Self Retracting Lifelines
Choosing the Correct Self Retracting Lifelines
When choosing a self-retracting lifeline, it is very important to take the conditions of your work environment into consideration. From harsh marine and mining, to oil and gas, to general industry, getting the best use out of your lanyard depends on selecting the right product for the application and the environment.
Self-retracting lifelines retain tension on the lifeline at all times, staying out of the worker’s way while providing safety. This helps shorten the fall distance and minimize trip hazards, and also offers greater mobility and maneuverability, which may help increase productivity. Lengths range from 6 to 175 feet.
- For general purpose applications that are indoors or in less-harsh environments, web material is appropriate
- For extremely harsh environments, cable or Kevlar®/Nomex® fiber web offers extra durability and is suitable for abrasive or high-heat
Single or Twin-Leg Configuration
- Single leg styles are suitable for a single anchor point connection to work within a specific range of movement
- A twin-leg style offers a protective connection as the worker moves from one anchor point to the next for 100% tie-off
