RETRACTABLE FALL ARRESTER

Retractable Fall Arrester Blocks are a vertical lifeline that are used as part of a complete fall arrest system. The lifeline, much like the seat and shoulder belt in a car, pulls out and retracts easily. In the event of being subjected to a quick jerk, however, the internal mechanism acts to engage a braking system. When the tension is released, the lifeline moves freely again. During a fall event, the internal braking system of the Block functions to disperse the energy of the fall over a short distance, thus limiting the force applied to a user’s body.

The ideal position of a Retractable Block when used as a part of Personal Fall Arrest System, is directly overhead, or to an anchor point that is placed above the level of the Dorsal D-Ring of the user’s harness. However, while working on rooftops, beams, etc, the blocks may be required to be anchored horizontally. Not all blocks can be anchored at this level.

 

KARAM Sharp Edge tested Blocks can be used in horizontal condition, and in such conditions where the worker is exposed to a sharp edge hazard. The integrated energy absorber pack helps to reduce the impact of forces of the cable, as it comes in contact with the sharp edge. Each Block in this range is constructed in such a way that if subjected to contact with a sharp edge in the event of a fall from a roof/terrace etc, the retracted lanyard remains intact, while arresting the fall immediately. These blocks are equipped with an external energy absorber (with protective cover) which reduces the dynamic load impact felt on the user in the event of a fall, to less than 6kN even when the lifeline is fully drawn.

 

Certified for the vertical usage as per EN 360:2002 and Horizontal usage as per VG11 RFU # 11.060.

 

This KARAM range of Sharp Edge tested Retractable Fall Arrester Blocks comes in both GI Wire Rope and in Webbing.

  • These Blocks are lighter in weight and are ideal choice in conditions where it is required that the lanyard offers less abrasion to objects around it.
  • Such conditions are encountered for use in fall protection on external facades, window cleaning, etc. The Retractable Block allows movement to the user at normal speeds, within a recommended working area. In case of a fall, the self braking system within the Block activates and locks the fall, also reducing the impact of fall to less than 6kN.
