Double lanyard with integrated energy absorber.

SKU: L64YA Category: Tags: , ,



“2016 sees a complete revamp the ABSORBICA fall arrest lanyard range. All of the new ABSORBICA assembled lanyards are fitted with a low volume tear web pack with a progressive deployment specifically adapted to different user weights. What does this mean? For the first time a single model of fall arrest lanyard can be used by all users whose weight is between 50 and 130 kg. The tear webbing has been designed to provide a three stage deployment, absorbing the energy produced by the falling user in a way that most suits their weight whilst decelerating them at a g-force they can withstand. This is real innovation and will be appreciated by all who specify fall arrest lanyards in industry and for rescue. The reduced bulk of this new web pack has other benefits. It avoids conflict with the user’s movements and reduces interference with the handling of the lanyard system. The new ABSORBICA range covers single and twin leg lanyards, adjustable leg lanyards, lanyards with tie-back points and European and International standard compliant versions.”


“Double lanyard with integrated compact energy absorber, for continuous protection when passing intermediate anchors. It is available in 80 or 150 cm versions (without connectors). The 150 cm version has elasticated arms, to avoid hindering progression. Available with or without MGO large-opening connectors, it is certified to European and Russian standards.”

  • Designed for continuous protection when passing intermediate anchor points
  • Absorbs energy in case of a fall:
    – tearing of the energy absorber webbing limits the impact force on the user
    – works with users who weigh between 50 and 130 kg
    – progressive tearing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users
  • Minimal bulk:
    – compact energy absorber facilitates handling
    – the 150 cm version has elastic arms, to avoid hindering progression
  • Abrasion resistance:
    – durable zippered fabric pouch protects the energy absorber from abrasion or contaminants while allowing for regular inspection of the absorber
    – lanyard and pouch reduce the risk of cuts and potential severing over edges
  • Two options for installation on the harness, depending on use:
    – frequent connection/disconnection: with a carabiner held in correct position by the STRING (included with the lanyard) or with a MICRO SWIVEL to avoid tangling
    – semi-permanent connection: with a RING OPEN whose circular shape ensures optimal positioning, or with a SWIVEL OPEN to avoid tangling
  • Available without connector or with MGO large-opening connectors, also in two lengths: 80 and 150 cm


  • Material(s): polyester, nylon, high-modulus polyethylene, aluminum
