Safety Hooks are for fixing loads such as roofer's ladders in place while work is being carried out on the roof. They are available in three versions to suit slates, plain and profiled concrete and clay tiles. Safety equipment can also be hung on the eyelet.

The Safety Hooks should be fixed in the centre of the rafter using the nails supplied. Minimum rafter cross section should be 50x80mm. The nails must be at least 25mm away from the rafter edge.
If the safety hooks are not fixed directly to the rafters, but fixed through counterbattens or boarding, care must be taken to avoid the timber splitting on the account of its insufficient thickness.
We recommend that when fixing the safety hooks into counterbattens or boarding, holes should be pre-drilled prior to nailing. To conform to Euro Code 5-1-1, fixings must be driven in to a minimum depth of 36mm into the load-bearing roof construction (rafters).
After any dynamic loading of a safety hook (occurrence of a safety critical event) the hook must be replaced, along with all the relevant fittings.
Klober’s installation instructions should be followed closely when fitting this product.
