New ABSORBICA line: fall arrest lanyards

These lanyards are used when there is a fall hazard and are connected to the sternal or dorsal attachment point on the harness. The integrated absorber provides energy absorption in a fall and thus limits the impact force on the user.

Fall arrest lanyards

Progressive energy absorption adapted to the user’s weight

Progressive energy absorption adapted to the user’s weight

In the event of a fall, the tearing of the energy absorber webbing limits the impact force on the user. The lanyards are designed for users who weigh between 50 and 130 kg. The progressive tearing of the webbing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users.

Compact, abrasion-resistant energy absorber

Compact, abrasion-resistant energy absorber

The energy absorber is very compact, to avoid hindering the user’s movements, or interfering with handling. A durable fabric pouch helps protect the energy absorber from abrasion and potential contaminants.
