Petzl Absorbica-I




Single lanyard with integrated energy absorber

ABSORBICA┬«-I is a single lanyard with compact energy absorber, designed for progression on a horizontal lifeline (rope or cable) or on an elevated platform, without passing intermediate anchors. 
It functions with users weighing between 50 and 140 kg. It has several installation options on the harness and can be used with different types of connectors. 
It is available in two lengths: 80 or 150 cm versions (without connectors). 
The 150 cm version has an elasticized arm to avoid hindering progression. Depending on the connectors used, ABSORBICA®-I is certified to American, European, and Russian standards.

Detailed description

  • Designed for progression on a horizontal lifeline (rope or cable) or on an elevated platform, without passing intermediate anchors
  • Absorbs energy in the event of a fall:

- Tearing of the energy absorber webbing limits the impact force on the user
- Works with users who weigh between 50 and 140 kg (1)
- Progressive tearing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users

  • Minimal bulk:

- Compact energy absorber facilitates handling
- FLEX version with 150 cm of elasticized webbing to avoid hindering progression

  • Durable fabric pouch with opening system at each end, protects the energy absorber from abrasion or contaminants while allowing for regular inspection of the absorber
  • Two options for installation on the harness, depending on use:

- Frequent connection/disconnection: with a karabiner held in correct position by the STRING positioning accessory (included with the lanyard)

- Semi-permanent connection: with a RING OPEN gated ring, whose circular shape allows optimal positioning

  • Two connector options for the end of the lanyard: a locking karabiner or MGO OPEN connector with large gate opening
  • Available in two lengths: 80 and 150 cm
