The element of tie up absorber is the union of indispensable security between the human body and the wire of the road ferrata. His role of absorber of energy is key so that the user resist the arrest of a fall. The recent elements of tie up by tear allow to control easily if the absorber
Already it has torn .
At the end of the element of tie up, the mosquetones of connection are subjected to a rozamiento repeated in the wire, what stresses his wear. His opening mechanisms/closing and of blockade are requested permanently.
Before any utilisation, checks in the element absorber:
– The state of the strips and of the sewings of security (of different colour).
– The absence of courts and wear.
– It opens the protection of the absorber, takes out the strip of tear and inspects that it was not torn.
– In the mosquetones, checks the absence of fissures, deformations and excessive wear (maximum 1 mm).
– It realises a proof of operation of the opening mechanisms and closing of the trigger (opens the trigger and checks that it closes and remains blocked automatically when the loose. It adds a drop of oil if necessary. It checks that the dock of return of the trigger give it back to his initial place of fast form).
– The orifice of the Keylock, to level of the trigger, does not have to be obturado (earth, piedrecitas…).
– For the mosquetones EASHOOK, tightens the trigger and ensure you that it remains closed.
– Never reutilices an element of tie up absorber after a hit that have caused a tear, neither that it was minimum, of the system of absorption (by slide or tear).
It refuses the element of tie up, or the mosquetones :
– If the results of the verificación are not satisfactory.
– After an important hit.
– If doubts of his reliability.
