We have a wide range of Self-Retracting Lifelines (SRLs) from the industry’s toughest suppliers. SRLs are a crucial piece of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and act as a secure but extendable lanyard for confined space workers or anyone working at height. With lengths from 6’ to 130’ and a range of features: from short leash nylon models to completely sealed, corrosion resistant units such as the Sealed Blok RSQ
A good SRL helps maintain site safety by eliminating some of the common problems associated with traditional fixed lanyards (namely snagging and tripping on the line), while providing reduced fall forces and increasing safety on-site.
Our simplest and shortest lifelines are the Rebel Protecta
series from Capital Safety, offering 6’ of protection, with the standard SRL feature of auto-fall arrest to reduce fall forces. While these units are lightweight and highly portable, they are fully capable of taking a 310lb load.
The Turbo T-BAK Tie-Back
units from Miller Safety provide a similar level of protection, with increased gate hook strength and added flexibility from the ability to tie back on the line at any point.
The UltraLok series
by DBI/SALA provides a sturdier form of protection, being rated all the way up to 420lbs, as opposed to 310lbs, which is the standard across most other lifelines and lanyards. Swiveling anchorage and aluminum side plates and a specialized anti-ratchet brake design make these durable and long-lasting SRLs. Stainless steel lines are also available for extra corrosion resistance.
Taking things a step further is the Sealed SRL series
, which provides a strong, corrosion free lanyard in lengths up to 130ft. Cast aluminum housing on these DBI/Sala units provide strong, lightweight protection and helps seal the unit keeping dirt, water and grime out while offering remarkable corrosion resistance.
By far the longest SRL and fall arrest lanyard we have in stock is the Mighty Lite
from Miller. With Durable aluminum housing protecting the aluminum and stainless steel working parts to provide a long life, the Mighty Lite has 175ft of galvanized steel wire-rope lifeline, providing the most complete, stress free SRL we stock.
The sturdiest SRL we stock is the DBI Sealed Blok RSQ
: a rescue SRL lanyard and with its auto-rescue system, with incredible specs for weather resistance and strength. Weatherproofing is achieved via IP68 rated protection (the unit is submersible) and corrosion resistant: all working parts are sealed off from the outside worlds inside the steel plated housing; it is ideal for offshore or coastal work where salty sea air can wreak havoc with a less sturdy unit.
The RSQ can bear loads up to 420lbs, and the gated hooks can take 3,600lbs, the 50ft line is available as either galvanized or stainless line The automatic rescue system activates in the event of a fall, arresting the rapid descent, and acting to slowly lower the user to the ground below, preventing the need for expensive and time-consuming rescue operations. The RSQ also features a built-in winch should there be a need to retrieve personnel or to use the unit as a transport mechanism for equipment.
This extensive range of self retracting lifelines contains a variety of lanyards and SRL tools for used in confined space access work. City water and sewer workers, manhole entry, oil rig, refinery and chemical production or processing jobs, engineers, maritime workers, or anyone needing fall protection can benefit from the added safety and convenience of a SRL, all you need do is choose the unit best suited to your work site, or call our helpful customer service folks
