Yates 827-12 Adjustable Nylon Tower/ Ladder Lanyard
Single leg lanyard is made from heavy-duty 1 inch, 9800 lbf. webbing, adjustable from 4.5-6-foot length. Available with aluminum or steel ladder hooks. This allows the worker to safely connect at foot level. Ideal for transmission tower and wind turbine workers.
Yates Gear has developed “State-of-the-art” technology in shock absorbing tear tapes.
Past generation tear tapes all required a structural backup webbing following the tear tapes to accomplish the 22kN (5,000 lbf) ANSI required ultimate strength. YATES latest technology has incorporated Dyneema® fibers into the core of the tear tape webbing so that a backup webbing is no longer required. This results in a loss of bulk in the shock pack of approximately 50%.
The Standard 6-foot lanyards that Yates is now producing with this new Dyneema® fiber tear tape is quite unique. It passes both 6 ft Free Fall (Factor 1) and 12 Ft Free Fall (Factor 2) criteria. The 6/12 tear tapes start activation at 900 lbf. average activation, then halfway through the deployment distance it ramps up to 1,350 lbf for a maximum deployment distance of 60″. We have replaced the steel D-Ring connector between the shock pack and lanyard legs with a forged 2″ aluminum O ring. The new tear tape system will reduce total lanyard weight by slightly over one half of a pound.
