Like a rubber band, this lanyard expands to 6 feet and contracts to 4.5 feet based upon your movements. The stretch tubular lanyard keeps the lanyard compact, thus reducing all dragging, snagging, and associated trip/fall hazards.
At ConfinedSpace.com we have a wide range of safety and security lanyards from Protecta, DBI-SALA and Miller. Each provides a secure anchor system for confined space and ‘at-height’ work. Lanyards are a vital piece of fall protection gear; each unit includes secure connectors and offers a degree of shock absorption to safely arrest a fall, reducing harm to the wearer like any good piece of personal protective equipment (PPE) should.
The Manyard from Miller, for example, has a specially designed core that can stretch to slowly arrest a fall, without jarring the user. Designed to be robust, should the inner core stretch beyond its capabilities, the outer super-strong nylon sleeve acts as a secure backup.
The Retrax Shock Absorbing Lanyard features an extendable line that automatically adjusts the length of the lanyard, from 2 1/2 up to 6 feet, and is a strong alternative to elastic lanyards. The technology keeps the lanyard taught at all times, reducing the fall distance and therefore the fall forces.
The Capital Safety Protecta Pro is the opposite of this: an elasticized lanyard that stretches from 4.5 to six feet to safely reduce fall arrest forces.
DBI-SALA’s Shockwave 2 lanyard is another lightweight, yet strong safety line: Weighing only 2.3lb the elasticized nature means no dragging around a long line that can trip or snag around the work-site.
If you need something more heavy-duty then take a look at the Stretchable ShockWave2. This lanyard’s features make it a standout industrial strength lanyard: strong abrasion resistant tubular webbing gives it extra durability, and an impact indicator allows you to readily and quickly inspect the unit for safety prior to use.
All of these lanyards are OSHA and ANSI compliant meaning that regardless of where your team is working (in confined spaces or at height on: oil rigs, refineries, gas works, sewer or manhole engineering and tank maintenance work), they can all do their jobs with total confidence in the lanyard they are attached with.
