaffold or multiple human use. Attachment “B” for lifeline or suspended worker = 350 lbs. (one man) safety lifeline. Right Eye in photo: Outreach for “B” = 7” .
It is not permitted to use the Parapet Clamp for any other purpose than what is identified above. The parapet MUST meet the requirement of ANSI-IWCA-I-14.1-2001 stated below:
Par.9.1.7: When anchorages are used to directly support suspended equipment,
existing roof parapets and guardrails subjected to the direct loading of suspension
lines shall be structurally analyzed by a registered professional engineer, considering
these added loads, and verified as to their capacity
Par.17.1.3 A roof parapet may be used to directly support the suspended platform (as
is the case with parapet clamps or when supporting the fulcrum of an outrigger beam)
and may be used as a tie back anchorage providing;
- the fixture directly attached to the parapet (parapet clamp, eye bolt, etc.) has
been designed by or under the direction of a registered professional engineer
for the specific intended load application with a minimum factor of safety of 4 to
- the load supporting parapet has been structurally verified by a registered
professional engineer as to its capacity to hold the intended load with a factor of
safety of not less than 4 to 1;
- parapets used as a tie-back anchorage shall be located directly behind the
apparatus being tied back;
- Parapet clamps, if used as tie-back anchorages shall be specifically designed
for that load application and so certified by its manufacturer. The parapet
clamp/tie-back anchorage shall be positioned directly behind the apparatus being tied back.
