VARIO adjustment system allows the lanyard length to be adjusted from 100 to 150 cm in order to reduce potential fall height.
The ABSORBICA®-I VARIO single lanyard is designed particularly for protection on a horizontal lifeline or on an elevated platform, without passing intermediate anchors.
Progressive energy absorption
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 140 kg. The progressive tearing of the webbing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users.
Compact, durable energy absorber
The energy absorber is very compact to avoid hindering the user’s movements or interfering with work. A durable fabric pouch helps protect the energy absorber from abrasion and potential contaminants.
