The operation of the IKAR Inertia Reel is similar to that of a car seat belt. The internal return spring provides the mechanism by which
the Dyneema ‘web’ is allowed to extend under pressure with locking pawls to engage should there be a freefall speed exceeding 1-1.5 m/
sec. This is provided by the centrifugal force a pawls that activate the braking system.
The innovative braking system (disc brake) is pre-set in the factory to ensure forces resulting in the event of a fall are kept to below 3kN.
This setting is checked during the annual service.
Typical applications for Inertia Reels include working on high-rise buildings, chimneys, roofs and other fall hazard work, in addition
solutions for other problem work areas are also available – eg silos, shafts.
