May 13, 2016 – MSA Safety says its new Latchways Mini personal fall limiter is “a compact, lightweight self-retracting lanyard” that uses multiple spring radial energy-absorbing technology to eliminate the need for an external energy-absorber outside of the housing. According to MSA, this also makes it the smallest SRL (self-retracting lifeline) available.
The Latchways Mini PFL comes with clear polycarbonate casing and a fully rotating attachment point. The product offers fall arrest and restraint for users 130 to 400 lbs (60 to181 kg) including tools. It can also withstand temperatures ranging from -40° to 54°C, MSA says.
