ABS Lanyard - temporary lifeline system: Consisting of a kernmantle cable for safety you can rely on
Our ABS Lamyard was specially designed for usage as temporary lifeline system for horizontal implementation on flat and pitched roofs. This connector is based on a kernmantle cable which makes it considerably lighter, more compact and more user-friendly than traditional systems using polyamide cables.
And that is not all our ABS Lanyard has to offer. Most common anchorage devices deploy twisted cables. Not only are these much heavier than kernmantle ones - they also wear much faster due to their susceptibility to kinking. The ABS Lanyard kernmantle cable, on the other hand, is significantly more robust and resistant to fatigue. Kernmantle cables never have any problems with kinking - and because our ABS Lanyard absorbs less moisture than its twisted polyamide contemporaries, it offers greater weather resistance.
More ABS Lanyard advantages: Firstly, this system has been approved for a maximum distance of 21 meters between two posts. Secondly, the kernmantle cable twists far less than a traditional cable, thus reducing the fall distance.
