Restraint Twisted Rope Lanyards

6th April 2013

The Range of KARAM Restraint Twisted Rope Lanyards are made of polyamide twisted rope with a diameter of 12mm. The spliced end of the lanyard is protected with a strong transparent covering sleeve which protects the splicing and enables the easy inspection of the splicing prior to use. The loops at the end of each lanyard are protected by an abrasion resistant thimble which prevents the rope from being damaged by contact with the connector. The lanyard's rope has a coloured tracer strand. This strand looses colour over time, which indicates when the lanyard is unfit for further use.

Depending upon your specific fall protection and fall arrest requirements, different types of lanyards are required:

Work Positioning Lanyards: - used for work positioning

Restraint Lanyards: - used for restraint
