COMPTON, Calif. – FallTech, a leader in personal safety fall protection products has announced the launch of a new family of DuraTech Self-Retracting Devices with a side cable payout; a new generation of SRD.  This new SRD is designed with a smoother extension and retraction of the cable that assists in reducing nuisance lock-up allowing workers to move more efficiently on the jobsite allowing for increased productivity.

“One of the many things we have learned over the years is workers are not gentle with their equipment, so we had to design the DuraTech SRD to be tough”, said Jeff Shipley, director of marketing.  “We constructed the housing of lightweight, durable, corrosion resistant aluminum and also integrated an interlocking feature into the housing that allows the SRDs to stack on top of one another to maximize transport and minimize storage space requirements.  We also molded a carrying handle into the housing so the SRD is able to be moved safely and easily around the job site.”

Of course safety is second to none. The DuraTech SRD offers an internal braking system that provides fast acting braking in the event of a fall for maximum stopping power. A dependable 3/16” galvanized wire cable is the lifeline that includes a load-indicating locking swivel carabiner for a safe and secure connection to the workers harness.      

To handle a multitude of jobs and industries, FallTech DuraTech SRD is offered in lengths of 15', 20', 25, 30', 40', 50 and 60’ and comply with all applicable ANSI and OSHA standards.
