Find out more about our ABS Lanyard - temporary lifeline system ABS Lanyard - temporary lifeline system with a kernmantle cable - for safety you can rely on

Our ABS Lanyard can be used as a temporary lifeline in horizontal applications on flat and pitched roof surfaces. The system is based on a kernmantle cable, thus making it easy to transport and quick to set up and take down.

The fact that a kernmantle cable is used means that our ABS lanyard is well-protected as the load-bearing core of the cable is sheathed. This means that external contamination and UV radiation have very little effect on this load-bearing material. In terms of strength and reliability, our ABS Lanyard kernmantle cable has some strong arguments in its favour compared to other products that use a twisted cable.

Simply stretch our ABS lanyard between suitable fixed points or anchorage devices. The maximum possible distance between two fixed points is 21 metres. The carabiner hooks that come with the lanyard can be used to add additional fixed points to your safety system.

Our ABS Lanyard was specially designed as an anchorage device for securing up to 4 individuals simultaneously. A carabiner hook has been sewn firmly onto the product and can be used to connect it to an anchorage device. The unit at the other end of the cable is used to adjust the tension of your lifeline system. The integrated energy absorber has been tested and certified specifically to this purpose. However, this does not replace the lanyard energy absorber.

This temporary lifeline system is available in the following standard lengths: 15, 23 and 30 m. You can combine it, for example, with a lanyard with a built-in energy absorber or with a suitable self-retracting lifeline (ABS B Lock).
