Wire Line Fall Arrest Blocks
Wire line fall arrest blocks are often integrated into bespoke man-riding systems to provide fall protection in the event of a failure to the primary lifting machine / winch. They are often used on man access baskets, tripod and gantry man-riding projects. We offer manually operated fall arrest blocks that need depression of a lever to allow the block to travel on the wire; effectively a dead man handle! We also offer fully automatic fall arrest systems that have an overspeed mechanism that detect the fall and arrests it automatically. All these products are made by Tractel and are complicated / technical products, we look forward to offering our assistance.
