This fall arrester benefits from a resilient casing made from polymer, in combination with a galvanised wire rope that can survive exposure to moisture without corroding.
The entire assembly tips the scales at just over 7.2 kilos and has a breaking strength rating of over 12kN, giving you peace of mind if you are concerned about cutting injuries associated with working at height.
This height safety equipment product is rounded out with a pair of connectors, the first being the steel snap hook that will link with the users’ harness. The second is a karabiner that can be locked via a screwing mechanism for further safety enhancements.
There are lots of hazards associated with working at height and in most cases the actual height involved is irrelevant, because even a fall from a relatively low platform can have serious consequences.
A retractable wire rope fall arrest block like this offers 20 metres of length for improved manoeuvrability, while also having built in mechanisms to reduce the impact of a fall and keep the user out of harm’s way.
