Title (EN) FALL-ARREST SYSTEMS
(FR) SYSTEMES D'ARRET DE CHUTE
Abstract:
(EN) A personnel fall-arrest system comprising a flexible safety track (1) which is anchored in spaced relation to a fixture (2) by track anchors (4), and a coupling component (7) for connecting a worker's safety harness to said track via a safety line (8), said component (7) being freely displaceable along said track, is characterised in that each of the track anchors (4) is formed so that it becomes permanently deformed if subjected to heavy loading due to a fall, thereby signalling that the system requires to be checked and re-certified before further use.
(FR) Un système d'arrêt de chute de personnel au travail comprend un rail de sécurité (1) qui est assujetti, au moyen d'éléments d'ancrage (4) de rail, à un support fixe (2) et de manière espacée par rapport à celui-ci, et un élément d'accouplement (7) servant à relier un harnais de sécurité de travailleur audit rail par l'intermédiaire d'un câble de sécurité (8), ledit élément de sécurité (7) demeurant librement mobile le long dudit rail. Le système se caractérise en ce que chacun des éléments d'ancrage (4) est agencé de manière à se déformer irrémédiablement s'il est soumis à une charge lourde due à une chute. indiquant ainsi que le système doit être vérifié et certifié à nouveau avant la prochaine utilisation.
