Shock Pack Lanyard

Shock pack lanyards (including stretch-type energy absorbers) reduce the ensuing force in the case of a fall. A shock pack lanyard consists of several layers of tape sewn on top of each other. In the case of a fall, the layers are stretched apart, thus reducing the ensuing force to a maximum of 6kN. When implementing a retention or arresting system, it is crucial to take this stretch into consideration. Most connectors are equipped with an integrated shock pack.

Shock pack lanyards are tested and certified in accordance with DIN EN 355. In accordance with DGUV rule 112-198, a shock pack is part of an individual's personal fall protection kit (PPE) and as such should always be subjected to a visual inspection prior to usage. In addition, it is a legal requirement to have the complete kit (including the shock pack) inspected by a suitably qualified PPE specialist at least once a year to ensure it is in perfect working order.
