Retractable Type Fall Arresters & Weight Safeguarding Devices
Retractable Fall Arresters
A retractable type fall arrester, such as a Revac, is a fall arrester with self locking device and integrated shock absorber to be used:
|-||for work at critical heights between 2 and 6 m|
|-||in confined spaces.|
The special advantage of a retractable type fall arrester is its suitability for relatively low working heights, since a fall is arrested at an extremely short distance.
A tripod is used for securing persons and transporting material.
The MiniLite Fall Limiter is a compact alternative to conventional lanyards.
Weight Safeguarding Devices
or Load Arrest Blocks arrest the fall of an object in the event of a load carrying device breaking (crane rope, chain).
Crane Descenders are automatic Abseil Rescue Devices or constant speed automatic descenders. Rather than arresting a fall, this device lowers the person to the ground at a constant speed (about 1m/second) Ideal for evacuations.
