A retractable type fall arrester is a fall arrester with a self locking device and an integrated shock absorber.It is a part of the personal protective equipment against falls from height and can be used at all work places where there is a risk of falling.
Retractable type fall arresters are especially advantageous, since a user has freedom of movement while working owing to a permanently active automatic locking device. The automatic initiation of the retractable type fall arrester is activated on an increase in the pulling velocity (greater than 1 m/s). A built-in spring maintains the defined pre-tension in the coupling element (steel rope or webbing) between the user and the device permanently, so that the fall arrester is immediately activated in the event of a fall.
Retractable type fall arresters with steel ropes are especially suitable for severe ambient conditions. Stainless steel ropes on request. Steel rope length - weight: 5 m - 5 kg / 10 m - 10.2 kg / 16 m - 11 kg / 22 m - 17.8 kg / 30 m - 18.4 kg
Retractable type fall arresters with webbing are slightly lighter and suitable for surroundings that are not very dirty. Webbing length - weight: 5 m - 4.6 kg / 12 m - 7.3 kg
