Lineman safety: Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA® and PROTECTA® brands of fall protection equipment, is pleased to introduce the Nano-Lokedge, the first personal self-retracting lifeline (SRL) engineered for both foot level tie-off and sharp edge applications. While traditional general purpose products anchored at foot level and used in sharp edge environments may increase the risk of injury and create a false sense of security at height, the Nano-Lok edge is designed specifically for use in sharp edge applications and retracts its unused lifeline so workers can anchor at their feet and move freely and with confidence at height. The Nano-Lok edge includes an 8-foot working length, ergonomic design, and is available in single or twin 100 percent tie-off units.

The Nano-Lok edge is the only personal SRL on the market to pass the most stringent leading edge standard set by ANSI Z359.14. Its tough lifeline material, patent pending energy absorber, and durable harness connector work together to absorb and limit the arresting forces in the event of a fall, and to mitigate the effect of a sharp edge on the lifeline even under harsh conditions.

“When workers anchor at their feet with traditional equipment that’s not specifically designed for foot level tie-off, they’re putting themselves at risk,” said Jeff Martin, hard goods senior product manager at Capital Safety. “The Nano-Lok edge is specifically designed for leading edge work and foot level tie-off situations, so workers at height can do their job safely and with confidence.”

The Nano-Lok edge personal SRL includes an integrated backpack style energy absorber, tough and flexible galvanized cable lifeline, various hook options, an easy-to-install connector, and it can be safely used in fall clearance environments as low as 16 feet.
