Where large areas have been equipped with single anchorage points or non-traversable lifeline systems, the users often face the same problem: The carabiner of the lanyard (cable between body and anchorage option) has to be unhooked and hooked back up when switching from one anchorage point to the next - or when going past intermediate posts or corner elements in a lifeline system. Not only is this in violation of the fall protection regulations, it can also be lethal. Should the user slip just at that particular moment in time, he/she may suffer a dangerous fall off or through the structure.
Avoid this risk by using an ABS Lanyard - Y-connector. This dual band lanyard (tested in accordance with EN 354) does not simply offer 1 cable with an attached carabiner hook for hooking up to the respective anchorage system - but instead 2 large pipe hooks that can be moved on one after the other. This means that the user remains safely secured even when re-attaching one of the hooks - prepared at all times for a wrong step or accidental slip. Our ABS Lanyard - Y-connector is also equipped with a high-quality energy absorber (tested in accordance with EN 355) that considerably reduces the force exerted on the user's body in the case of a fall.
At the heart of our ABS Lanyard - Y-connector model is a robust, red kernmantle cable. This extremely durable cable is 12 mm in diameter - and it goes without saying that we have tested it on sharp edges. The variant with 2 pipe hooks attached to this connector cable let you use it with load-bearing pipes or similar anchorage options. The larger openings can also be used with typical anchors, lifeline systems or cable gliders.
