Capital Safety/DBI-SALA Ultra-Lok lifeline

August 2009 Vol. 64 No. 8

DBI-SALA, a Capital Safety brand, has developed a self retracting lifeline (SRL): the Ultra-Lok RSQ SRL with Rescue.

The Ultra-Lok RSQ offers dual-mode operation that provides fall arrest and rescue/descent in one product for superior fall protection. The Ultra-Lok RSQ SRL with Rescue allows the worker to select either the traditional “fall arrest” mode or a “rescue/descent” mode. If a fall event occurs while in the rescue/descent mode, the Ultra-Lok RSQ will arrest the fall and then automatically lower the worker safely to the ground or next level.

This two-in-one operation allows the device to be optimized for the jobsite while providing the ultimate level of worker safety. If a fall were to occur while the device is in the fall arrest mode, a speed-sensing brake automatically stops the fall, reducing the forces exerted on the user to safe levels of 900 pounds or less. The fall arrest mode also allows for assisted rescue to take place. If a fall occurs while the device is in rescue/descent mode, the speed-sensing brake stops the free fall and a centrifugal brake instantly lowers the user at a controlled speed to the ground or next level. The rescue/descent mode is ideal for situations in which the user is working alone or remotely, or where a rescue would be difficult, or if the next level below the worksite is within 50 feet.

The Ultra-Lok RSQ SRL incorporates a 50-foot lifeline, providing the worker exceptional mobility. Ultra-Lok RSQ SRL supports a capacity of 310 pounds, and meets all applicable industry standards, including OSHA and ANSI Z359.1 and A10.32. 800.328.6146, www.capitalsafety.com
