Wire rope lanyard with shock-absorbing device
The wire rope lanyard with shock-absorbing device is composed of a shock absorber to which a 5 D16-in. (16 mm) vinyl covered wire rope lanyard is attached. The shock absorber is covered with a tubular polyester sleeve. It is designed to be used as a connecting device in a personal fall arrest, work positioning or travel restraint system. The wire rope lanyard with shockabsorbing device is recommended where the chemical, abrasive or heat conditions would greatly affect synthetic made lanyards.
When a fall occurs, the sudden stop caused by the fall arrest system submits the human body to a high impact force (the longer the free fall distance,
the higher the force).
The purpose of the shock absorber is to lower the impact force experienced in a fall by dissipating the kinetic energy and controlling deceleration. The shockabsorbing device is made of a specially woven webbing that ellongates through tearing on its weave and stitching. This action limits the impact force to less than 900 lbs. (4 kN).
The dual arm model allows the worker to remain safely connected at all time
(100% tie-off) while climbing or on the move.
