Every day workers put up with mini blocks, fall limiters and retractable lanyards sometimes referred to as “seat belt retractors.” These substandard products utilize technology developed by car companies for restraint, which was never intended to be used for fall arrest. The Talon™ self retracting lifeline is built from the ground up using the latest in self retracting lifeline technology. Talon™ has many obvious features such as its compact size, light weight, integral anchorage connector that attaches the SRL directly to the user’s harness and an audible indicator. Talon’s all metal braking system features an anti-ratcheting dual pawl design, with pawls functioning independently for added security. And because it operates on velocity not acceleration, your workers can maintain a normal work pace and not be interrupted with constant lock-ups. An SRL’s lifeline will extend as the user moves away, and retract automatically enabling the user to move about within a recommended working area at normal speeds. Should a fall occur, a speed sensing brake system will activate stopping the fall and reducing the forces imposed on the user to safe levels.
