Automatic Fall Arrest Block
Automatic fall arrest blocks could be compared to the seatbelt of a car. The life line is coiled inside high quality durable housing where it can extend and retract. This means the line is under constant tension ensuring that there is no slack thus reducing the risks of trip or slip hazards. In the event of a fall the arrest block will lock and stop your fall after a short distance. Designed to be used with all Portwest harnesses and connectors.
