What terminology do you use, load arrestor or load arrester?

We all seem to have different ways of saying and spelling key phrases like load arrestor versus load arrester, or fall arrestor versus fall arrester. In many cases, we notice those searching from overseas have different lingo than what we are used to in the United States. Sometimes engineers use a variation of terms that are different than a purchasing agent. None the less, here at Load Halt Industries, we look forward to helping you with all your fall limiter needs and offer an array of quality fall safety equipment to choose from. Do you recognize any of these key phrases in your day to day workplace safety topics?

Globestock Case Study

How to Double the Maximum Working Load (MWL) of a Load Arrestor by Including a Pulley

The conventional method of deploying a load arrestor is to connect the cable of the unit directly to the load (see figure 1 in Globestock link below). In this configuration, it is extremely important that the weight of the load must be less than or equal to the maximum working load (MWL) indicated on the label and manual of the unit.

By including an appropriate pulley, it is possible to double the MWL of a load arrestor (see figure 2 in Globestock link below). The obvious advantage is that the MWL is increased without having to invest in another load arrester. This arrangement also reduces the activation speed by half, and that reduces the stopping distance accordingly. The normal activation speed of G-Guards™ is approximately 2 feet per second, so including one pulley would create an activation speed of approximately 1 foot per second.

Annual Re-Certification of Load Arrestors

A key workplace safety topic is the use of a Load Arrestor and its great value to a company. A retractable fall arrester that is attached on a load and is suspended in the air above product or personnel, equals assurance of safety and accident prevention. With a properly mounted unit, the spring tensioned cable moves with the load it is attached to. In case of a fall, a properly functioning unit will lock up when the “speed to activate braking” is exceeded, (like when you put your seat belt on in the car, if you pull it too fast it locks up). If the brake has been permanently locked up or the unit is locking up more readily than normal, it may be damaged or need to be serviced / re-certified. A damaged cable can cause the braking system to lock as well.

Load Halt Offers A New G-Guard Load Arrester, With 2200 Lbs. Capacity!

Load Halt, Inc. is a separate subsidiary within the Greenco/Tri-Motion family of companies. In the past, the load capacity of G-Guard units jumped from 1100 lbs. to 3300 lbs. This meant that applications in the range of 2200 lbs. would have to use the larger 3300 lbs. capacity units. What really excites me about this new product option is now there is an intermediate solution for those applications, the new G-Guard with 2200 lbs. capacity!
