Capital Safety, the global leader in fall protection has announced the launch of their new DBI-SALA® Nano-Lok™ range of Self Retracting Lifelines (SRLs) designed for Hot Work Use. The Nano-Lok™ Hot Work range is arc flashed to 8 calories (8 cal/cm2), for hot work use in applications like welding, grinding and torching where sparks and slag can easily compromise standard polyester webbing lifelines.
"Capital Safety continues to enhance and adapt products for use in applications across all industries," said Rick Millar, Technical Manager for Capital Safety Australia and New Zealand.
"After releasing our range of Nano-Lok™ SRLs we saw a need in the field for an extremely lightweight and compact SRL for use in high heat environments."
Belonging to the Nano-Lok family, these new SRLs have the same feature set making them the most compact and lightweight self retracting lifelines on the market. They can be used in place of lanyards and can be directly attached to any harness, reducing fall clearances. Designed for ease-of-use, these SRLs are virtually unnoticeable to the user when worn and provide the ultimate in work site flexibility.
The new specialist Nano-Lok™ range for Hot Work Use consists of three models designed to cover the majority of applications encountered in high temperature work environments. Constructed from reinforced webbing with Nomex®/Kevlar® fibre, the range withstands sparks, weld splatter and other high heat exposure, ensuring safety around high heat environments. DBI-SALAs i-Safe™ intelligent safety system utilising RFID technology is built into each Nano-Lok™ Hot Work SRL to track inspections, control inventory and manage information.
Capital Safety, a fall protection company and the world's leading designer and manufacturer of height safety, confined space and industrial rescue equipment with 20 operating sites worldwide, is home of the DBI-SALA® and PROTECTA® brands.
