Karam Sharp Edge Tested Karam Retractable Block

The ideal position of a Retractable Block when used as a part of Personal Fall Arrest System, is directly overhead, or to an anchor point that is placed above the level of the Dorsal D-Ring of the user’s harness. However, while working on rooftops, beams, etc, the blocks may be required to be anchored horizontally. Not all blocks can be anchored at this level.


KARAM Sharp Edge tested Blocks can be used in horizontal condition, and in such conditions where the worker is exposed to a sharp edge hazard. The integrated energy absorber pack helps to reduce the impact of forces of the cable, as it comes in contact with the sharp edge. Each Block in this range is constructed in such a way that if subjected to contact with a sharp edge in the event of a fall from a roof/terrace etc, the retracted lanyard remains intact, while arresting the fall immediately. These blocks are equipped with an external energy absorber (with protective cover) which reduces the dynamic load impact felt on the user in the event of a fall, to less than 6kN even when the lifeline is fully drawn.

Certified for the vertical usage as per EN 360:2002 and Horizontal usage as per VG11 RFU # 11.060.

This KARAM range of Sharp Edge tested Retractable Fall Arrester Blocks comes in both GI Wire Rope and in Webbing.
