Petzl Absorbica Compact Energy Absorber

NOT to be used with a Petzl ASAP. This Absorber is designed to be used in a lanyard combination only.

The Petzl Absorbica Compact is a tear-webbing energy absorber. The webbing is contained and protected by a zippered pouch. One end is equipped with a rubber keeper (String) to hold the connector in position and protect the webbing from abrasion.

Detailed description:

  • Designed for use in combination with a Jane lanyard to make a fall arrest lanyard with a maximum length of two meters
  • Absorbs energy in case of a fall:
    - tearing of the energy absorber webbing limits the impact force on the user
    - works with users who weigh between 50 and 130 kg
    - progressive tearing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users
  • Minimal bulk: compact to facilitate handling
  • Abrasion resistance:
    - durable zippered fabric pouch protects the energy absorber from abrasion or contaminants while allowing for regular inspection of the absorber
    - pouch reduces the risk of cuts and potential severing over edges
  • Two options for installation on the harness, depending on use:
    - frequent connection/disconnection: with a carabiner held in correct position by the STRING (included with the absorber) or with a MICRO SWIVEL to avoid tangling
    - semi-permanent connection: with a RING OPEN whose circular shape ensures optimal positioning, or with a SWIVEL OPEN to avoid tangling


  • Maximum authorized length (with connectors) 200 cm
  • Maximum length of torn lanyard after fall 320 cm
  • Maximum clearance (for fall factor 2) 620 cm
  • Weight 140 g
  • Guarantee 3 years
