CAPITAL Safety has launched its new DBI-SALA Rope-Safe rope grab, said to be the first of its kind in delivering advanced protection for workers at height.

Coming from Capital’s Rollgliss Technical Rescue range, the Rope-Safe rope grab has been designed and certified to multiple world standards for use as a secondary back up device for fall arrest on kernmantle rope.

“It takes rope grabs to the next level, providing the versatility of an automatic rope grab that is easily switchable to a towable manual grab,” Capital said.

Capital said the rope grab had been designed to meet the toughest conditions, rated as a fall arrester for a single user or a two person rescue up to 200 kilograms.

“When it comes to versatility, strength and ease of use our Rope-Safe rope grab is packed with features,” Rollgliss Technical Rescue sales manager Martyn Gilbert said.

“The new rope grab offers outstanding performance and protection on kernmantle rope lifelines to meet the toughest of demands.”

The rope grab is available in three shock-absorbing kernmantle rope lanyard connection configurations, either 300mm, 600mm, or 900mm.

“This provides a system that is designed and tested for maximum convenience and safety of the worker,” Capital said.
