Oblique or vertical anchors and fall distance with ABSORBICA lanyards.
Choosing appropriate, well-positioned anchors contributes to user safety: certain anchors can increase the potential fall distance.
- Read the technical notice before viewing the following techniques.
- It is important to fully understand the information provided in the technical notice before using this complementary information
- Mastering these techniques requires training.
- Consult a professional before attempting to perform these techniques on your own.
Energy absorbers are calibrated for a maximum fall distance of "twice the lanyard length" or 4 m maximum.
During a fall, if the connector can move along the anchor or if the anchor itself can move, the fall distance can exceed the allowed maximum.
Even if your ABSORBICA lanyard can absorb the energy of a 4 meter fall with an "acceptable" impact force of less than 6 kN, such a fall is not harmless. At all times, it is recommended to reduce the fall distance as much as possible.
