In public and freely-accessible zones, anchorage devices are quite often difficult to reach. The best example of this is over an office window. If you want to hook up the lanyard of your personal protection equipment (PPE) or a self-retracting lifeline (SRL) from a safe position, you will need a telescopic rod. We have included our ABS UP System in our product portfolio specially for usage with ABS Safety PPE.

Upon request, we can also supply our ABS Lanyard connector and ABS B-Lock self-retracting lifelines with special DBI carabiner hooks. These special hooks can be operated using an ABS UP System telescopic rod. This rod is available in 3 different extension lengths: 58 - 98 cm, 160 - 290 cm and 210 - 390 cm - allowing you to easily reach anchorage points installed higher up or in a fall danger zone - e.g. over an open window which can neither be closed nor opened once you have hooked up your protective equipment. Our ABS UP System is based on a durable, lightweight combination of aluminium and robust synthetic materials.
