Tear-webbing energy absorber.

SKU: L064AA00 Category: Tags: ,

Description

The Petzl ABSORBICA is a compact energy absorber, for use in combination with a lanyard to make a fall arrest lanyard. Equipped with tear-webbing inside a zippered fabric pouch, the energy absorber is protected from abrasion while allowing for regular inspection. It has two options for installation on the harness according to the frequency of manipulation.

Description

  • Designed for use in combination with a lanyard to make a fall arrest lanyard with a maximum length of two meters
  • 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 to facilitate handling
  • Abrasion resistance:
    – durable zippered fabric pouch protects the energy absorber from abrasion or contaminants while allowing for regular inspection of the absorber
    – pouch reduces 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 absorber) 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
