Dynamic rope with sewn terminations and plastic protectors
Standards and certifications
Specifications and limitations
Standard testing requires the lanyard hold 22kN.
Proper handling and use
o Attach the lanyard to the ventral or sternal D ring using a RING OPEN, SWIVEL OPEN, a
quick link (EN 362 class Q) or an OMNI carabiner.
o Make sure the connector is properly locked.
o Use a locking carabiner on the other end of the lanyard.
o Limit falls to less than 0.5m in length, with a fall factor of less than 0.5.
o Limit slack in the lanyard as much as possible.
o Avoid areas where there is a fall risk.
o Avoid contact with sharp edges and high temperatures.
o Be aware that nylon is weaker and less abrasion resistant when wet.
Use with energy absorber
o Not compliant with ANSI fall arrest standard.
o If the lanyard is used with an energy absorber, the total length of the assembly (energy
absorber, lanyard, and connectors) must not exceed two meters to meet the EN fall
o Allow for adequate clearance height.
o Do not use two lanyards side by side when each is equipped with an energy absorber.
o Do not attach the unused end of a double lanyard to the harness; in this case, the
energy absorber will not work.
Visually check the condition of the sheath for the full length of the rope, and the safety stitching.
Make sure there are no cuts, burns, frayed strands, fuzzy areas or signs of chemicals.
Be particularly careful to check for cut or loose threads.
