Rope Length & Max Capacity
  • Guard load arrestors are heavy-duty fall arrest blocks for protecting equipment that is suspended at height.
  • Guard load arrestors are retractable, tensioned cable safety devices for the protection of equipment, machinery, high value and sensitive loads that is suspended at height. They protect both static and dynamic/moving loads at height and help minimise associated hazards to the area below.
  • Load arrestors provide a secondary safety back-up for overhead loads, used in conjunction with a primary lifting device or support, such as a hoist or fixed anchorage. If the primary support fails, the load arrestor will automatically stop the load from falling, thereby preventing damage to the load and, more importantly, protecting people below.
  • Guard load arrestors have a high-strength retractable rope that extracts and retracts, following the movement of the load. This means the Guards can be fitted to equipment that needs to be moved (dynamic loads), as well as to non-moving (static) loads
  • Throughout the industry, riggers and installers are using UK-made Guard load arrestors as load securing devices for safeguarding lighting and sound equipment that is suspended above people. They are being increasingly utilised under EN 17206:2020 as an effective protective measure and safeguard.
  • If your primary load bearing equipment fails, the Guard load arrestor will automatically stop the load from falling, thereby preventing damage to the equipment and, more importantly, protecting the audience/performers below.

Guard load arrestors are used extensively in industry, car production lines, material handling & lifting, pillar lifts, theatres, stage production, nuclear power stations, sound systems, chandelier fitting, sports halls, and many more applications. Galvanised steel cable comes as standard, with the option to upgrade to a stainless steel cable.
