Rope access and confined space
Installed on a safety rope, mobile fall arresters follow the user automatically as they move, whether on an inclined or vertical surface. In the event of a shock load or sudden acceleration, they lock onto the rope and stop the fall. For years, the ASAP and ASAP LOCK models have set the standard for those who work at height. Learn about how to use them!
The Best Way to Maximize Safety When Progressing at Height
Installed on a safety rope, the ASAP and ASAP LOCK mobile fall arresters connect to the harness fall-arrest attachment point. They follow the user in his or her movements and in the event of a shock load or sudden acceleration, they lock and stop the fall. They work equally well on vertical or angled ropes, to adapt to a variety of different worksite situations. The ASAP and ASAP LOCK mobile fall arresters follow the worker in all their movements, without the need for any manual operation, so they can focus completely on the task. The fall arresters can be quickly and easily installed anywhere on the rope by simply retracting the locking wheel. To meet different user needs, the mobile fall arresters are compatible with all of the energy absorbers in the line: ASAP'SORBER (20 and 40 cm) and ASAP'SORBER AXESS. The ASAP LOCK has a locking function that allows users to reduce the potential fall distance. Additionally, it is drop-resistant when passing intermediate anchors.
