The Absorbica is a compact energy absorber. It is used in combination with Jane lanyards to create a fall arrest lanyard.

Equipped with tear-webbing inside a pouch that opens on each end, the absorber is protected from abrasion, while allowing for regular inspection.



Component Part, Energy Absorbing


  • Designed for use in combination with Jane lanyards to make a fall arrest lanyard with a maximum length of two meters.
  • Jane lanyards available as single I lanyards, or a double Y lanyard.
  • Absorbs energy in case of a fall:
    – tearing of the energy absorber webbing limits the impact force on the user
    – works with users who weigh between 50 and 130 kg
    – progressive tearing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users
  • Minimal bulk: compact, to facilitate handling
  • Durable fabric pouch with opening system at each end, protects the energy absorber from abrasion or contaminants while allowing for regular inspection of the absorber
  • Two options for installation on the harness, depending on use:
    – frequent connection/disconnection: using either a carabiner that is held in correct position by the String positioning accessory (included with the absorber), or a Micro Swivel to avoid tangling
    – semi-permanent connection: using either a Ring Open gated ring whose circular shape ensures optimal positioning, or a Swivel Open to avoid tangling.
