Product description ABS CompactForce

Optimal cable tension all year round - end attachment equipped with a clever spring bias mechanism - specially designed for lifeline systems

Use an ABS CompactForce to keep your lifeline system taut! The high quality spring bias mechanism is used to counter fluctuations in your system as a result of temperature changes (straight cable stretches). The device has a gauge which can be easily read to provide information on the exact tension level.

This tensioning element is pre-installed prior to delivery which considerably reduces your installation effort. Once the device has been installed and the tension of the lifeline system set, simply pull out the red lever to ensure that your fall arrest system stays set at the optimum tension level.

Another special feature: Thanks to a small inspection window, all you need is one quick glance during installation and system maintenance work to verify that the end of the cable has been pushed in far enough and that it has been attached correctly. Two ABS CompactForce models are available: One that is suitable for 6 mm stainless steel cables and another specially designed for 8 mm cables. Both tensioning device models can be used as an end attachment in any ABS-Lock SYS lifeline system.

Manufactured from highly weather-resistant, 1.4401 grade V4A steel, this tensioning element is also ideal for implementation in harsh environments - such as in coastal regions.
