Capital Safety Australia Introduces New Range of Rebel™ Self-Retracting Lifelines

Longer-lasting, cost-efficient fall protection lifelines

Silverwater, Australia, September 16, 2011 --( Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA, PROTECTA and UNILINE brands of fall protection equipment, has announced the launch of a new range of Rebel™ Self-Retracting Lifelines (SRL’s). The new Rebel SRL range from PROTECTA, which offers fall protection equipment at an exceptional value, features an ultra-durable product design, increased weight capacity, high-tech safety features and more product options to meet specific customer needs.

Rebel SRLs feature a top-of-class weight capacity, with the ability to accommodate up to 140 kilograms, and a sturdy, robust design to ensure a longer product life to lower the cost of ownership. With an improved ergonomic design, the Rebel SRL is available in either aluminum or composite housing models. Additionally, the device is equipped with a special carrying handle that makes transportation to and from the job site easy, and is designed to be stackable for simple, space-maximising storage.

The Rebel SRL is also designed with the worker in mind, featuring an impact indicator to ensure the equipment has not been involved in a fall. A top anchorage swivel holds the SRL in line with the worker’s motion, allowing for ease of movement and increased mobility. The new models are also sharp edge compliant, making them ideal for use in horizontal applications with an SRL shock absorbing unit.

“Our newest SRL range builds upon the quality that Capital Safety’s family of SRL’s are known for, while responding to industry demands for SRL’s that are increasingly tailored to individual needs,” said Rick Millar, Technical Manager with Capital Safety Australia & New Zealand. “These options allow customers to choose the exact Rebel SRL that is right for them, down to the type of material it is made of and the exact lifeline type and length the job site dictates. As an added bonus all of the newly designed Rebel SRL’s ship with a free service voucher.”

The complete line of Rebel SRL’s is an extensive family of products with many options, such as nylon web, galvanised or stainless steel lifelines ranging in length from 3.3 to 30 metres, providing more choices to meet customer specifications.
