Scaffold Lanyards


An energy absorbing lanyard is the connection between the anchor and harness and helps the harness absorb the breaking forces in the event of a fall.

In the event of a fall, the DSL3 retractor INSTANTLY engages, retracting the lifeline, significantly shortening the distance the worker falls compared to a traditional fall arrest lanyard!
