V-TEC™ Self-Retracting Lifeline
With premium stainless steel components and innovative engineering, the V-TEC Self Retracting Lifeline incorporates a precision-made spring radial energy absorber that requires zero calibration or adjustment. The retraction dampening feature controls cable retraction speeds preventing pre-mature and accidental load indicator deployment.
V-TEC™ Personal Fall Limiter
The V-TEC Mini retactable lanyard is the most compact & lightweight self-retracting lanyard ever developed using multiple spring radial energy-absorbing technology. This new design eliminates the need for an external energy-absorber outside of the housing making it the smallest retractable lanyard on the market.
The Anthron Descender is a manually operated, controlled descent device most commonly used for suspended work positioning, self-evacuation, or rescue operations. A cam assembly provides friction on the rope to hold a load or allow the load to descend at a controlled rate. The system consists of a 7/16" (11mm) rope, the Anthron Descender, and two carabiners. Proper roping and rigging diagrams are on the side of the device, which can be installed or removed at any point on the rope and has a working load of 300 pounds (136 kg).
Maintenance and utility workers are protected from the hazard of high-energy electric arc flash while wearing ArcSafe® Harnesses. This harness may also be used for retrieval from a confined space. The nylon web loop that is included adds comfort by reducing overall harness weight and also reduces potential of electrical arc to harness. The Y-Shaped back web adds additional comfort and adjustability.
The Beam Trolley is a moveable anchorage connector designed to support either personnel or material. Trolley consists of a carriage with four wheels containing anti-friction bearings that are connected to aluminum housings and to a steel cross bar. Cross bar provides an anchorage point for attaching fall protection equipment. Trolley can be positioned anywhere along an overhead beam to provide mobility in a horizontal direction, and fits the support beam as specified by the user.
Intended to be used in a basket configuration only, the Cable Sling is approved for use by one person at a time with approved systems. Two strands of cable sling must be of equal length to ensure an even distribution of a load.
Diamond® Energy-Absorbing Lanyard
Raising the standard for shock-absorbing lanyards, the FP Diamond Energy Absorbing Lanyard's light weight and streamlined design contains a strong and durable polyester sheath that's abrasion and UV-resistant. FP Diamond Energy Absorbing Lanyards connect the back (dorsal) D-ring of MSA full-body harnesses to a qualified anchorage and anchorage connector. The energy absorber keeps fall arrest forces below ANSI and OSHA limits and deceleration distance is controlled to a maximum of 42 inches.
When personnel need to self-rescue or evacuate from an elevated area, the Automatic Dynescape Defender is fast enough to allow for safe evacuation, but slow enough not to cause injury upon landing. The rate of descent is constant at approximately 6 feet per second.
For the latest design features that improve user comfort, ease of use, durability, and user safety, choose the EVOTECH ® Harness. The EVOTECH harness has Nanosphere® coating on the webbing that repels grease, dirt & moisture.
FP Rescue Ropes
Superior flexibility provided by unique double-twist cable core construction gives MSA Rescue Ropes resistance four times greater than other static kernmantle ropes. Designed with load absorbing capabilities to provide additional safety in the event a dynamic force is applied.
Gravity series harnesses meet the needs of workers in specialty environments of specific work applications such as high heat, welding, corrosion, rescue, rigging and suspension. The Gravity® Coated Harness uses a special urethane web coating to resist stains and wear and tear that are common when working in dirty environments.
