A permanent cable HLL system

The term "Absorbinator" refers to the in-line shock absorbing component of this cable HLL system. It helps redirect forces away from the line and, in turn, the user. Absorbinator Systems are highly modular and can be configured to mount on both horizontal and vertical surfaces, and are compatible with a large range of anchorage connectors. This HLL system can support up to two workers in Fall Arrest applications, and is ideal for providing fall protection coverage over a large work area.
