FABX Large Recovery - Self-Retracting Lifeline

The FABX-LR Large Recovery Self-Retracting Lifeline offers all the same benefits as the standard FABX2, lightweight handling, excellent serviceability and exceptional performance with the addition of an increased lifeline capacity and a rewind/rescue mechanism which can be engaged to raise and/or lower a worker in the event of a fall. The FABX2-R is available with galvanised or stainless steel cable, or Dyneema® fibre rope in lengths up to 40m (130ft).

Checkmate FABX-LR Large Recovery 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-LR 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-LR both lightweight and durable.

The FABX-LR functions as a standard SRL, but in the event of a fall, the rewind/rescue mechanism can be engaged to raise and/or lower a fallen worker.
