Webbing & Shaft
One piece shaft supports the Dyneema & Polyester webbing which has a minimum breaking load of 15kN.
PC/ABS Housings with Grips
High strength housings give protection to the mechanical assembly and include TPE grips to both sides.
The shock pouch reduces peak shock loads to less than 6kN and extends to varying amounts depending on the fall conditions.
A simple coupler connects two FAB3W’s which can be mounted on the rear "D" of a full body harness giving the user two attachment points for greater safety in the workplace.
Fall Indicating Swivel Hook
The swivel hook includes a fall indicator, which clearly shows if the device has been subjected to a shock load.
