Capital Safety approached Exilco with an unusual problem.
Fall arrest anchor points are typically installed on roof-tops, often prior to the roof being sealed. It is essential that the label on the anchor point survives the roofing process when it can be exposed to the direct flame used to melt bitumen. We were asked to assist in developing a ‘heat-shield’ to protect the label while the roofers worked. It need to survive direct flame, protect the label and be removable once the roofers had finished. We were able to source suitable materials and adhesives and supply prototypes for test within a week of being given the task. The first batch of ‘heat-shields’ was delivered within 3 weeks.
