TOOL: The RPE Self Retracting Lanyard

Posted by Keren Warner on

RPE SRL is unique in a number of ways:  It is specially made for the ropes course industry so it does not require a fall arrest indicator (causing the unit to be sent for re-certification as soon as a single fall triggers it). It can take the rigor and abuse of an aerial park. With a minimum weight of 30lbs and maximum of 300 it can be used by younger children.  

The off-set housing entrance of the RPE SRL allows the cable to roll out smoothly without damaging the entrance bushing.  It is built to take the daily usage of aerial parks and last a whole season before re-certification.  

This lightweight 30 foot galvanized wire rope SRL has an aluminum and stainless steel outer casing with all stainless steel interior parts.
