A compact energy absorber for assembling a fall arrest system

The Petzl Absorbica is a compact energy absorber, for use in combination with a Petzl Jane-I or Jane-Y lanyard to make a complete fall arrest lanyard. Equipped with tear-webbing inside a pouch that opens on each end, the absorber is protected from abrasion, while allowing for regular inspection. It has two options for installation on the harness, according to the frequency of manipulation.

Item H-LAB22

Features

  • Designed for use in combination with a Petzl Jane-I or Jane-Y lanyard, to make a complete fall arrest lanyard with a maximum length of two meters.
  • Absorbs energy in case of a fall:
    • Tearing of the energy absorber webbing limits the impact force on the user.
    • Works with a user who weighs between 110 and 308 pounds or 50 and 140 kg (in compliance with maximum accepted fall distances).
    • Progressive tearing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users.
  • Minimal bulk: compact, to facilitate handling
  • Durable fabric pouch with opening system at each end, protects the energy absorber from abrasion or contaminants while allowing for regular inspection of the absorber.
  • Two options for installation on the harness, depending on use:
    • Frequent connection/disconnection: Using either a carabiner that is held in correct position by the Petzl STRING positioning accessory (included with the absorber), or a Petzl MICRO SWIVEL to avoid tangling.
    • Semi-permanent connection: Using either a Petzl RING OPEN gated ring whose circular shape ensures optimal positioning, or a Petzl SWIVEL OPEN to avoid tangling.

Size: 8.5 inches (22 cm)

This is the shock absorber ONLY. Pair this with the Petzl Jane-I or Jane-Y for a complete lanyard.
