Built-In Anchorage Connector:
The Tie-Back Talon’s design eliminates the need for an anchorage connector like a tie-off adapter, fixed beam anchor or D-ring plate. With the use of the 5,000 lb gated snap hooks designed for tie-back use and three layers of abrasion resistant webbing, the end of the lifeline can be wrapped around anchorages and tie-back into itself. This eliminates the need for a separate anchor connector.
Reduced Fall Distances
Talon’s automatic, inertia activated brake will lock quickly stopping a falling worker within inches providing more protection at low heights. With the lifeline secured overhead, the total fall distance (free fall + deceleration) is limited to 42 inches or less. By reducing fall distance, the arresting forces are also minimized helping keep the worker safe and sound.
Talon quickly and easily attached directly to the back of the user’s harness by means of the built-in quick connect handle. For the twin leg version, a securing strap holds the housing in the correct position, preventing it from moving around during work activities. When not in use, the lifeline hook(s) can simply be attached to the front of the harness keeping them out of the way. Impact indicators on each leg of either the single version or twin version makes inspection quick and easy.
