Self Retracting Lifelines

Construction jobsites are dangerous places, especially for workers standing on the edge of a building or scaffolding. Workers often use lanyard systems to prevent falls, but Self Retracting Lifelinesthese often restrict their range of motion to a few feet and can get in their way. Self Retracting Lifelines (SRL’s) are a significant improvement on the lanyard because they are safer and allow for more productivity.

How SRL’s Work

To use an SRL, you attach the system securely somewhere above your head with the carabiner on the box. Then, the swivel hook with a self-locking gate clips onto your harness. The design of this hook allows for easy side-to-side or twisting movement, so that you are not restricted by the line. As you move around and work, the lifeline extends automatically while still keeping tension. This eliminates any slack in the line, so that you are not jerked sharply in the case of a stumble or fall. If the line is pulled out too quickly, the system will lock the line within a couple inches to prevent falls.

Superior Performance

These devices are invaluable to anyone working at challenging jobsites. SRL’s come in a variety of lengths ranging from 6’ to 200’, so you can always find the perfect one for your job. Their compact design makes them easy to transport and store, as opposed to rope systems of a comparable length. SRL’s are quick to set up and allow for a wide range of motion, letting workers focus on their jobs without thinking twice about their lifeline.
