A look into why you should use fall arrest blocks when working at height

Phakmisa Industries is at the forefront of providing quality-driven safety equipment that can be utilised in a multitude of industries and applications. We understand the complexities of labour intensive tasks, which are why we are specialists in supplying comprehensive ranges of safety equipment, rigging equipment, fall protection systems as well as lifelines.


Fall arrest blocks can be categorised into fall protection systems available from Phakmisa Industries. In the event that the fall of the braking mechanism malfunctions, the drum that holds the rope or webbing mechanism that is attached to the users harness is engaged and arrests the fall.

The contexts of using the safety harnesses and fall arrest blocks are predominantly used in unique applications for construction, wind energy, traffic, and sewage as well as telecom installations.  The self-retracting fall arrest blocks are specifically designed with vertical applications and horizontally incline applications such a flat roof with a 0.5mm radius.

Recommended components of the fall arrest blocks includes arresters with auto controlled descent, a lifeline length of approximately 9 metres and aluminium double action hooks to avoid cable twisting on the equipment.

At Phakmisa Industries, we provide and distribute safety lanyards with the option of shock absorbing components. This ultimately ensures that the positions are available for restraint from different heights. Safety harnesses are also vital for the lifting capacities of elevations with unreachable components with minimal stability.
