EN354 & EN355 Compliant Twin Fall Arrest Lanyard with Scaffold Hooks
What is a fall arrest lanyard? In a fall arrest system, one end of the lanyard connects the body harness' s fall arrest D-ring while the other end attaches a secure anchorage. In a fall, the lanyard with a shock pack will catch the fallen user and absorb the majority of the shock forces created. The forces absorbed by the user will never be above 6Kn.
A double/Twin-Tail fall arrest lanyard allows users to maintain a constant attachment to an anchorage point when they have to disconnect the lanyard from one anchor point in order to connect to another, such as when climbing a ladder or traversing a structure.

FAQs About FULL-BODY HARNESS & DOUBLE LANYARD SHOCK ABSORBER :
What is a 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.
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 a shock-absorbing lanyard is that it has a 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.
