Move around tough work areas and environments confidently with 3M™ self-retracting lifelines (SRLs). Working together with other fall protection components such as anchorages and body support, innovations in 3M self-retracting lifelines provide enhanced mobility and convenience for effective fall arrest in any situation.
From lightweight designs for easy portability to dual-mode models for self and assisted rescue, various styles, configurations and lengths are available to suit any need. Each self-retracting lifeline is also built to meet or exceed local safety standards, providing reliable protection that supports you and the work you do.
Designed specifically for foot-level tie off or sharp leading-edge applications. Features an integrated energy absorber that limits arresting forces, and improved lifeline materials for resistance against cuts.
Performance with portability. The lightweight Ultra-Lok™ is built for rugged environments, with stainless steel components, an anti-ratcheting break system and dual-mode operation for assisted and self-rescue.
Ideal for heavy-duty use and harsh environments. Sealed-Blok™ features a sturdy, corrosion-resistant sealed design that keeps grease, moisture and other foreign elements from entering for peak efficiency.
Before setting up any fall arrest system, it’s important to calculate the exact fall distance before your self-retracting lifeline or lanyard starts to slow down. This helps to ensure adequate clearance and prevent workers from contact with any lower level or obstruction in the event of a fall. A properly designed system should also limit the distance of a free fall to no more than 2 metres.
Refer to our fall clearance chart below to determine the safe Required Distance (RD) and lifeline length required for your work site.
