Petzl ABSORBICA Compact Energy Absorber

The Petzl ABSORBICA is a Compact Energy Absorber for use in combination with a JANE Lanyard to make a fall arrest lanyard. Equipped with tear-webbing inside a pouch that opens on each end, the absorber is protected from abrasion, while allowing for regular inspection. In the case of a fall, tearing of the energy absorber webbing limits the impact force on the user. It has two options for installation on the harness, according to the frequency of manipulation.
