LEARN MORE:

The GRILLON, used in double mode, has less absorption capacity than when used in single mode: with two ropes the stiffness is doubled and the absorption due to rope slippage in the device is halved. The 0.5 m fall, allowed for users weighing less than 100 kg, would produce an impact force too high for 120 to 140 kg users (with their equipment): 9 kN. In limiting the potential fall height to 0.3 m, a 140 kg user is exposed to an acceptable maximum impact force of 8 kN. (See the chapter on the strength of the human body.)
