If you find yourself working at height regularly, either on
a scaffolding our on roofs, even in manholes, a fall arrest block is an
essential piece of equipment designed to help minimise the risk of injury, or
worse. If you are working at height without using a fall arrest block, you are
putting your own safety, and the safety of others at risk.
Fall arrest blocks comprises of a retractable life line
either made from synthetic rope or steel cable. The rope or cable retracts up onto
a reel, that is stored within a protected housing, often made out of anti-corrosive
metal, but in some cases, like our super lightweight fall arrest blocks or mini
blocks, they can be made from plastic.
Each of our fall arrest blocks have a different working
length, from 2.2 meters to 2 meters. The working load length is the measurement
from the bearing point in the housing, to the bearing point of the hook the
rope or cable is fully extended. In the event of a fall, the lifeline is pulled
out the housing until it reaches a critical velocity at which point the
breaking mechanism activates and the block decelerates to over a short
distance, protecting you from falling to the ground.

Arrest blocks, including mini fall arrest blocks, today we are going to run
