FABX Large - Self-Retracting Lifeline

The FABX-L Large Leading Edge Self-Retracting Lifeline offers all the same benefits as the standard FABX SRL, lightweight handling, excellent serviceability and exceptional performance with the addition of an increased lifeline capacity. The FABX-L is available with galvanised or stainless steel cable, or Dyneema® fibre rope/ webbing in lengths up to 40m (130ft).

The FABX-L Large Leading Edge Self-Retracting Lifelines (SRLs) 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 FABX-L 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 FABX-L both lightweight and durable.

Independent Brake Pawls

The two Pawls work independently of one another, this ensures a “fail safe” capability if one should stop working.


Load Bearing Steel Chassis

The internal hot rolled steel chassis provides a structural metallic core beneath the external protective housing.



The durable PC/ABS housing provides protection to the mechanical assembly inside and also enable the FABX range to be among the lightest in their class.


Dual Spring Assembly

Dual springs ensure reliable recoil and even distribution of power.


Sealed Brake Module

The Brake Module is sealed by the use of “O” rings which stops water or dust ingress affecting the brakes efficiency.


Load Indicator Hook

The swivel hook includes a fall indicator, which clearly shows if the device has been subjected to a shock load.
