Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR LOWERING A USER FROM AN ELEVATED POSITION
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ POUR ABAISSER UN UTILISATEUR À PARTIR D'UNE POSITION ÉLEVÉE
Abstract
(EN)
A system for lowering a user from an elevated position is described. The system includes a fall-arresting device operable to arrest a fall of a user attached to the fall-arresting device, a harness for wearing by the user, and a separable connector for attaching the harness to the fall-arresting device. The separable connector is configured to separate in response to a minimum load of about 0.66 kN acting on the separable connector and thereby disconnect the harness from the fall-arresting device.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un système permettant d'abaisser un utilisateur à partir d'une position élevée. Le système comprend un dispositif d'arrêt de chute utilisable pour arrêter une chute d'un utilisateur fixé au dispositif d'arrêt de chute, un harnais porté par l'utilisateur, et un connecteur séparable pour fixer le harnais au dispositif d'arrêt de chute. Le connecteur séparable est configuré pour se séparer en réponse à une charge minimale d'environ 0,66 kN agissant sur le connecteur séparable et déconnecter ainsi le harnais du dispositif d'arrêt de chute.
