ATS has an excellent safety record and a strict quality program which translates into a quality product delivered to the client. ATS applies the latest technology and engineering methods as well as focusing on the use of roof anchors which provides our clients with practical solutions.

Since every commercial building is different, ATS applies several factors in designing roof anchor systems for either new or existing structures. Our roof anchor installations begin with thorough building investigation and layout for proper placement meeting and/or exceeding applicable codes and standards. ATS’ preparation ensures maximizing the most practical plan of action resulting in roof anchors conveniently located for building maintenance crews to perform their high-risk duties in a safe and accessible manner.

Our goal is to provide structural integrity of our installed, tested or inspected roof anchor systems.
