Energy Absorbing Lanyards
The MSA new range of shock absorbing-lanyards including the versions with a leading edge approval! The energy absorber keeps fall arrest forces below 6 kN. The lanyards are available in web and kernmantel rope configurations with a variety of connectors.
MSA offers several types of reliable restraint lanyards, which are primarily used for travel restriction and work positioning.
Workman® Energy-Absorbing Lanyard
When free-fall distance can exceed two feet, use a lightweight, low-profile Workman® Energy-Absorbing Lanyard. The energy absorber not only limits force on the body in a fall, but also on the anchor location. The shock absorber includes a clear, durable protective cover over the labels to increase service life and allow for easy inspection.
Diamond® Energy-Absorbing Lanyard
Raising the standard for shock-absorbing lanyards, the FP Diamond Energy Absorbing Lanyard's light weight and streamlined design contains a strong and durable polyester sheath that's abrasion and UV-resistant. FP Diamond Energy Absorbing Lanyards connect the back (dorsal) D-ring of MSA full-body harnesses to a qualified anchorage and anchorage connector. The energy absorber keeps fall arrest forces below ANSI and OSHA limits and deceleration distance is controlled to a maximum of 42 inches.
A fall restraint lanyard connection is used between the anchor point and the body harness to prevent the user from reaching the fall area and work positioning applications. MSA restraint lanyards are available in web and kernmantel rope.
