Design low-profile anchors and carefully install these anchors underneath a glass guardrail to avoid placing anchors in the terraced areas of the roof. Because the anchors are located so close to the parapet, they had to be installed in pairs to provide independent suspension and fall arrest anchors. An independent horizontal cable system was also required for fall arrest to access anchors close to the edge of the building (see Horizontal Fall Restraint Cable System). The entire suspended maintenance system is OSHA and ANSI/IWCA I-14.1 code-compliant.
