Pure Safety Group’s Guardian Fall Protection brand has introduced a new cable lanyard, compatible for leading edges, that combines the lightweight durability of a fixed-length lanyard that permits up to 12 feet of fall protection during the event of a free fall from an at-height working surface.
Through extensive research and development in Guardian’s ISO/IEC:10725-compliant laboratory, the company established rigorous leading-edge verification testing procedures to ensure consistent performance of the lanyard over a wide range of extreme conditions. Drop-tested in both a perpendicular and offset orientation against .005″ radius steel, the Guardian Cable Leading Edge Lanyard exhibited high performance and predictability – two characteristics that are mandatory when it comes to fall protection.
The Cable Leading Edge Lanyards feature a vinyl-coated ¼-inch galvanized steel cable, combined with Guardian’s proprietary high-efficiency external shock absorber that keeps maximum and average arrest forces low during fall deceleration.
Cable Leading Edge Lanyards are available in single- or dual-leg configurations with steel rebar or snap hooks. A high-visibility orange shock pack cover helps confirm proper application suitability, even from a distance.
