A specialized rescue product designed for extreme cases in which a rescuer needs to be lowered head-first into a confined space to perform a rescue. The Confined Space/Head First Extraction System (HFES) allows the rescuer to be lowered comfortably into a confined space head first, harness the victim, and raise both victim and rescuer out of a confined space. Consists of an adjustable lifting strap, an adjustable victim strap, one pair of ankle harnesses, two carabineers, and a storage bag. This small, compact system can be used with any confined space retrieval equipment such as tripods and davits.
Short-Stop® and Sure-Lock® Self-Retracting Lanyards
A fast-acting fall arrester limiting free-fall distance, deceleration distance, and fall arrest forces while allowing user freedom of movement. The Short-Stop and Sure-Lock Self- Retracting Lanyard is compact and lightweight.
The Superlight harnesses are especially designed to protect people working at height keeping the cost of ownership low. All products are light, simple, and meet EN and National Chinese Standard requirements.
Maintenance and utility workers are protected from the hazard of high-energy electric arc flash while wearing ArcSafe® Harnesses. This harness may also be used for retrieval from a confined space. The nylon web loop that is included adds comfort by reducing overall harness weight and also reduces potential of electrical arc to harness. The Y-Shaped back web adds additional comfort and adjustability.
The TechnaCurv® Full Body Harnesses offer features never seen before in full-body harnesses: Curvilinear comfort system, Visco-Elastic shoulder padding, and Sorbtek fabric on the shoulder and sub-pelvic pads. The harness is designed with downward adjusting torso straps on most models to ease fitting.
Thermatek® Energy-Absorbing Lanyard
Specially designed for high-heat applications, Thermatek® Energy-Absorbing Lanyards feature a Tuffweld protective cover over the shock-absorber and a Kevlar back-up strap inside the shock-absorbing pouch. Energy Absorbing Lanyards connect the back (dorsal) D-ring of MSA full-body harnesses to a qualified anchorage and anchorage connector.
Diamond® Energy-Absorbing Lanyard
Raising the standard for shock-absorbing lanyards, the FP Diamond Energy Absorbing Lanyard's light weight and streamlined design contains a strong and durable polyester sheath that's abrasion and UV-resistant. FP Diamond Energy Absorbing Lanyards connect the back (dorsal) D-ring of MSA full-body harnesses to a qualified anchorage and anchorage connector. The energy absorber keeps fall arrest forces below ANSI and OSHA limits and deceleration distance is controlled to a maximum of 42 inches.
Intended to be used in a basket configuration only, the Cable Sling is approved for use by one person at a time with approved systems. Two strands of cable sling must be of equal length to ensure an even distribution of a load.
MSA Rope Grabs
Rope vertical lifelines and rope grabs are used together as a system. Rope Grabs are designed as a means of fall arrest between a worker wearing a compatible full-body harness and a suitable fall arrest anchorage. Applications include roofing, ladder climbing, general construction and tower climbing.
When personnel need to self-rescue or evacuate from an elevated area, the Automatic Dynescape Defender is fast enough to allow for safe evacuation, but slow enough not to cause injury upon landing. The rate of descent is constant at approximately 6 feet per second.
Rescue Utility System
The Rescue Utility System is primarily used for raising and lowering people or equipment in rescue and industrial work access and ideal for confined space applications. A 4:1 rescue pulley system Pulleys are equipped with a built-in anti-reversing lock. Offers rapid deployment, is virtually maintenance free, and is rated for two-person load.
The Anthron Descender is a manually operated, controlled descent device most commonly used for suspended work positioning, self-evacuation, or rescue operations. A cam assembly provides friction on the rope to hold a load or allow the load to descend at a controlled rate. The system consists of a 7/16" (11mm) rope, the Anthron Descender, and two carabiners. Proper roping and rigging diagrams are on the side of the device, which can be installed or removed at any point on the rope and has a working load of 300 pounds (136 kg).
SureClimb® Vertical Lifeline Cable Systems
SureClimb® Vertical Lifeline Cable Systems and cable grabs are designed to provide ladder fall protection when climbing or descending ladders or vertical structures up to 300 feet in height. MSA SureClimb Fall Protection Systems are designed for temporary ladder climbing applications.
FP Rescue Ropes
Superior flexibility provided by unique double-twist cable core construction gives MSA Rescue Ropes resistance four times greater than other static kernmantle ropes. Designed with load absorbing capabilities to provide additional safety in the event a dynamic force is applied.
