Checkmate Safety Launch the Ultimate Fall Arrest Block

Checkmate Safety’s latest innovation in height safety equipment, the Xcalibre 18 fall arrest block, is now available.

The result of two years of exhaustive research, testing and refinement, Xcalibre 18 boasts patented safety features to set it apart from the competition. It is super lightweight but with extreme durability and has the same sleek contemporary design as the Xcalibre 3W. A steel chassis and independent brake pawls to give additional peace of mind and the brake unit itself is sealed to prevent water ingress thus making Xcalibre 18 especially suitable for offshore markets.

In addition, a unique brush clean system minimises any water or debris from getting into the device, improving durability and performance and the housing has side slots for either carry handle or shoulder strap. The lifeline is available in wire rope, fibre rope made with Dyneema® or webbing from the same modular unit.

Checkmate Safety’s Managing Partner Oliver Auston said “Xcalibre 18 is the latest in a line of innovative Checkmate products which continue to lead the market and set the highest standards for fall arrest and height safety.”
