Connecting Devices

Connecting Devices The second component of a personal fall arrest system is the Connecting Device. This may be a shock-absorbing lanyard, tie-back lanyard, retractable lifeline, rope grab and vertical lifeline, or similar device used to connect the body wear to the anchorage/anchorage connector.

A connecting device should be selected based on the work to be performed and the work environment. In addition, it is critical to consider potential fall distance when determining the type of connecting device to be used.

Miller manufactures a wide range of innovative, user-friendly connecting devices for every application.
