Latchways has introduced the next generation ManSafe Mini Self-Retracting Lifeline (SRL) to its portfolio. Smaller and lighter than its predecessor, the company has produced what it claims is the most technologically advanced SRL available on the market.
The patented, frictionless braking system and multiple spring radial energy-absorbing technology - does away with many of the problems that can be associated with conventional SRLs that employ tensioned spring locking mechanisms and friction-based braking i.e. increased wear and tear. Weighing a little over two pounds when fitted with a double locking snap hook, the mini is six feet in length. It can be used with a range of connectors including a forged steel snaphook, a carabiner/hook and aluminum scaffolding hook.
Thanks to its ultra-strong, transparent polycarbonate casing, the new ManSafe SRL mini can be visually inspected prior to use. With the Latchways ManSafe SRL, users from 132-309 lbs., including tools are accommodated.
The ManSafe SRL Mini is particularly suitable for use in close anchorage applications such as construction and maintenance, or where working space is limited. The highly durable see-through polycarbonate case protects the Mini SRL’s internal components from any impact damage and the energy absorber is completely sealed from external contaminants.
