Permanent or temporary solution for roof safety
Miller Fall Protection introduces the new Miller Fusion Roof Anchor Post (RAP) that provides a versatile single-point anchorage for workers conducting maintenance on industrial-style roof systems. The innovative base plate is engineered for temporary or permanent installation to the roof surface; attachment is quick and easy, reducing installation time by more than 50 percent. In the event of a fall, the top of the Miller RAP reorients in a direct line with the force and activates the patent-pending energy absorber. For more information, visit www.millerfallprotection.com.
