Guardian announces lifeline upgrades


Global height safety specialist Guardian recently announced its upgraded line of Self-Retracting Lifelines (SRLs) at the World of Concrete show in January. Improvements to the line include more robust shock packs to withstand greater fall forces, thicker cables, and redesigned braking systems — all of which combine to provide greater dynamic strength. The enhanced range also features an updated design that brings the SRLs together under a unified look.

“Testament to our belief that safe should be simple is the dynamic new look that spans our entire SRL family,” said Judd Perner, product and engineering director. “We look forward to rolling out our new Guardian industrial design across our broader height safety range over the coming months.”

“As the industry leaders in SRLs, we think it’s our job to lead the way — continually challenging ourselves to set new benchmarks in robust safety, durability and useability,” said Scott Lapier, product manager. “We have treated this year’s introduction of a new ANSI standard as an opportunity to advance our entire SRL family. Our growing new product development team has explored every aspect of the user experience — from design and performance, to ergonomics and use to deliver a range that is even safer, stronger, and simpler to use.”

Guardian is showcasing the new range in advance of the August 2023 effective date for the ANSI Z359.14-2021 SRL standard. Each product in the enhanced range also features a digitally enabled QR code on the housing label, which provides instant access to manuals, declarations of conformity, technical data sheets and other product information.
