Magnetic anchor for risers and scaffolding
A welded steel connection is strong but as a temporary solution it has much impact on health, cost, environment and material. In the Dutch industry several thousand temporary welding connections are daily made for fitting scaffoldings, hoisting eyes, lashing eyes, lifting tanks etc. Today’s alternative is the McNetiq Controlock, the first magnet that can be tested on load bearing and sliding capacity.
It is patented, fire proof, and it works without battery, can be scaled endlessly. The first developed and certified application is the scaffolding anchor. E.g. Dow Chemical, Shell, ExxonMobil saved a lot of money with it.
Recently McNetiq and Shell Pernis developed a pipe support to mount risers on e.g. storage tanks. Traditionally, risers are mounted with chemical anchors and that proces has some disadvantages in comparison with magnets. The pilot was successful, saving both time and money.
Future applications are: fall protection, temporary handrail, pipe supports, lashing eye, hoisting eyes.
