The Malta Dynamics Concrete Anchor Strap is made up of a strong polyester web inner core which is further protected by a heavy-duty polyester web sheath. The premium sheath protects the inner core from abrasion and wear and extends its overall life. The Malta Dynamics Concrete Anchor strap can be used as a permanent anchor during building construction or as a temporary anchor in applications such as wood framework, rebar work, or pipe racking. As always, be sure the selected attachment point can withstand anticipated fall loads and meet or exceed OSHA required anchorage strength requirements. When attached to a suitable structure, the Malta Dynamics Concrete Anchor Strap provides workers with a safe, compliant anchor point.
Instructions for Installation:
- Select a safe location for the Concrete Anchor Strap. The location must meet the OSHA-required minimum anchor strength requirement. In cases of doubt please contact a qualified or competent person for more information.
- Once a section of wall of concrete column has been poured and cured, place Concrete Anchor Strap User Instruction Manual MaltaDynamics.com | 800-494-1840 12 Manual Revision Code: MD-CASUIM 11-12-18 the looped end of the anchor onto a vertical piece of steel rebar.
- After the anchor(s) are in place, continue to pour concrete, allowing it to cure fully.
- After removing forms, anchors will remain on the face of the column or in between the seams of shear walls.
- For Reinforced Concrete Floor Slabs: A three-foot length of rebar may pass through the loop end of the anchor strap and wire tied to remain tightly in place to the underside of the upper mat of rebar. This provides 3.5” of clearance. Concrete can then be poured, and the anchor strap will become cast into place for use after curing is finished.
- Free fall distance must not exceed six feet at any time.
- Locate the attachment point to the anchor at or above the connection point of the fall arrest equipment to the harness.
