Fall protection with K-Universal anchors - tested according to the ETB guideline


We are guided by the guidelines for the installation of windows an doors. Below is shown how different masonry can be secured against falling. The listed products have been tested in accordance with the ETB guideline for "Components that protect against falling".

When does it have to be secured against falling?

"If components are installed below the parapet height and from a certain  difference in  between the ground (room side) and adjacent top edge of the railing (outside), then there are requirements of barrier safety that are specifed by the Supervisory Building Authority. The critical parapet heights (between 0.8 m and 1.1 m) and the difference in heights (between 0.5 m and 1.0 m) are governed in the Regional Building Codes of the states (Figure 5.18)" (Leitfaden zur Planung und Ausführung der Montage von Fenstern und Haustüren, RAL-Gütegemeinschaft Fenster und Haustüren e.V., März 2014)
