Lanyards are engineered products, and the critical connection component between the body harness and the anchor. They are sometimes referred to as connectors.
PeakWorks lanyards are designed and tested to comply to strict CSA and ANSI standards.
There is a wide variety of lanyards to suit a wide range of applications.
There are two common types of lanyards: Fall Restraint and Fall Arrest.
Lanyards for fall arrest applications are designed using two types of shock absorbing technology: POY (Partially Oriented Yarn) and SP (Shock Pack).
The shock absorbing action of these lanyards limits and reduces the force of a fall on the worker, significantly reducing injury to the body.
SP (Shock Pack) lanyards are comprised of “tear webbing” which is woven in a manner that allows the webbing to tear when it has a load applied to it. This tearing absorbs a significant amount of downward force under load, reducing injury. This tear webbing is folded and shrink-wrapped into a compact 1 x 2 x 6″ (2.5 x 5 x 15 cm) pack that is sewn into the lanyard next to the body connector.
Made with a superior grade, heavy-duty 1-3/4″ (45 mm) or 1″ (25 mm) polyester webbing for maximum strength or 1/4″ (6 mm) galvanized plastic coated cable, with tear webbing shock absorber
A tear-away absorber limits the arrest force to a maximum of 900 Ibs (4 kN) for the E4 category or 1,300 lbs (6 kN) for the E6 category
PeakWorks SP lanyards are available in two categories: E4 (worker weight of 100 to 254 lbs [45 to 115 kg]) and E6 (worker weight of 200 to 386 lbs [90 to 175 kg])
