Capital Safety’s Ultra-Lok™ RSQ Self Retracting Lifeline (SRL) with Rescue is a first-of-its-kind dual-mode SRL, providing fall arrest and rescue/descent in one product. The Ultra-Lok RSQ SRL allows the user to select either the traditional “fall arrest” mode or a “rescue/descent” mode. If a fall event occurs while in the rescue/descent mode, a speed-sensing brake automatically stops the fall, reducing the forces exerted on the user to safe levels of 900 pounds or less, then automatically lowers the worker safely to the ground or next level. This feature is ideal for those who work alone or in remote locations.
If a fall event occurs while in fall arrest mode, the speed-sensing brake arrests the fall. A co-worker can then conduct an assisted rescue by manually switching the selector to the rescue/descent mode, which will lower the fallen worker at a controlled speed to the ground or next level.
The Ultra-Lok RSQ SRL incorporates a 50-foot lifeline and features an anti-ratcheting brake system that prevents the device from releasing in a post-fall rebound while connected to a flexible mount such as a horizontal lifeline. It also prevents “nuisance locking,” in which the device activates during normal movement. The Ultra-Lok RSQ SRL supports a capacity of 310 pounds, and meets all applicable industry standards, including OSHA and ANSI Z359.1 and A10.32.
