EN355 Compliant Twin Fall Arrest Lanyard for Extra Safety
A fall arrest shock absorbing lanyard is designed to connect a user's full-body harness to an anchorage when working at height. In the event of a fall, the lanyard will catch the fall and absorb the majority of the shock forces created, limiting the impact force to a maximum of 6kN.
In some cases, the user must disconnect the lanyard from one anchor point in order to connect to another, such as when climbing a ladder or traversing a structure. Advantage of a twin-Tail / double fall arrest lanyard:
The user can still maintain a constant attachment to an anchorage point.
It allows movement between anchor points without ever being disconnected from an anchor point

FAQs ABOUT FULL BODY HARNESS & DOUBLE LANYARD SHOCK ABSORBER :
What is a twin-tail/double lanyard?
A fall arrest double lanyard, or called twin-legged lanyard, has 2 tails and 1 energy absorber. It allows users to keep one leg attached to an anchor while they can disconnect the other leg to another anchor. This means that the user is constantly attached to the structure.
Which harness attachment points can be used with a double Fall Arrest Lanyard?
While the 2 tails of a double fall arrest lanyard are connected to anchorage points, the energy absorber is attached to a fall arrest point, marked with an "A". A full-body fall arrest harness normally includes a rear D-ring for fall arrest; some models also include a front fall arrest attachment point. Manufacturers should clearly state all applicable points for fall arrest
Can you connect two lanyards together?
Connecting 2 single lanyards to a harness attachment point can be dangerous. If each lanyard has a separate energy absorber, a fall on both absorbers at the same time (in ‘parallel’) will result in a doubling of forces applied to the user. To avoid this risk, a twin-tailed lanyard with one energy absorber is commonly used.
How does a shock-absorbing lanyard work?
The unique feature of this lanyard is its built-in shock pack. When a significant, sustained dynamic force is applied to the lanyard such as in a fall, the pack expands to absorb the kinetic energy that is created by a body in freefall. Without a shock absorber built into the fall arrest system, the forces created in freefall will severely injure the worker and more than likely result in a fatality.
