The versatile securing device FALLSTOP® BK stands out thanks to its simplicity. When ascending and descending the device slides at the same time. On roofs, the rope length adjustment feature manually positions the device. When taut, the rope brake clamps. In the event of a fall, the device arrests the person safely and limits the fall impact force to less than 6.0 kN. An additional energy absorber is not required.For more than 30 years the FALLSTOP® BK range has been adapted to the standard and an additional model with an integrated panic lock has been developed. Falls usually catch the user unawares. If the user is holding the unit in their hand at that moment, a panic reaction could cause the device to jam or break and obstruct the clamping function of the securing device, which is why BORNACK equips its devices with a PANIK STOP feature.
