The ASAP'SORBER 20 and 40 are designed to absorb the fall of a 100 kg mass from a height of twice their length.

In the fall of a 140 kg user (including equipment), the absorber will be completely elongated (stitching ripped).

Petzl testing shows that the system and user will sustain an acceptable impact force of less than 7 kN. (See the chapter on the strength of the human body.)

The ASAP'SORBER 40 is designed to absorb the energy of a 1.28 m fall of 100 kg, which is 1254 joules (E = mgh = 100 x 9.8 x 1.28).

The same fall for a 140 kg user produces 1758 joules (E = mgh = 140 x 9.8 x 1.28).

The extra energy not dissipated by the absorber increases the impact force on the user and on the system. The tests show that the impact force is less than 7 kN.

The ABSORBICA L57 is designed to absorb the energy of a 4 m fall of a 100 kg user, which is 3920 J. With the ABSORBICA L57 mounted on an ASAP, without a lanyard, the fall potential will be far less significant: maximum 1 m, which is 1372 J.
