Multi-user applications, i.e. rigid anchor lines that allow more than one user to be attached at any one time, are not addressed in this document.


The fall arresters consist of a
travelling device which moves
along a rigid anchorage line (rail or wire)
    and blocks automaticaly the user in case    
of a fall.
