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.
- 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
