Fall restraint lanyards: With a restraint system, the length of the lanyard prevents a user from getting close to the edge of the working platform. The safest way to do this is to use a lanyard with a fixed length (usually ≤ 2,0 m).
Fall arrest lanyards: A fall arrest system does not limit the movement of the user, but deals with the consequences of a fall: it makes sure that the fall is arrested before a user hits the ground. Furthermore, the forces that are released on the user’s body, after a fall is arrested, are minimized. This is done by the integration of a shock absorber in
the lanyard or by an automatic fall arrest device.
FALL ARREST DEVICES
The XStop works a bit like a seatbelt, it unrolls the cable or webbing as the user moves further away. When the users approaches the XStop again, the cable or webbing retracts. Ensuring that the cable or webbing is taut at all times. In case of a fall, the device will block immediately.

ROPE ACCESS PRODUCTS
These products are used for rope access purposes. Extensive knowledge and a special IRATA training is needed to properly use these products.
IRATA stands for Industrial Rope Access Trade Association and a safe method of working at height, using ropes and associated equipment for support and to gain access to and from the workplace. There are different levels of IRATA training, from trainee (level 1) to safety supervisor (level 3).
