Retractable Webbing Fall Arrester - Nanook
This retractable fall arrester is equipped with a thick webbing kept in tension. It acts as a connecting device between a full-body harness and an anchorage, shown in the ABC fall protection diagram. It follows the movements of a user who doesn't have to adjust the length.
The fall arrester unrolls as they go further away, and retracts as they go back. In a fall, it blocks and stops automatically. The device is usually used for these professions: works on a facade, on the terrace, on scaffolding, on an aerial lift, and maintenance.

FAQs about Fall Arrest
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF 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, only12.5 feetof fall distance clearance is required when using a retractable fall arrester while17.5 feetis required when using a 6-foot lanyard.
Also, it brings great freedom of movements. Many fall protection professionals therefore tend to recommend retractable fall arrester over lanyards.
This system, a form of fall protection, allows workers to have maximum freedom of movement but also allows them to reach the point where a fall may occur, such as the edge of a roof. When it happens, the fall arrest system stops a person already falling from colliding with the ground, structure, or any other obstacle during a free fall and limits the impact force on the worker during fall arrest. In order to achieve the result, a collection of safety equipment conforming to the required standards, used in conjunction with each other to ensure the safety of a worker.
OSHA: A fall arrest system does not prevent a fall, but instead it is designed to catch the worker with minimal injury. The components of a fall arrest system are as follows: - Connecting means (e.g., snap hooks) - Shock-absorbing lanyard, self-retracting lanyards and lifelines - Full body harness - Anchor point (e.g., fixed railing, ship's mast)
