Leading fall protection equipment designer and manufacturer of height safety equipment, 3M , has introduced the new DBI-Sala Nano-Lok Self Retracting Lifeline (SLR) range. Suitable for most fall protection harnesses, the Nano-Lok is designed to replace lanyards and reduce fall clearances.

Compact and lightweight, these SRL’s are virtually unnoticeable to the user when worn and provide the ultimate work site flexibility.

"3M continues to enhance and adapt products for use in applications across all industries," said Rick Millar, Technical Manager for 3M Australia & New Zealand.

"After releasing our range of Sealed-Blok™ SRL’s we saw a need in the field for an extremely lightweight and compact device that can be directly attached to a harness and used in place of lanyards. It is a unique product that will provide solutions across industries."

Key benefits of the self retracting lifelines includes:

  • lighter and smaller design
  • provides the ultimate comfort and productivity
  • protect workers up to 140kgs
  • quick-connect multiple anchorage options

The SRL technology retains tension on the lifeline at all times, keeping it out of the worker’s way reducing dragging, snagging and trip falls. The automatic activating arrestor locks quickly to stop falls within centimetres, reducing free fall distances and providing more protection at lower heights. It also features a unique 1.8 metre web lifeline for added strength.

The SRL’s can also be arranged as a twin-leg SRL providing 100% tie-off capabilities. The twin-leg configuration provides continuous fall protection and added mobility when moving from one location to another. This configuration can be used to replace twin-leg shock absorbing lanyards.
