The Possibilities Are Endless
Pipes, wires, communications equipment, plumbing, and even solar are being installed on your commercial roof daily. Unfortunately, they are typically done in a manner that compromise the integrity and performance of the roof's primary purpose - to keep water out while protecting the assets within the building.
This is why Anchor Products developed the most advanced solution on the market. A solution designed by roofing experts for roofing experts. A Universal Anchor. The U-Anchor.
The U-Anchor seamlessly integrates with any commercial roofing material, made by any manufacturer, and installs in just a few minutes. With the U-Anchor, additional structural stress on your facility is prevented and roof warranties remain intact. Anchor Products is the smarter, stronger, and easier solution for mounting all your rooftop equipment.
Massive equipment may appear to be able to hold itself down, but nature is a powerful opponent. A mere 50 to 60 mph gust is not an uncommon occurrence, yet it is powerful enough to cause billowing of the roof membrane and actually lift hundreds of pounds without trouble. This creates a “live load” which can then crash down and damage the roof or structure. A U-Anchors can bear thousands of pounds when a load is place on it, so holding these components in place is a breeze.

Pipe & Wire Management
A variety of pipes and cables can be found on a roof connecting several systems. Roofing manufacturers require that these components be elevated off of the roof to protect the waterproofing membrane from rubbing and allow free flowing drainage. So while a pipe stand holds it up, what holds it down and keeps it in place? Anchor Products has the answer.
- Pipe Anchoring
- Gas Lines
- Condensation Lines
Rooftop solar arrays are very popular with building owners and energy procurement companies. The open space is ideal as a roof reduces the ground space requirements and protects from theft. However, the angles of the solar panels create dozens of small wind sails, so they must be anchored in place. Ballast blocks create unneeded stress on the build and introduce foreign debris that can damage - voiding your roof warranty. U-Anchors securely hold these components in place and maintaining the warranty.

- Electrical Disconnects
Bracing & Support Systems
Large pipes and chimney stacks require more support due to their mass. A significant amount of effort goes into calculating how to spread out the weight of the system so it doesn't overload one spot of the roof deck or structure. Clevis hangers and H-frames with a proper base address this problem well, but it is important to ensure that a wind or seismic event does not cause them to move. Utilizing a U-Anchor and cabling can be the perfect answer to stop the problem before it happens.

Safety & Protection
The roof protects your assets from the elements, but it is used for so much more. It houses components that address security needs with lighting or cameras. It is home to extensive lightning protection systems. It can retain snow and ice from falling on unsuspecting pedestrians. And it can also be a security blanket for workers who need to tie-off to a secure point. U-Anchors can do it all.
