Stainless steel anchor with real thermal isolation: ABS-Lock X-Therm

ABS-Lock X-Therm is the right choice, thus preventing an unnecessary, resp. unwanted flow of thermal energy if roofs have to be penetrated.

Thanks to the included special spacer the highly-effective insulation layer, espacially in case of a passive or energy-plus house etc., survives.

Of course, our anchorage point is also certified in accordance with EN 795:2012, A & CEN/TS 16415:2013 to keep you and your employees safe in situations where several individuals are working at the same time.

ABS CLiC-iT - portable PPE

The ABS CLiC-it is based on 2 interconnected carabiners. These communicate with each to ensure that at least one carabiner is attached at all times - preventing the system from accidentally being detached. An individual is usually secured by attaching the system to the breast eyelet of the user's safety harness.

Our ABS CLiC-iT offers outstanding protection and is especially designed for situations lacking a permanently installed safety system, e.g. external ladders for climbing masts etc. and platform construction work. Naturally, you can use our ABS CLiC-iT with your existing system, e.g. ABS-Lock SYS.

  • Rules out accidental detachment
  • Vertical & horizontal usage
  • 100 % portable, weights less than 2 kg
