The Tracpac-DL rescue lanyard serves as a dual purpose shock-absorbing lanyard that functions both for fall arrest and rescue applications. The Tracpac-DL is designed with a dual shock absorber which allows each leg to act as an independent shock absorber to reduce the effect of any side load impact potential. It also incorporates extendible (stretch) legs which offer more freedom of movement while reducing tripping hazards during climbing.
The key feature of the Tracpac-DL is the integrated rescue ring at each end of the lanyard legs which allows the rescuer an easy access connection point so that the lanyard, which is under tension of the fallen victim's weight, can be disconnected from the anchorage point, allowing for a more effective and time efficient rescue.
Designed specifically to meet single safety rail turbine designs such as General Electric® this rescue lanyard has an increased distance between the anchor attachment hook and rescue ring allowing the lanyard and Derope® descent device to be attached to the same safety rail which ensures the proper disconnect distance is achieved during rescue.
One connecting component serves the two most important fall protection applications:
- Fall arrest
Stretch design provides reduced trip hazards
In-line rescue ring provides quick link for emergency rescue
Built-in impact indicator / inspection fold
Dual shock absorber reduces side load impact forces
All snap hooks meet 3,600 lbs. (16 kN) gate requirements.
