The Sealed Blok Self-Retracting Lifeline is a tough, weatherproof, feature rich piece of fall arrest kit from the personal protective equipment (PPE) experts at DBI-SALA and Capital Safety. Providing the extra safety as associated with an SRL (reduced on site snagging, tripping, fall clearance requirements) compared to a traditional lanyard, but also much, much more: an innovative rescue system, IP68 protection and optional retrieval mode make the Blok SRL ideal for work at heights and confined space entry alike.
The internationally recognized IP68 rating
for water resistance means the Blok is incredibly corrosion resistant. All working parts are completely sealed inside the aluminum and stainless steel plated housing. The unit can actually be submerged and still function fully! This sort of extreme weather resistance is ideal for offshore and coastal sites such as oil rigs and wind farms.
Capable of bearing a load up to 420 lbs.
in weight, the Sealed Blok SRL offers great worksite flexibility whilst still keeping you within fall arrest limits; the gated snap hooks too are able to withstand a force up to 3,600lbs, so you can be sure that once you are hooked in, you won’t be going anywhere.
A strong 50ft (15m) galvanized steel cable (5mm in diameter) is available as standard, with stainless steel options for the tougher work sites out there (coastal or marine environments, where salt-water might corrode the line). The Blok also sports a pivoting anchor and snap hook system to prevent any uncomfortable or awkward twists in the line, making it as simple as possible for your team to concentrate on the task at hand.
Beyond the basics of self-retracting lanyards, the Blok has an array of features and options to simplify your work site and keep your team safe.
A specially designed automatic rescue system, the RSQ will, when activated—after a fall has been arrested—will slowly but surely lower your team member safely to the ground. This is done via an automatically engaged centrifugal brake that gives you a controlled descent after the Blok has safely prevented a fall.
The retrieval option for the Blok takes things a step further, with a built in winch system allowing the SRL to act as personnel or equipment transport, or should the worst happen, allowing for the recovery of injured personnel. The winch has an easy to remove crank and the Blok comes with a simple, tool-free hoist mount, too. The beauty of this addition is that you don’t need to purchase a separate winch, saving you money both on maintenance checks and equipment purchasing.
The now standard i-Safe system from DBI-SALA is a great addition that helps you keep track the maintenance and accountability of all your equipment. Simple scan the RFID tag and you can log the serial number and any incidents, store them safely and securely in the web portal and receive updates when checks are due! The RFID tags themselves need no battery or maintenance, are water, grease and dust proof. So they should easily last as long as the kit itself.
A further innovation is the ability to quickly change the line should it be damaged. This can be done with little training and doesn’t even require opening the Sealed Block itself. What is more, the device won’t function unless the line is installed correctly and safely, meaning that it really is foolproof!
The Sealed Block SRL has everything you would expect and a whole lot more. Versatile, strong and reliable; it really will save you money both on maintenance and equipment purchases. The weatherproofing is second to none, and the whole kit is OSHA and ANSI compliant.
