Safety instructions for fall arresters type S5a

The fall protection function of our S5a fall arresters delivered before 20 October 2010 may be insufficient if a user falls back.

Due to new regulations in the test procedure, initiated by Great Britain, we had to modify our SiS systems including the S5a fall arrester. The result of this labour-intensive modification process is a completely new generation of fall protection systems. These new S5b systems replace the previous S5a models with immediate effect. Replacement deliveries or repairs of S5a models are no longer available.

This is to inform you that the fall protection function of our fall arrester type S5a may be insufficient in case the user falls back. A fall back situation represents a safety risk. It is no longer permitted to distribute, market and sell our fall arrester type S5a.
