New Fall Protection Lanyards are Safe for Steel and Concrete Structures

Werner has added a new lineup of 6’ lanyards tested and approved for leading edge use over steel beams, B-Deck, and precast concrete, the primary materials used in the largest building projects.

“These new lanyards really show how safety is in our DNA,” said Eric Miller, director of product management at Werner. “As a team, we’re dedicated to fall protection, which includes post-fall safety. We already have an excellent selection of lanyards that provide advanced features, styles and attributes, but leading edge workers on steel and concrete structures have unique safety needs. We use aircraft-grade steel cables that can stand strong against other tough materials, and our innovative DeCoil technology decreases impact at the end of a fall. Those factors ensure that our leading edge fall protection lanyards perform when it matters most.”

High Performance and Safe Access at Height

Building on Werner’s legacy of leadership in fall protection, these lanyards have been tested and approved for leading edge use over steel beam, B-Deck and precast concrete. Available in four models, each lanyard is made from ¼-inch 7x19 vinyl-coated galvanized aircraft grade steel cable for strength and durability. They are rated for a 12-ft. freefall for users up to 310 lbs. and for a 6-ft. freefall for users up to 400 lbs.

The lanyards use Werner’s innovative DeCoil technology in which a DCELL shock pack reduces the fall arrest force. The DCELL reduces the risk of serious injury that could be caused by falling to the end of a static cable. It absorbs some of the force of the fall rather than transferring all of it to the user’s body.

Also, each new leading edge lanyard connects to the user’s harness with a snap hook that audibly signals when the hook is fastened securely.

The new 6-ft. lanyards are available in four configurations:

  • Single leg with snap hook anchorage connector
  • Twin leg with snap hook anchorage connector
  • Single leg with rebar hook anchorage connector
  • Twin leg with rebar hook anchorage connector

Werner’s new leading edge fall protection lanyards are available nationally.
