The test includes fitting a 100KG solid torso dummy into the harness attached to a 2-meter rope. The dummy is then released over 4 meters. The test is carried out twice on each harness attachment, once from a head up position and another time from a head-down position. The harness passes the and becomes certified to EN 361 when the dummy is held in a position not exceeding 50 degrees form the upright position. In short, the wearer can absolutely rely on the performance and safety of this harness!
Features of the Shock-absorbing single lanyard:
This lanyard is 180 cm in total, comprised of a 120cm rope, a tear open energy absorber to cushion a fall, and a snap hook and scaffold hook for attachment. The lanyard is certified to the following standards:
- EN 354 – Tests the performance of five key attributes for the lanyard:
- Conditions: tests conducted to measure the robustness of the lanyard at various temperatures and moisture levels
- Slippage: Tests conducted to measure the amount the lanyard stretched or slips in length after being placed under constant strength
- Static strength: Has to withstand 22kN which is 2.5 times the strength requirement to allow for any weakening of the rope due to use
- Dynamic: Measures the performance and strength of the lanyard when a 100KG weight is dropped from a 2 meters height and dropped 4 meters
- Corrosion: Measures the corrosion of the metal component when exposed to salt spray for a 48 hours period.
- EN 364 – Test the performance of the connectors for strength and functionality of the gate locking system
- EN 355 – Measures the performance of the energy absorber:
- Dynamic: Measures the performance and strength of the shock absorber when subjected to a weighted drop test using a solid mass of 100KG. The shock absorber is required to deploy but no beyond a max length of 1.75 meters.
- Static Strength: Subjected to 15kN tensile force of at least 3 minutes. This is to ensure the breaking strength of the product is in excess of the force specified by the standard.
- Corrosion: Measures the resistance to environmental corrosion of the metal component when exposed to saltwater mist for up to a 48 hours period.
