6mtr light weight fall arrest block / inertia reel
The 6mtr lightweight webbing fall arrest block weighs in at only 1.7kg. It achieves this weight by using Kevlar webbing as opposed to wire rope. The Kevlar webbing has an excellent strength to weight ratio and so is perfect for use in a fall arrest block or inertia reel. The Kevlar lanyard in this retractable fall arrest block is connected to a swivelling carbine hook which the user attaches to the dorsal anchor point on their full body fall arrest safety harness. The 6mtr lightweight webbing fall arrest block works like a seat belt allowing the user to move freely within a 6mtr radius. If the user falls the 6mtr lightweight webbing fall arrest block will lock up and prevent the user falling too far. Mini blocks, like all PPE the 6mtr lightweight webbing fall arrest block must be inspected by a competent person every 6 months. All of Chain and Rope Suppliers technicians are trained in the inspection and recertification of fall arrest blocks and inertia reels.
