  • Designed for progression on a vertical structure or horizontal lifeline, and when passing intermediate anchors.
  • Absorbs energy in the event of a fall:
    – Tearing of the energy absorber webbing limits the impact force on the user.
    – Works with users who weigh between 50 and 140 kg (1).
    – Progressive tearing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users.
  • Minimal bulk:
    – Compact energy absorber facilitates handling.
    – Flex version with 150 cm of elasticized webbing to avoid hindering progression.
  • Durable fabric pouch with opening system at each end, protects the energy absorber from abrasion or contaminants while allowing for regular inspection of the absorber.
  • Two options for installation on the harness, depending on use:
    – Frequent connection/disconnection: using either a carabiner held in correct position by the string positioning accessory (included with the lanyard), or a micro swivel to avoid tangling.
    – Semi-permanent connection: using either a ring open gated ring whose circular shape allows optimal positioning, or a swivel open to avoid tangling.
  • Comes with two large-opening MGO connectors for connection to metal structures.
  • Available in two lengths: 80 and 150 cm.
