Clearance values with ABSORBICA-I and Y depending on your situation
Here are specific guidelines to avoid hitting an obstacle in a fall.
- Carefully read the Instructions for Use used in this technical advice before consulting the advice itself. You must have already read and understood the information in the Instructions for Use to be able to understand this supplementary information.
- Mastering these techniques requires specific training. Work with a professional to confirm your ability to perform these techniques safely and independently before attempting them unsupervised.
- We provide examples of techniques related to your activity. There may be others that we do not describe here.
Clearance: the clearance, as presented in the Instructions for Use for the ABSORBICA, is the amount of clear space required below the user’s feet to avoid hitting an obstacle in a fall. This value is useful for progression with multiple anchors (e.g. towers, theatrical structures...).
Minimum anchor height: depending on the clearance, there is a minimum anchor height required to prevent the user from hitting an obstacle in a fall. This value is useful for working on lifelines or fixed-height anchors, and for anchor installers.
Fall: the fall distance depends on the lanyard length and on the user’s position relative to the anchor.
