Roof Anchor Inspection
Roof safety anchors are installed on many industrial, commercial and institutional roofs, typically to assist with roof maintenance and window washing requirements. Typically, roof anchor systems are designed and installed at the time of building construction. Often times, original drawings and certifications are lost and the inspection process is limited to a quick visual inspection of each anchor as a individual, instead of each anchor as part of a specifically designed system.
Induspec has performed hundreds of anchor inspections on dozens of buildings, including the design and installation of many roof anchors. Each time, Induspec strives to understand the original design parameters to ensure that these match current standards and best practices.
Induspec has developed proprietary software to document and track roof safety anchors over the long term. In addition, Induspec only uses it’s experienced in-house Professional Engineers to site inspect roof anchor systems.
Induspec owns all site inspection equipment for both, visual and physical load testing. In addition, Induspec has the expertise to evaluate anchor systems and systems design to ensure that the original design intent is not only sound, but is met with the existing roof mounted hardware.
