Fall protection equipment specialist Capital Safety has introduced a new range of self retracting lifelines (SRLs) designed to maximise worksite versatility, especially in harsh environments.

The DBI-SALA Sealed-Blok range of self retracting lifelines includes FAST-Line field replaceable lifelines on most models; an integral carry handle that doubles as a secondary fall arrest rated anchorage point; an RSQ dual-mode rescue operation model; and retrieval winch models.

FAST-Line field replaceable lifelines allow end-users to replace the lifeline in the field instead of having to send it to an authorised service centre, reducing equipment downtime and lowering the cost of ownership. The SRL will not operate if the cable is installed incorrectly, offering users simple verification of proper assembly and ensuring safety during use.

Available in retrieval winch models for raising and lowering personnel or materials, Sealed-Blok self retracting lifelines can be quickly converted to and from retrieval mode for fast and efficient operation. Key features also include a primary brake on the input crank handle to prevent movement of the load upon release of the handle, and an optional bracket simplifying attachment of the SRL to tripods and davits.

The Sealed-Blok RSQ model allows the user to choose between automatic rescue and fall arrest modes prior to use, ensuring worksite versatility and optimisation for each fall hazard. In the event of a fall while the device is in automatic rescue mode, the SRL will arrest the fall and then automatically lower the worker safely to the ground or the next level. In fall arrest mode, the SRL will arrest the fall and allow for an assisted rescue to take place.

According to Rick Millar, Technical Manager for Capital Safety Australia & New Zealand, the sealed self-retracting lifeline has been field-proven over the years, operating safely at some of the world’s most challenging worksites. The next-generation Sealed-Blok improves upon the original design, adding features that increase versatility and lower cost of ownership.

DBI-SALA’s i-Safe intelligent safety system utilising RFID technology is built into each Sealed-Blok to track inspections, control inventory and manage information.

The world’s leading designer and manufacturer of height safety, confined space and industrial rescue equipment with 20 operating sites worldwide, Capital Safety is home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands.
