FAB33R fall arrest block, max. 33 meter (108 ft) with rescue function

STAR series fall arrest block with integrated rescue winch for heights up to 33 meter (108 ft).


The FAB33R fall arrest block with rescue function offers up to 15 meters (108 ft) of freedom of vertical movement and limits the fall distance & fall force to a minimum in the event of a fall incident. The Fall Arrest Block has a built-in rescue winch, that allows a person (after a fall) to be lifted up or down in a controlled manner. As a result, it is not necessary for a rescuer to descend to a victim, thus avoiding unnecessary time loss.

STAR-series devices, patented and recognized design

HONOR Safety & Consultancy offers a complete range of 17 different devices for fall protection, rescue, descent, evacuation, winches, climbing wall equipment and fall protection under the brand name STAR-series. These devices developed in-house set a new standard in the field of personal safety.


Self Retracting Lifeline

SRL is the abbreviation for ‘Self Retracting Lifeline’, the English name for fall arrest device; a fall protection device whose lifeline automatically unrolls and rolls in with the movements of the user. It offers optimal freedom of movement with the certainty that, if a fall occurs, the device intervenes immediately, arrests the fall and stops the user within a very short distance.
