Tractel’s new Blocfor AES

Tractel Fallstop has launched a new self-retracting lifeline range, called Blocfor AES. The new lifeline ensures an automatic braking function in the event of a fall. The fall height is restricted by the immediate brake reaction.

The cable length is adjusted automatically thanks to a recall system integrated into the device, which offers the user a great deal of freedom of movement.

The Blocfor is especially designed for working in a vertical position under a structure. However, the Blocfor can also operate horizontally with a webbing lanyard.

The automatic carabiner lifeline is available with or without a fall indicator.
