DBI-SALA, the leading manufacturer solely dedicated to the fall protection market, has launched their new heavy duty Lanyard range.
The new heavy duty Lanyard range is the first product of its type in Australia that addresses heavy weight issues while working at height.
The range has been specifically designed for people who need to access areas with a risk of fall arrest and have a combined body weight with tools and equipment up to 160kg.
Previously, workers in a high weight category due to the extra weight of tools and equipment, a heavier set person, or the combination of both were either unable to perform their task or carried on regardless - risking personal injury due to the extra force generated on their body in the event of a fall.
DBI-SALA has taken a pro-active approach taking end user requirements into consideration and leading the way with their heavy duty Lanyard range to make fall protection safer and more efficient in these work environments.
“Fall protection is no longer one size fits all”, says Michael Biddle, Managing Director of Capital Safety, Australia and New Zealand.
“Lanyards as do harnesses need to be properly fitted to take into account the users weight, the amount of tools and equipment they need to carry and the work environment, so that an appropriate lanyard can be chosen”.
Selected models of the heavy duty Lanyards are available with DBI-SALA’s new heavy duty connection hardware. The new hooks reduce the risks of accidental disengagement created by sideways pressure placed on them, otherwise known as side gate loadings.
DBI-SALA’s i-Safe intelligent safety system is built into every heavy duty Lanyard to track inspections, control inventory and manage information.
I-Safe utilises RFID equipped fall protection equipment combined with web enabled information management to take fall protection to a new level of performance and safety.
DBI-SALA is a brand of Capital Safety, the leading designer and manufacturer of height safety, confined space and industrial rescue equipment.
