Vessel to Turbine Transfer Made Safe

The ManSafe® Sealed SRL offers a dependable means of fall protection whilst climbing any offshore wind turbine access ladder.

The ManSafe® Sealed Self Retracting Lifeline (SRL)—when combined with a fixed, custom-made post—allows safe, unhindered access from vessel to turbine. Once mounted on a specially-designed post, and combined with a pulley-based tether line, the SRL is easily accessible by the user from the boat.

Once inside the turbine, the tailored cable system for internal aluminum ladders provides safe, permanent attachment without the need to remove the cable from the intermediate wire guides allowing safe ground to nacelle transition.

Unique Features & Standards

The Sealed SRL has been developed with a number of unique features to provide a smarter, safer, stronger and better alternative to traditional SRLs.

  • The pawl locking mechanism provides a 100% reliable locking mechanism that will not freeze, hang-up or corrode.
  • A built-in reserve line ensures that a fall is arrested safely even when the cable is fully extended.
  • The critical components are sealed from the external environment by a series of gasket, preventing material and moisture ingress.
  • Independent testing to EN 360:2002—includes corrosion resistance testing (through 1000 hours of salt spray exposure)
  • Complies with OSHA 1910.66 & 1926.502 and ANSI Z359. 1-1999
  • Carries CE0194
  • ATEX approved— suitable for use in potentially explosive environments.
  • IP69k Approval (Ingress Protection).
