Ropes and rope grabs are an important part of your fall protection system, each with separate yet integral roles in fall protection safety. Rope grabs are a hardware system designed to hold on fast to ropes firmly securing your safety harness to your anchor point. Fall protection ropes are specialized ropes made from specially blended synthetic materials designed for increased abrasion resistance and strength. Ropes also feature a snap hook for quick attachment to your rope grab.Fall protection rope and rope grabs for securing your fall safety harnesses
Ropes and rope grabs allow workers to perform their tasks while being safely tethered to their fall safety harness. Rope grabs are typically made from stainless steel to resist corrosion while possessing tensile strengths of up to 5,000 lbs. Ropes – also called fall protection ropes – may at first glance look like regular rope, but are actually made from a special polyethylene and polypropylene blend designed for increased strength. Ropes can also be made from galvanized wire and feature a locking snap hook made from forged steel. Despite being manufactured to exacting standards, it’s always a good idea to store your ropes and rope grabs in a dry place that’s free from corrosive or combustible materials.
