Our Story.

Industry Leading Fall Protection Manufactured in the heart of the United States.

While working as a project manager at his family’s business, J&L Sheet Metal, Brent Smith witnessed a worker fall off the edge of a roof causing permanent damage and leaving him unable to work. This really changed Brent and his approach to safety on the jobsite. Moving forward, he decided that it would be best to tie off workers 100% of the time. This came with many obstacles including roofs with no tie-off anchors and additional safety hazards caused by lifelines. Brent and his team began to brainstorm and came up with the idea to create a mobile anchor point that would not only provide a place to tie off but also a way that workers could continue to be efficient. AES Raptor was born as demand for these ingenious units increased.
