In most respects this fall arrest block is similar to its non-ATEX counterparts, since it consists of a polymer casing that contains 10 metres of wire rope which can be retracted and extended as required.
In fall arrest scenarios, the integrated automatic brake will be applied to the rope, cutting the impact of the fall to below 6kN and thus protecting the user from injury.
Capable of coping with users weighing up to 140kg, this fall arrester will perform ably in a number of commercial settings, specifically being suited to those where the risk of the atmosphere igniting is too great for the use of unspecialised alternatives.
It is not enough to simply invest in this ATEX retractable fall arrester and hope for the best; you will also need other ATEX-approved height safety equipment to avert disaster and keep in line with regulations.
