Ultra-Safe – retractables, in accordance with DIN EN 360, are produced for maximum durability using outstanding technology for the demanding conditions of the workplace. All the components important to the devices functionality are made from rustproof material, aluminum or stainless steel and shockproof plastic. This sturdy method of construction ensures that Ultra-Safe retractables are always reliable in use and especially low-maintenance.
The Ultra-Safe retractable is similar to a car safety belt in the way it functions. A restoring spring keeps the rope or polyamide strap, depending on the model, taught allowing it to respond immediately in the event of a fall without a slack rope.
If the working speed (approx. 4.5 feet/sec.) is exceeded, the brake pawls, which activate the brake system, lock into place as a result of centrifugal forces. The fall absorption required for the retractables is attained via a new type of disk brake system which can only be set from the inside.
