McNetiq Fall Protection

Fall Arrest & Fall Restraint - Working safely with magnetic anchors

Page last modified
Tuesday, March 30, 2021 - 15:51

McNetiq developed its patented technology Controlock® that allows a safe securing of anchors on steel by using magnets. This technology is based on the ability to determine with certainty the effective load force of a magnetic connection on a steel surface. This is an absolute condition for a safe fixture since steel thickness, coatings, and air gaps are influencing the actual magnetic force. Controlock® technology is unique in enabling permanent or temporary magnetic connections. Using McNetiq's magnetic anchors with Controlock® can prevent welding or other -possibly permanently damaging- alternatives.
