Load Arrestors for Suspended Equipment
Fall Protection Equipment & Load Arrestors work on the principle of
inertia. Inertia is the same method used in
retracting car seat
belt systems to sense rapid movement and lock on to
arrest the movement.
Arrestors are used as a back-up
device to lifting devices, hoists or in any other
situation where a suspended load, tool, fixture or other
heavy object could potentially fall and injure workers
or damage valuable equipment or machinery.
arrestor's spring tensioned cable is connected to the
load. The device senses a fall when the connected
object's downward movement speed exceeds the lock-on
inertia rate and the Load Halt arrests the fall.
Models are available for load capacities of up to 3,300
applications include manufacturing environments
involving overhead suspended tools, jigs, fixtures, rail
mounted fastening systems, hoists, winches, load and
tool balancers, overhead moveable lighting, theater
hoists and other suspended objects that could fall if
the primary suspension fails.
fall arrest devices are used as personnel safety devices
for working at heights wherever someone is exposed to
the risk of free falling from workstations in mines,
mills, smelters, and construction trades such as
performing roofing, steelwork, rigging, derrick or tower
climbing, demolition work, electrical equipment
installation, roof mounted solar installations and
similar jobs done where a fall might occur.
is also used for work on building faces such as window
washing, painting or inspection along the sides of ocean
vessels, billboard work, aircraft maintenance or
inspection and other jobs performed at hazardous
Load Halt G-Saver II
includes an internal gear mechanism with ratchet handle
to allow a rescuer to raise a fallen or unconscious user
to safety, such as workers in enclosed tanks or vessels,
storm sewers or unconscious as the result of a fall.
fall protection arrestors will decelerate and stop a
fall within approximately 2.0-ft (0.6 m). Models
containing from 23 feet to 112 feet of 3/16" (5mm)
diameter retractable steel cable are available.
Load Halt meets the requirements of OSHA's Fall
Protection Systems Criteria per CFR 29 1926.502.
