Fall Protection

Vertical lifeline


The ASAP VERTICAL LIFELINE is a temporary vertical lifeline designed for belaying and protecting against falls from height. It contains a RAY 11-millimeter rope, ASAP or ASAP LOCK mobile fall arrester, an ASAP’SORBER energy absorber, and BM’D or OXAN connectors. The ASAP LOCK mobile fall arrester is designed to facilitate handling during rope ascents. The device moves freely along the rope and follows the user without any manual intervention. In the event of a shock load or sudden acceleration, the fall arrester locks on the rope and stops the user. The integrated locking function allows the user to immobilize the device to reduce the potential fall distance. The connection arm makes the system drop-resistant when passing intermediate anchors.
