    Thimbled looped lanyards.

    Key Features

    • 3 strands rope.
    • 2 thimbled loops.

    Design :

    • Length: 1 m.
    • Diameter: 14 mm.

    Industry / Job : Construction & Civil, Rescue & Emergency

    Hazard / Risk : Fall

    How To Use

    Instruction for use:

    • The lanyard must be used with a fall arrester system as defined in the product data sheet.
    • The lanyard anchoring point should be located above the user (minimum resistance: 10 kN). For safety reasons before each use, make sure that no obstacle can prevent the strap unwinding normally (free space under the user’s feet). Check that the overall arrangement limits the pendulum effect in the event of a fall and work can be carried out so as to limit the risk and height of a fall.
    • We recommend individually assigning a device to each user.
    • The lanyard must only be used by one person at a time. This equipment is for the sole use of people trained, skilled and in good health, or under the supervision of a trained and skilled person.

    Instructions for storage:

    • The lanyard should be stored in its bag in a warm, dry, well-ventilated location.
    • Keep it well away from all heat sources.
    • During transport, keep the lanyard in its bag, well away from any cutting surface.

    Instructions for maintenance:

    It is good practice to:

    • Regularly clean the lanyard with plain water and let dry in the air.
    • Do not use bleach, solvents, petrol, or dye as they will affect the performance of the lanyard.
    • Apply disinfectant product and allow to remain for 10 minutes for 100% kill of vegetative organisms by sponge, mop, cloth, pressure sprayer, fogging device, portable sprayer.

    Tests Conducted

    • Slippage: EN 354:2010 now includes an adjustable lanyard slippage test. This is a similar test to the one found in EN 358:1999. The adjustment device is placed at the mid-length position and a static load of 6kN is applied for three minutes. To pass this test, the adjustment device must not slip by more than 50mm. This test is carried out two or three times (depending on the conditions claimed), first using the general conditioning of 23°C ± 5°C and 65 percent ± 5 percent RH, and then to a sample conditioned to wet and cold. A second sample can be used for this test. If a manufacturer is claiming the very cold performance rating, this test is repeated again to this conditioning.
    • Static Strength: In use, lanyards can be subject to some of the highest levels of wear and tear in a fall arrest system. Lanyards can abrade against edges and other obstacles, as well as being exposed to adverse weather conditions and UV light. It is due to these adverse conditions that the standard retains the 22kN static strength requirement for textile lanyards from the 2002 edition. This is above the standard 2.5 times safety factor used in most fall arrest standards. Lanyards constructed entirely from metal are subjected to a 15kN static strength test, as they are more resilient to wear and tear. Lanyards terminated with connectors have the connectors removed for the static strength tests. The connectors are still included in the corrosion test.
    • Dynamic Strength: Lanyards which include a length adjustment device are subjected to a dynamic strength test. This test differs from previous test methods for adjustable lanyards. A 100kg test mass is attached to the test sample via a 2m reference lanyard. The mass is raised 2m above the attachment point, giving a free-fall distance of 4m. To pass this test, the lanyard must retain the test mass clear of the ground. There is no requirement for measuring the forces generated. After the dynamic test, a 3kN static strength test is performed on the adjustment device to test the lanyard’s residual strength. If the lanyard can withstand this force for three minutes after the mass is dropped, it is considered to have met the requirements.
    • Corrosion: The corrosion testing of the metallic components is now assessed by 48-hour exposure time. The extra exposure to the neutral salt spray can lead to failures of metallic components that are already used on products which only required 24-hour exposure. This longer test may require a change of coating on the metallic components in order to meet the new requirements.

    Remarks

    • The harnesses are designed for one person with a combined total weight no greater than 100 kg, including clothing, tools and other user borne objects.
    • It can not come in contact with high-temperature surfaces heat source.
