Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands of fall protection equipment has announced the launch of their new Nano-Lok™ LE Self Retracting Lifeline (SRL) engineered for both foot level tie-off and sharp edge applications.
While traditional general purpose products anchored at foot level and used in sharp edge environments may increase the risk of injury and create a false sense of security at height, the Nano-Lok LE is designed specifically for use in sharp edge applications. The unused lifeline also retracts so workers can anchor at their feet and move freely and with confidence at height. The Nano-Lok™ edge incorporates a 2.4 metre working length lifeline, ergonomic design, and is available in single or twin (100% tie-off) units.
The Nano-Lok™ LE is the only personal SRL on the market to pass the most stringent leading edge standard set by ANSI Z359.14, as well as the sharp edge requirements outlined in VG11.60 and VG11.54 in EN360: 2002. It is also compliant with AS/NZS 1891.3. Its tough lifeline material, patent pending energy absorber, and durable harness connector work together to absorb and limit the arresting forces in the event of a fall, and to mitigate the effect of a sharp edge on the lifeline even under harsh conditions.
"When workers anchor at their feet with traditional equipment that's not specifically designed for foot level tie-off, they're putting themselves at risk," said Rick Millar, technical manager for Capital Safety Australia and New Zealand.
"The Nano-Lok™ LE is specifically designed for leading edge work and foot level tie-off situations, so workers at height can do their job safely and with confidence."
The Nano-Lok™ LE personal SRL includes:
- An integrated backpack style energy absorber
- Global sharp edge icon
- Impact-resistant housing
- Tough and flexible galvanised cable or webbing lifelines
- Various hook or karabiner options
- An easy-to-install connector for direct harness attachment
