LINQ lanyards are critical pieces of personal protection equipment (PPE) for working safely at heights as the connection between the harness and an anchorage, designed to absorb energy in the event of a fall.
Through extensive research and development on site, as well as engineering and quality control implementation, LINQ has developed a lanyard range suitable for a wide range of worker’s body types. Based on worker feedback and site observation, the LINQ lanyard range restricts energy absorption to significantly less than 6kN in the event of a fall for all workers (even plus-sized ones) up to 160kg.
Quality materials have been used to engineer the LINQ lanyard range, ensuring their strength in the event of a fall. These include:
- An Extended Length Energy Absorber designed to protect a worker of up to 160kg (including tools and equipment).
- Drop forged lanyard hardware.
- Stitching patterns are sewn by computer controlled bar tacking machinery for precision using UV resistant high tenacity polyester yarn with 100 newton (10kg) breaking strength.
- Unique THETA stitch pattern has over 423 stitches resulting in a seam that matches the lanyard’s webbing strength of 3.3t.
As with the LINQ harness range, LINQ lanyards are third party audited by SAI Global to AS/NZS1891.1 Standards criteria and have been issued with the prestigious “5 ticks” Certification approval, clearly visible on all LINQ lanyard labels.
