#SP1ProductSpotlight: Skylotec CLAW

May 14, 2018

An Incredible New Product from Skylotec

In the latest #SP1ProductSpotlight, we’re going to take a quick look at the Skylotec Claw Vertical Fall Arrestor and highlight some of the incredible features on this new product.

The Skylotec Claw provides a unique solution for permanent vertical systems which allows climbers to work safely, without the need to disconnect and reconnect.

It meets ANSI, CSA and OSHA requirements and supports anyone weighing between 50 to 150 kg. The claw has been built for use with 3/8″ and 5/16″ diameter cables.

It’s cutting edge features enable easy use and reduced risk of accident.

Safety First

The Claw cannot be attached to a cable in the wrong way due to the integrated locking mechanism and clear symbols which indicate the correct positioning.

To prevent accidental removal, the claw can only be removed from the cable when the user actively releases the locking mechanism which then loosens it for removal.

In the scenario of a fall, the carabiner pivots downwards and the Claw stops all movement. The built in, replaceable shock absorber reduces the forces exerted on the user below the 6 kilonewtons permitted.

Smooth Movement

In addition to these important safety features, the claw was built for smooth movement. The brake shoe opens as the user pulls the carabiner while ascending and descending which enables incredibly smooth mobility while working at heights.
