Fall protection equipment specialist Capital Safety introduces the new DBI-SALA Nano-Lok self retracting lifelines (SRL) designed to directly attach to most fall protection harnesses to replace lanyards.
An addition to Capital Safety’s extensive line of industry-leading self retracting lifelines, the SRLs can be used in place of lanyards and directly attached to any harness to reduce fall clearances. The compact and lightweight self retracting lifelines are barely noticeable by users while providing the ultimate work site flexibility.
Rick Millar, Technical Manager for Capital Safety Australia & New Zealand explains that the DBI-SALA Nano-Lok self retracting lifelines were developed following the release of their Sealed-Blok SRLs when they realised a need for an extremely lightweight and compact device that can be directly attached to a harness and used in place of lanyards.
Multiple anchorage options in the new Nano-Lok SRLs include a quick-connect anchorage connector that allows the SRL to be attached directly to the back of most harnesses without the requirement of a separate karabiner. Instead of being attached to the D-ring, the SRL attaches around the web, allowing the D-ring to be used for other equipment or rescue. The cab-mount anchorage connector allows the SRL to be attached directly to the cab of an order picker, while the swivelling loop provides a full range of motion.
DBI-SALA Nano-Lok self retracting lifelines can also be arranged as a twin-leg SRL providing 100% tie-off capabilities. The twin-leg configuration provides continuous fall protection and added mobility when moving from one location to another, and can also be used to replace twin-leg shock absorbing lanyards. The quick-connect anchorage connector allows both SRLs to be attached directly to the back of most harnesses.
Key features of DBI-SALA Nano-Lok self retracting lifelines:
- Lightweight design provides superior comfort and flexibility while still protecting workers up to 140kg
- SRL technology retains tension on the lifeline at all times, keeping it out of the worker’s way reducing dragging, snagging and trip falls
- Automatic activating arrestor locks quickly to stop falls within centimetres, reducing free fall distances and providing more protection at lower heights
- Unique 1.8-metre web lifeline for added strength
- Multiple anchorage options
