New Tractel lifeline brakes falls automatically
By Sarah Ann McCay22 February 2013
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.
