Keywords: Fall Protection, Fall Arrest

Self-retracting lifelines are widely used in construction to provide fall protection, especially where workers must move about to handle or install materials. The devices let the user move the full length of the line but stop and lock at any sudden pull. This action is designed for fall arrest situations.

Robust design, a variety of lifeline lengths and corrosion resistant alloy housing means your SRL investment will go a long way. Units can be equipped with stainless steel cables, or non-conductive Dyneema® rope as standard (or with galvanized cables on request. Note: stainless steel cable is ideal for the food industry and environments involving chemicals.

All are equipped with a load indicator that triggers to show the unit has been subjected to a severe force. Our range is of a modular design. The materials used are characterized by a high corrosion resistance, a high strength and a relatively low weight. The blocks are constructed in a way that they can be disassembled and hence maintained. These features all ensure a wide usability and a long lifetime.
