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.

Progressive energy absorption adapted to the user's weight

range ABSORBICA focus

In case 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 and abrasion resistant energy absorber

range ABSORBICA focus

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 OPEN large-opening connectors

range ABSORBICA focus

Lanyards without connectors can be equipped with MGO OPEN auto-locking connectors for connection to metal structures or to large-diameter cables and bars. These connectors can be re-used if the lanyard is damaged.

 

MGO large-opening connectors

range ABSORBICA focus

Lanyards equipped with MGO connectors allow for connection to metal structures or to large-diameter cables and bars.

 

Classic connectors

range ABSORBICA focus

The ABSORBICA-I and ABSORBICA-Y lanyards can also be equipped with classic aluminum OK and Am'D connectors, or captive steel versions. They enable connection to lifelines or to single anchor points.

Work positioning lanyards

Positioning lanyards allow the user to position himself precisely at the work station, with feet supported on the structure. They can adapt to different anchoring configurations.

Versatile

Double mode use

Double mode use

The GRILLON lanyard can be used in double mode (on the harness side attachment points) when the user must work with weight on his feet. This type of attachment gives better load distribution on the belt. The user precisely adjusts his position by pressing on the lanyard's pivoting cam.

Single mode use

Single mode use

When the anchor is located above the user, the GRILLON lanyard is connected to the harness ventral attachment point, so that the load is comfortably distributed between the belt and leg loops. The user adjusts his position by operating the handle, while holding the free end of the lanyard.

Easy handling

Sewn terminations with plastic sheaths

Sewn terminations with plastic sheaths

Sewn terminations give an increase in strength (compared to a knotted termination) while reducing bulk. The plastic sheaths help hold the carabiners in position and protect the lanyard ends from abrasion due to repeated rubbing.

Differentiation of lanyard lengths

Differentiation of lanyard lengths

Lanyard length is immediately identified by a color-coded label at the connector end.
