Title
(EN) UNIVERSAL ATTACHMENT LINK
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE FIXATION UNIVERSEL
Abstract
(EN)
An attachment link (10) is disclosed which is used for attaching a load (not shown) to an elongate element such as a safety line (50). The link (10) is designed to be universally applicable to a wide variety of safety systems such as those in which an elongate safety element is supported on a series of rotary brackets that allow the passage of an attached load without detachment from the elongate element. The attachment link (10) comprises a substantially C-shaped straddling portion (20) having a pair of legs (30) depending therefrom. Each of the legs (30) is provided at its end remote from the straddling portion (20) with connecting means (40) adapted for engagement by a karabiner/hook. The legs (30) may be deformable to assist with attenuation of sudden loads. The straddling portion may be provided with friction reducing means to minimise the effects of friction between the elongate member and the attached load.
(FR)
On décrit un dispositif de fixation (10) servant à fixer une charge (non illustrée) à un élément allongé tel qu'un câble de sécurité (50). Ce dispositif (10) est conçu pour une utilisation universelle avec une grande variété de systèmes de sécurité tels que ceux où un élément allongé de sécurité prend appui sur une série de supports rotatifs qui permettent le passage d'une charge fixée sur cet élément sans l'en détacher. Ce dispositif de fixation (10) comprend une partie de chevauchement (20), sensiblement en forme de C, dotée de deux branches (30) descendantes. Chacune des branches (30) est dotée, à son extrémité opposée à la partie de chevauchement (20), d'un moyen de connexion (40) conçu pour s'accoupler à un mousqueton ou un crochet. Ces branches (30) peuvent être déformables pour amortir des secousses. La partie de chevauchement peut être dotée d'un réducteur de friction qui minimise les effets de la friction survenant entre l'élément allongé et la charge fixée.
