EN354 & EN355 compliant fall arrest lanyard with shock absorbing pack

Constructed from kernmantle fibre, it is a fixed-length fall arrest rope lanyard available in lengths between 1m and 2m with single or twin leg options to offer 100% tie off when moving around structures. It also comes in different connectors.

Note – Lanyard length is measured between the bearing points of the hooks. Exchanging a karabiner for a scaffold hook could lengthen a lanyard beyond the maximum allowable length under the relevant EN standard.

What does a fall arrest system consist of?
It consists of a full-body harness, anchorage, and connecting device. The means of connection may include a lanyard, deceleration device, lifeline, or a suitable combination of these. In the unfortunate event of a fall, the lanyard will catch the fall and absorb many of the forces created.

Which harness attachment points can be used with a Fall Arrest Lanyard?
While the 2 tails of a double fall arrest lanyard are connected to anchorage points, the energy absorber is attached to a fall arrest point, marked with an "A". A full-body fall arrest harness normally includes a rear D-ring for fall arrest; some models also include a front fall arrest attachment point. Manufacturers should clearly state all applicable points for fall arrest.

How does a shock-absorbing lanyard work?
The unique feature of this lanyard is its built-in shock pack. When a significant, sustained dynamic force is applied to the lanyard such as in a fall, the pack expands to absorb the kinetic energy that is created by a body in freefall. 

Without a shock absorber built into the fall arrest system, the forces created in freefall will severely injure the worker and more than likely result in a fatality.
