Title (EN) A DEVICE FOR STOPPING A FALL DURING CLIMBING OR DESCENDING ALONG A ROPE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ARRÊT DE CHUTE PENDANT LA MONTÉE OU DESCENTE LE LONG D'UNE CORDE
Abstract:
(EN) A fall arrest device comprises two clamp portions 5, 7 which are hingedly connected to two connecting arms 9, 11 which are hingedly connected to a coupling element 13 to which a carabiner can be affixed. The fall arrest device further includes a pawl 25 which is present pivotable around the coupling element. The brake operation principle is based on the two clamp portions which in the event of a fall are pushed towards each other as a result of the geometry of the device. In neutral position the distance between the two clamp portions will be smaller than the diameter of the cable. To increase the distance for lodging the cable between the two clamp portions, the coupling element to which the carabiner is affixed is to be lifted. The pawl is primarily intended to act as a lock. This is arranged in such manner so as to prevent the mechanism from clicking open when the user performs an ascending action.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif anti-chute qui comprend deux parties de serrage (5, 7) qui sont reliées de manière articulée à deux bras de liaison (9, 11) qui sont reliés de manière articulée à un élément d'accouplement (13) auquel un mousqueton peut être fixé. Le dispositif anti-chute comprend également un cliquet (25) qui est présent de manière pivotante autour de l'élément d'accouplement. Le principe de fonctionnement de frein est basé sur les deux parties de serrage qui, en cas de chute, sont poussées l'une vers l'autre du fait de la géométrie du dispositif. En position neutre, la distance entre les deux parties de serrage est inférieure au diamètre du câble. Pour augmenter la distance pour loger le câble entre les deux parties de serrage, l'élément d'accouplement auquel est fixé le mousqueton doit être levé. Le cliquet est principalement destiné à servir de serrure. Le dispositif est agencé de façon à empêcher le mécanisme de s'ouvrir lorsque l'utilisateur réalise une action de montée.
