ShockWave™2 shock absorbing lanyards incorporate a unique stretchable design. A built-in impact indicator provides easy visual evidence if the shock has been involved in a fall. All DBI/SALA® lanyards incorporate our patented self-locking snap hooks which are widely recognized in the industry for their user friendly operation and are preferred by safety professionals and workers alike. Specifically designed to allow you to open and connect the hook without getting your thumb or fingers in the way - even with gloves on.
General industry shock-absorbing lanyards attach a worker's safety harness to an anchor point on a building or structure to stop the worker from free-falling if he or she falls while working at heights. They are commonly used in the construction, manufacturing, oil and gas, and wind energy industries.
Shock-absorbing lanyards dampen the jolt at the bottom of a fall to help reduce the risk of fall injuries. They are typically lighter than self-retracting lifelines (SRLs). The lanyards attach a worker's safety harness to an anchor point on a building or structure to stop the worker from free-falling if he or she falls while working at heights, and the lanyards expand to help dissipate the force of the fall as it is arrested. Users must make sure there is enough distance between the anchor point and the surface below them for the lanyard to fully expand during a fall, so shock-absorbing lanyards are best suited for applications where there is a long fall clearance. They are commonly used in the construction, manufacturing, and utilities industries.
Compliant fall protection and emergency rescue systems help prevent serious injury during fall arrest. Users must read and understand the User Instructions provided with the product and be properly trained by their employer prior to use per OSHA 1910.66 and 1926.503 or applicable local standards. Misuse or failure to follow warnings and instructions may result in serious personal injury or death. For proper use, see supervisor, User Instructions, or call Technical Service at 1-800-560-1094.
