- During fall arrest your body needs a way to reduce the amount of force, and that happens through a shock absorber.
- Shock absorber can be added to your personal fall protection system as an extension lanyard, and as part of a single or double lanyard.
- A non-shock absorbing lanyard is only good for restraint. A lanyard needs a shock absorber when it will be used for fall arrest. The shock absorber helps absorb the kinetic energy that is created by a body in freefall.
- The maximum weight limit for a standard shock absorbing lanyard is 310lbs.
