Fall arrest blocks
The best way to arrest a fall is by using a fall arrest block. A fall arrest block self-retracts immediately in case of a fall and thus always keeps the fall distance to a minimum. Falling with a fall arrest block may only produce a maximum force of 6 kN. For this reason, an energy absorber is installed in the block or at the end of the lanyard to absorb the energy. SKALT fall arrest blocks come in various lengths, from 2.4 metres to 25 metres. This means that it is possible to work at great heights with maximum freedom of movement.
