Silverwater, New South Wales, Australia, 2013/05/28 - New and improved fall protection lanyards that are lighter, stronger and smaller - CapitalSafety.com.
Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands of fall protection equipment has announced the launch of their new and improved DBI-SALA Force2™ Shock Absorbing Lanyard Range, lighter, stronger and more durable than ever.
The Force2™ fall protection lanyard range features Hi-10™ energy management material, the smallest shock pack in the world, the lightest and strongest connector combinations, durable REPEL™ Technology webbing, and a rugged and durable soft cover with protected labels.
The Force2™ Lanyards are manufactured with the lightest and strongest components on the market. The new Hi-10 shock pack is 66% smaller and 40% lighter than competing products, making it the smallest available shock pack in the world. Consisting of high tenacity fibre energy management material, the Hi-10 is resistant to abrasion, moisture, chemicals and cuts, and uses less than half the material content than competing products.
“We base a lot of our new product development on what we hear from customers; what their specific needs are,” said Rick Millar, Technical Manager for Capital Safety Australia & New Zealand. “As a result we have a stronger lighter lanyard with a wider range of connector options, and an unobtrusive shock absorber that doesn’t get it in the way and knock you about in the back of the head whilst working, like some traditional shock packs can do.”
The Force2™ Lanyard’s superior design is constructed with REPEL™ Technology water repellent webbing to reduce the attraction of mould and dirt, leading to better abrasion resistance. The lanyards are also equipped with an expanded range of lighter and stronger connector combinations, including new triple action karabiners, snap and scaffold hooks to meet the demands of all industry applications. The range also includes the all new WrapBax™ lanyard, specifically designed to withstand the rigorous requirements of tie-back applications, making the application simple, fast and efficient.
DBI-SALA’s i-Safe™ intelligent safety system utilising RFID technology is built into each product in the Force2™ Shock Absorbing Lanyard range to track inspections, control inventory and manage information. The Force2™ range meets all the strict requirements of the AS/NZS 1891.1:2007 standard.
