Overhead anchorage connectors have always been a driving need for applications that do not have access to an overhead structure for securing a safe anchorage point. In many instances, such as truck loading / unloading / maintenance, a worker does not have the benefit of an overhead structure to secure an anchorage connector. The Miller SkyORB Overhead Rotational Boom Anchor provides a safe overhead anchorage that is designed specifically for use around vehicles, utilizing the vehicle weight to secure the anchor for proper fall arrest, eliminating the need for heavy and bulky counter weights. The SkyORB Anchor is a pre-engineered system that replaces the need for very expensive, custom engineered, fixed overhead anchor systems.
