Latchways has introduced the next generation ManSafe Mini Self-Retracting Lifeline (SRL) to its portfolio. Smaller and lighter than its predecessor, the company has produced what it claims is the most technologically advanced SRL available on the market. Central to this claim is both the patented, frictionless braking system and multiple spring radial energy-absorbing technology, which does away with many of the problems that can be associated with conventional SRLs that employ tensioned spring locking mechanisms and friction-based braking such as increased wear and tear. Weighing a little over 2 pounds when fitted with a double locking snap hook, the mini is 6 feet in length. It can be used with a range of connectors including a forged steel snaphook, a carabiner/hook and aluminium scaffolding hook. Thanks to its ultra-strong, transparent polycarbonate casing, the new ManSafe SRL mini can be visually inspected prior to use. With the SRL, users from 132-309 pounds, including tools, are accommodated. The ManSafe SRL Mini is particularly suitable for use in close anchorage applications such as construction and maintenance, or where working space is limited. The highly durable see-through polycarbonate case protects the Mini SRL’s internal components from any impact damage and the energy absorber is completely sealed from external contaminants, making it an ideal choice in sectors such as the rail industry, oil and gas, and industrial process, where dirt and grime are present and temperatures can be extreme.
