SLATOR Red meets OSHA 1926, 1910 and ANSI Z359.1 Requirements for Fall Protection

 SLATOR (Secure Ladder and Tie Off Responsibly)

First Safe Ascent.  First Safe Descent.

(Yorba Linda, CA, June 1, 2016) - RoofersCoffeeShop.com, the place where the industry meets for technology, information and everyday business, is pleased to welcome SLATOR – USA.  Invented by roofers and made in the USA, the SLATOR Red fastens to steep slate or asphalt shingle roofs, firmly clamping ladders into position.  Industry tested for 2 years, the SLATOR tool allows any tradesman working on a roof easier and safer access to perform their work.

Fall protection is one of the most frequently cited OSHA violations, carrying hefty fines. The SLATOR helps to avoid these situations by offering an easier, faster and safer way to make roof repairs on asphalt or slate shingle roofs. The sturdy metal bracket bolts to a roof to serve as a secure ladder clamp and harness anchor point.  “Roofing professionals are constantly in danger of falling, we wanted to change that.  It is our goal to provide the right equipment so every roofer is safe,” said SLATOR inventor and co-owner Ronny Roseveare.

Working as a team of three remodelers/roofers in Lynchburg, Va., they invented the tool while also running their construction business.  The team was committed to safety and wanted the right safety equipment for their difficult access steep roof work.  “We made a commitment to safety and efficiency.  In order to do the job right, we had to figure out a way to be safe.” said Roseveare.  “Between busy days working on houses, we began perfecting our approach to safety.  Soon the Secure Ladder And Tie Off Responsibly (SLATOR) was born.”

The red SLATOR roof bracket allows for quick, easy and safer access to many different locations on a roof.  Conforming with OSHA 1926, 1910 and ANSI Z359.1 when installed and used according to instructions, the fall protection anchor is capable of supporting a 5000-pound load.   Offered with SLATOR-approved fasteners the full system is OSHA compliant.

“We invented the SLATOR to help us work better, safer and faster on steep slate and asphalt shingle roofs,” concluded Roseveare, a 20-year roofer and remodeler. “We are committed to making this product available to all roofing and remodeling contractors at a fair and reasonable price.”

RoofersCoffeeShop.com is proud to welcome SLATOR and share the safety excellence of SLATOR products.  For more information, visit www.slator-usa.com or call 434-515-1435.
