Calculating Your Required Fall Clearance Distance:


A free fall calculator allows you to know the distance you fall before your fall arrest system begins to slow you down. Properly designed fall arrest systems should protect workers from contact with any lower level or obstruction, with no more than a 2 m free fall. This is why the proper calculation of free fall clearance distance from your anchor point is so important ​Refer to the free fall calculator chart ​for calculating fall clearance.
