Fall Protection, Work Positioning & Confined Spaces

The “Panic Grab” has all the features of the regular rope grab – plus the extra safety of panic locking.

✔ Durable solid stainless steel construction.

✔ Large attachment ring helps prevent roll out.

✔ Tension roller with internal spring keeps the rope grab in position on the line and ensures ease of mobility up and down the lifeline.

V-System Davit and Base Assembly

Light Weight, Easy to Use & Portable

Fallsoft® incorporates the very latest in design by having a built-in shock absorber as an integral part of the vertical anchorage connector, thus reducing the maximum arrest force applied to the body in the case of a fall to a maximum of 900 lbs (4 kN).

The shock absorber also reduces the load spike on the davit and hoist, lessening the chance of any damage to the system.
