Edge Series Heavy Duty Retractables in Guardian Fall Protection
The Guardian Edge Series Heavy Duty Retractable is designed to be used specifically for leading edge work. With an integrated shock pack attached to the cable lifeline, the retractable will keep the arresting forces below 900 lbs. while at the same time reduce the amount of impact forces on the cable lifeline itself.The ideal position of a retractable, when used as a part of a PFAS, is directly overhead. Often, contractors will place a retractable on the deck and use it at foot level. Almost all retractables on the market are not allowed to be used in this manner if the worker is exposed to a leading edge hazard.
Adding the integrated shock pack to the retractable lifeline will help reduce the impact forces of the cable as it comes into contact with the leading edge.
