Full description


3M™ DBI-SALA® Glyder 2 Sliding Beam Anchor

The Glyder 2 is designed to act as a mobile anchor point, and is equipped with replaceable wear pads to eliminate metal-on-metal contact, helping reduce friction and aid the smooth movement of the anchor along the beam (it can be dragged along by the user).  With the ability to be fitted either overhead or at the users feet, it features a guarded locking mechanism on the ratcheting adjustment protecting the locking tabs from being disengaged accidentally. The locking tabs are also located on the side rather than top of the beam anchor, this helping reduce the risk of it being forced open by the users lanyard.

The Glyder 2 is very lightweight, weighing just 1.66kg and has a user capacity of 189kg, suitable for even t5he largest technician and tools! Rotating D-ring tie-off point fixed in the centre. 

Capital Safety recommend using their Force2 lanyard when tieing off at your feet as this lanyard can be used for a 3.7m (12ft) free fall.
