Key Features

Designed for progression on a vertical structure and when passing intermediate anchors.

TIE-BACK intermediate tie-back rings on the lanyard allow connection to very large structures. In a rescue situation, these rings are easily accessible for the rescuer, even when the person is suspended on the lanyard after a fall.

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.
  • Elasticized arms to avoid hindering progression.
  • 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: using either a karabiner held in correct position by the STRING positioning accessory (included with the lanyard), or a MICRO SWIVEL to avoid tangling.

  • Semi-permanent connection: using either a RING OPEN gated ring whose circular shape ensures optimal positioning, or a SWIVEL OPEN to avoid tangling.
  • Available with or without connectors (two large-opening MGO connectors for connecting to metal structures and a Bm'D karabiner with CAPTIV positioning bar, for connecting to harness).
