The Blocfor wire rope self-reb"acting lifeline provides freedom of movement to workers performing their job at various heights. The device automatically takes up the slack in the wire rope, keeping it out of the way while minimizing the free fall distance, should a fall occur. ln the event of a fall, the sudden jerk in the wire rope will activate the centrifugal locking mechanism, arresting the fall within 2 ft (0.6 m).

Very lightweight and easy to handle, the Blocfor features two carrying handles (RT50, RT75 and RT100) that facilitate the transportation and installation of the device. In the event of a fall, the drum is locked by two parts which engage in a ratchet wheel under the effect of the centrifugal force caused by the acceleration of the falling mass attached to the wire rope.


  • Housing

-Synthetic case wortcs with the frame to dissipate and absorb shock if dropped or struck by objects (T1T50)

  • Construction

-Isolated drum keeps all brake components contaminate-free.
-All parts are corrosion resistant.
-Mechanical parts are not dependent on the integrity of the housing.

  • Brake mechanism

-Twin stainless steel disc brakes with copper/alloy coil in the centre (all parts are anti-spark).
-Twin inertia and speed-activated brake pawls are designed to activate and engage at the same time. This design compensates against gravitational effects when the block is used horizontally. As a result, the braking system of the Blocfor offers faster reaction.

  • Design

-Features a carabiner-positioning washer.
-Rubber stop which is easy to take in hand and acts as a buffer when cable is accidentally released (high-speed recoil).
-Reinforced plastic rope guide is designed for high wear resistance, low cost and easy maintenance.
-Swivel self-locking snap hook has a visual fall indicator to allow inspection before each use.
