Self-retracting lifeline from Capital Safety

February 29, 2012  By Capital Safety

Capital Safety has introduced the new DBI-SALA Nano-Lok self-retracting lifeline. These new SRLs can be used in place of lanyards and can be directly attached to most harnesses, increasing productivity, comfort and safety.

At only 1.6 pounds, the Nano-Lok is virtually unnoticeable to the
user and provides a high level of work site comfort, flexibility and
safety. The Nano-Lok is 15 per cent lighter and 30 per cent smaller than
competing products, making it the most compact and lightweight self-retracting lifeline on the market. The lightweight design provides
unbeatable comfort and productivity, while still protecting workers up
to 420 pounds.

The Nano-Lok SRL technology continuously retains enough tension on the
lifeline to keep it out of the worker’s way, virtually eliminating
dragging, snagging and the potential for trip falls. Additionally, the
automatic activating arrester locks quickly to stop falls within inches,
instead of the many feet required with traditional lanyards, which
reduces free-fall distance and provides more protection at lower
heights. The Nano-Lok also features a unique six-foot web lifeline for
added strength.
Multiple anchorage options are provided to increase functionality and
versatility. The quick-connect anchorage connector allows the Nano-Lok
to be attached directly to the back of most harnesses without a separate
carabineer. The Nano-Lok can be attached to the webbing, instead of the
D-ring, allowing the D-ring to be used for other equipment or rescue.
The cab-mount anchorage connector allows a direct connection to the cab
of an order picker, while the swiveling loop provides full range of
The Nano-Lok can also be arranged as a twin-leg SRL to provide 100
per cent tie-off capability. The twin-leg configuration provides
continuous fall protection and added mobility when moving from one
location to another. The Nano-Lok meets CSA Z259.2.2-98, type 1
