The Rebel 33 ft. Self Retracting Lifeline (SRL)is an incredibly useful piece of passive fall prevention equipment from Protecta by Capital Safety. Offering all the benefits or a traditional lanyard with none of the pains (snagging, tripping etc) as well as reduced twisting, fall clearance and fall forces. All of which make it a great choice for beefing up your work at heights safety set up.
Speed sensing brakes prevent a fall from carrying too far, reducing forces and clearance requirements. A 420 lb. load capacity and it's even possible for the worker to be loaded up with some tools and still remain safe and secure. While the rotating hook connector means that the cabling does not become twisted, awkward or uncomfortable.
The swiveling anchor point acts to keep the SRL in the most natural position and the connector itself is a self-locking snap hook that is rated up to 3,600 lbs.; preventing accidental disengagement or rollout.
The lifeline itself features an impact load indicator, something standard on Capital Safety equipment, which allows you to see if a load or force has been taken by the SRL and take appropriate action (remove from use if a fall arrest is indicated to have taken place).
A range of casing options are available: there is the tough thermoplastic housing the Rebel 33 ft. is dent proof, lightweight and will take years of abuse. Or there is the option of strong, corrosion resistant aluminum housing. Either of which will be sure to keep the stainless steel innards working smoothly for years.
The options for the super long 33 ft. (10m) line itself are 5mm thick galvanized steel cabling - great for any non-marine work site; the Zinc coating makes it resistant to rusting and prevents wear. Or there is the more durable stainless steel line - perfect for harsh and corrosive environments, such as marine or coastal sites which could well damage a less durable line.
Meeting all OSHA and ANSI safety standards for work at heights safety the Rebel Protecta is a great addition to any work at heights site, used often by construction workers, roofers, solar panel installation engineers, arborists, fire fighters and the military.
