FallTech--The #1 Brand of SRL's We Sell!
We sell a lot of Self Retracting Lifelines (aka "SRL's" or "SRD's") each year, but none more so than the FallTech units. They have something for everybody, but what really makes them shine is their combination of quality and value. For example, the Contractor series is a true best-seller for us! The FallTech Contractor 30 ft Cable SRL seems to be the go to for many of our customers. It has a rugged, lightweight design and at 30 ft in length, it offers enough reach for most jobs. It is rated for workers up to 310 lbs and meets ANSI Z359.1‐2007 standards. A newer version of this unit is the FallTech Contractor 30 ft Leading Edge Cable SRL, which is specifically designed to withstand the additional stress created by falls on leading edges. That means this unit can be used in traditional overhead applications, but may also be used in situations where it is anchored below the user's D-Ring. It has beefy 7/32" cable, an integrated shock absorber and an internal inertial brake to make it a very safe unit. It is also available in a 50 ft model, #727650LE.
Compact SRL Options
FallTech has recently launched new, compact SRL models. One such model is the FallTech Contractor 20 ft Web SRL, which is a compact, lightweight unit that features Dyneema webbing. The webbing is tough and cut-resistant, but this unit is really best-suited for indoor use. But what if you want something even smaller, that you can wear directly on your back as a traditional lanyard replacement? FallTech has that too! Check out the FallTech DuraTech Mini 6 ft Web SRL, which is a 6 ft "mini SRL" that hooks onto your dorsal D-Ring. It features a large rebar hook too, giving you more flexibility in finding a suitable anchor point.
