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
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
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.
Different connectors depending on the type of structure
MGO or MGO OPEN large-opening connectors
MGO and MGO OPEN connectors allow for connection to metal structures or to large-diameter cables and bars. Lanyards without connectors can be equipped with MGO OPEN 60 or 110 connectors that can be re-used if the lanyard is damaged.
Lanyards without connectors can be equipped with classic aluminum (OK, Am’D and Bm’D) or steel connectors (OXAN TRIACT-LOCK). They enable connection to lifelines or to single anchor points.
Available in several lengths, with or without a connector
ABSORBICA lanyards are available in two lengths:
- 80 cm of rope
- 150 cm of elasticized webbing, to avoid hindering progression
They are available with or without a connector, according to user needs.
For progression on a lifeline without passing intermediate anchors
ABSORBICA-I single lanyards are designed especially for protection on a horizontal lifeline or on an elevated platform.
For progression on a vertical structure or a lifeline, and when passing intermediate anchors
The ABSORBICA-Y double lanyards allow for continuous protection, by successively detaching and re-attaching the two arms.
