Through recent substrate testing, it has been determined that Safewaze SRL Swivel Roof Anchors can also be installed on flat concrete surfaces and utilized as described in the product manual. The installation and use of the SRL Swivel Roof Anchor on concrete is permissible provided the user follows the Safewaze product manual and the following guidelines:

1. A Competent Person has determined the concrete structural member is capable of withstanding anticipated fall loads and meets, or exceeds, OSHA required anchorage strength regulations.

2. The concrete must be uncracked, 3000 psi or higher, and a minimum of 6’’ thick.

3. The anchor is installed at least 8’’ away from any edge.

4. Use (8) 1/4’’ x 13/4’’ hex head Tapcons fasteners for installation (can have a maximum screw length up to 3’’).
