Capital Safety has introduced an important addition to its widely used Nano-Lok product line – the DBI-SALA Nano-Lok Arc Flash Self-Retracting Lifeline (SRL). The first-of-its-kind lifeline provides a safe and reliable fall protection connection for all utilities and electric markets, as well as welding, cutting, and torching applications.
The Nano-Lok Arc Flash is extremely versatile, offering users 16 standard configurations to meet most any arc flash or hot work need, and two unique web leg configurations designed for bucket truck and aerial-lift applications. It has an electric arc performance of 40 cal/cm2 and has been rigorously tested to meet the ASTM F887-11 arc flash standard, as well as ANSI Z359.14 and all applicable OSHA requirements.
“Those working in the utilities industry face unique safety issues and complex equipment needs. We believe all workers at height should be protected, so we designed the Nano-Lok Arc Flash to meet those needs without worry,” said Jeff Martin, hard goods senior product manager at Capital Safety. “The new Arc Flash lifeline meets the same high quality standards as the original model, but with the added arc-flash protection our customers are looking for.”
The Nano-Lok Arc Flash SRL is made of 100% Kevlar to offer complete spark and fire resistance, while the NanoSphere coating provides abrasion resistance and a “self-cleaning” effect. At only 1.9 lb, it is the smallest and most compact lifeline on the market, yet can support workers weighing up to 420 lb.
Other Nano-Lok Arc Flash features include a:
• Quick-connect anchorage connector so it attaches directly to the back of most harnesses without requiring a separate carabiner.
• Swiveling anchorage loop to limit lifeline twisting for smoother operation.
• Automatic, quick-activating arrestor that reduces fall distances to inches with an average arresting force of 900 lb.
• Six-foot arc flash rated retractable lifeline to reduce dragging, snagging, and trip falls, and
• 3,600 lb gate hooks to reduce chances of accidental disengagement.
