Checkmate FABX2HW-LE Heavyweight Leading Edge Self-Retracting Lifelines provide extreme confidence by utilising superior technology and craftsmanship in each unit to ensure that the user has maximum safety while working at height. The computer-calibrated and serialised digital braking technology is unparalleled, with each brake’s torque setting being individually set for optimum performance. The locking mechanism is designed to prevent nuisance lockups for increased productivity and automatically engages in the event of a fall while simultaneously activating an impact indicator to verify a fall has occurred.

The FABX2HW-LE housing is made of a tough polymer with recessed areas and smooth contours to protect labels and reduce size without compromising functionality. The unique shape of the lightweight thermoplastic housing provides an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio for ease of installation. This combination of high performance materials and a fully engineered design keeps the FABX2HW-LE both lightweight and durable.

The FABX2HW-LE has been tested and approved in a controlled facility for safe use over an edge with a 0.5mm radius or above, this however, does not negate the need for edge protection. Use over an edge should always be avoided where possible.
