Capital Safety introduces the DBI-SALA EZ-Stop Lanyard

New and improved lanyard is lighter, stronger and more durable

February 5, 2013

EZ-Stop-Lanyard-Capital-SafetyThis week at World of Concrete in Las Vegas (Booth #O30100), Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA® and PROTECTA® brands of fall protection equipment, will feature four new products.

One of them is the new and improved DBI-SALA® EZ-Stop™ Lanyard. Lighter, stronger and more durable than ever, the EZ-Stop Lanyard offers the industry’s first modular lanyard designed with components that can be replaced individually when worn or damaged, rather than having to purchase an entire new unit. It also features Hi-10™ energy management material, the smallest shock pack in the world, the lightest and strongest rebar hooks on the market, durable Repel™ webbing, and a rugged and durable soft cover with protected labels.

The new modular EZ-Stop Lanyard was created as a cost-effective alternative to competing products, having a lower overall cost of ownership. The patented one-handed quick connect design offers maximum versatility, allowing users to change pieces on the spot to accommodate various tasks and job requirements, such as leg length, hook type and size, and single or twin leg configuration.

“We base a lot of our new product development on what we hear from customers; what their specific needs are,” said Jacob Shevik, soft goods product manager at Capital Safety. “We kept hearing that there was an industry need for a product with replaceable parts – not only for the cost-effectiveness of it, but also for the flexibility. The modular EZ-Stop is a unique product that meets those needs across industries.”

The EZ-Stop Lanyard features the lightest and strongest components on the market. The new Hi-10™ shock pack is 66 percent smaller and 40 percent lighter than competing

products, making it the smallest available shock pack in the world. Consisting of high tenacity Vectran® fiber, the Hi-10™ is resistant to abrasion, moisture, chemicals and cuts, and uses less than half the material content than competing products.

The EZ-Stop Lanyard is also equipped with ¾ inch webbing (the thinnest ever offered), which reduces weight and excess bulk for the wearer. The updated steel and aluminum rebar hooks are another industry first for DBI-SALA, featuring a patent pending locking nose design and a dual-action 3,600 pound gate for ANSI compliance and increased strength.

Most ANSI 6-foot free fall models are made with Repel™ water repellent webbing to reduce the attraction of mold and dirt, leading to better abrasion resistance. The EZ-Stop Lanyard’s superior design is equipped with i-Safe™ technology, which allows it to be tracked in inventory and tagged with usage data. The EZ-Stop meets all applicable OSHA and ANSI industry standards.

Also being debuted by Capital Safety at World of Concrete:

  • Nano-Lok Arc Flash SRL
  • Rollgliss R520 Escape System
  • i-Safe 3.0 accessories
