HEIGHT Safety Services has released the Safetylink eyebolt. The unit can bend like a fishing pole, starting from the top and working its way down to the base.
This progressive bending allows it to use up energy as the eyebolt bends, reducing the forces exerted on the person falling and also to the attachment point on the structure. The unit can absorb up to 60% of the energy.
The eyebolt can be quickly attached to virtually any construction type. Custom-designed links are available to connect to steel purlins, timber rafters, masonry or timber walls, sandwich panels and concrete.
All linkages have been tested in conjunction with the eyebolt and meet the relevant Australian and New Zealand Standards. These tests have been performed on all types of standard constructions and can generally be certified without additional strengthening or modification to existing structures.
