Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA, PROTECTA and UNILINE brands of fall protection equipment has announced the launch of the new DBI-SALA Nano-Lok™ Self Retracting Lifelines (SRL).
These new SRLs, an addition to Capital Safety's extensive line of industry-leading self retracting lifelines, can be used in place of lanyards and can be directly attached to any harness, reducing fall clearances.
Compact and lightweight, these SRLs are virtually unnoticeable to the user when worn and provide the ultimate work site flexibility.
"Capital Safety continues to enhance and adapt products for use in applications across all industries," Rick Millar, technical manager for Capital Safety Australia & New Zealand said.
"After releasing our range of Sealed-Blok™ SRLs we saw a need in the field for an extremely lightweight and compact device that can be directly attached to a harness and used in place of lanyards. It is a unique product that will provide solutions across industries."
The Nano-Lok SRLs are lighter and smaller than competing products, making them the most compact and lightweight self retracting lifelines on the market.
The lightweight design provides the ultimate comfort and productivity, while still being able to protect workers up to 140kgs. The SRL technology retains tension on the lifeline at all times, keeping it out of the worker's way reducing dragging, snagging and trip falls. The automatic activating arrestor locks quickly to stop falls within centimetres, reducing free fall distances and providing more protection at lower heights. It also features a unique 1.8 metre web lifeline for added strength.
The new Nano-Lok SRLs have multiple anchorage options. The quick-connect anchorage connector allows the SRL to be attached directly to the back of most harnesses without the requirement of a separate karabiner. Instead of being attached to the D-ring, the SRL attaches around the web, allowing the D-ring to be used for other equipment or rescue. The cab-mount anchorage connector allows the SRL to be attached directly to the cab of an order picker, while the swiveling loop provides a full range of motion.
The SRLs can also be arranged as a twin-leg SRL providing 100 per cent tie-off capabilities. The twin-leg configuration provides continuous fall protection and added mobility when moving from one location to another. This configuration can be used to replace twin-leg shock absorbing lanyards. The quick-connect anchorage connector allows both SRLs to be attached directly to the back of most harnesses.
