General Eyebolt Information

The positioning of any eyebolt is extremely important. 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.

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.

All our installers are independently trained and certified in the installation, inspection and testing of eyebolts.
