MIO® Anti-Panic Rope Grabs
Rope Grabs provide fall protection for workers who are ascending or descending a vertical lifeline. If a fall occurs, the rope grab will automatically lock onto the safety line and limit free fall while absorbing much of the generated forces. Main problem of the “regular” rope grab is that in a panic situation during the fall, worker may grip the rope grab and hold the lever in the open position. The grab will not activate and will not stop the fall.
MIO® Anti-Panic Rope Grabs (Models: RGAP) will arrest the fall even if worker is holding the lock lever in an open position.
Meets OSHA, ANSI Z359.1-07, A10-32, Z359.15-2014, IWCA I-14.
