The retractable fall arrester REMUS is equipped with a 17mm webbing kept in tension. Acting as a connecting device between a full-body harness and an anchorage in a fall arrest system, it follows the movements of a user.
Users don’t have to adjust the length of their connection. The fall arrester unrolls as they go further away, and retracts as they go back. It blocks and stops automatically when the user falls.
FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS:
WHAT IS A RETRACTABLE FALL ARRESTER?
In the event of a fall, the webbing stored on a reel within a protective housing of a fall arrester is rapidly pulled out of the housing. The braking mechanism is then engaged and arrests the fall, protecting you from falling to the ground when working at height.
The device is usually used for these professions: works on a facade, on the terrace, on scaffolding, on an aerial lift, and maintenance.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF A RETRACTABLE FALL ARRESTER?
The retractable fall arresters are ideal for work of low-rise because the braking mechanism is almost instantaneous, reducing the required fall distance clearance. Take an example of a 6-foot tall worker, only 12.5 feet of fall distance clearance is required when using a retractable fall arrester while 17.5 feet is required when using a 6-foot lanyard.
Also, it brings great freedom of movement. Many fall protection professionals therefore tend to recommend retractable fall arresters over lanyards.

Fall arrest is the form of fall protection that involves the safe stopping of a person already falling. According to OSHA,
