Key Features

Designed for progression on a horizontal lifeline (rope or cable) or on an elevated platform, without passing intermediate anchors.

VARIO adjustment system allows the lanyard length to be adjusted from 100 to 150 cm in order to reduce the potential fall height.

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 130kg.
  • Progressive tearing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users.

Minimal bulk: compact energy absorber facilitates handling.

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: with a carabiner held in correct position by the STRING positioning accessory (included with the lanyard).
  • Semi-permanent connection: with a RING OPEN gated ring, whose circular shape ensures optimal positioning.
  • Two connector options for the end of the lanyard: a locking carabiner, or MGO OPEN connector with large gate opening.
