It’s difficult to think about fall protection without thinking of FallTech, and that’s entirely understandable; they’re one of the leaders in the industry, with the track record and product line to back that spot up. Safety is always the name of the game with FallTech, but that doesn’t mean they don’t provide options for additional comfort as well, and with their latest release, they’ve included the best of both worlds.

Introducing the FallTech FT-X SRL series! This series of self-retracting lines features a host of FallTech’s latest and greatest technology, while of course meeting all the latest safety standards, and at the same time offering leading edge comfort and support thanks to its ergonomic design. The FT-X series sits higher and tighter on the back than traditional SRLs, in what’s known as the ergonomic comfort zone (in layman’s terms, right between the shoulder blades). This leads to significantly reduced back stress and pain, giving you significantly increased happiness while on the job. 

The new FT-X series also features FallTech’s patented EdgeCore synthetic lifeline system, which reduces the weight of the harness by around 40% compared to traditional steel-cable SRLs. The Kevlar- and synthetic compound-based lines offer a breaking strength that is nearly 3 times greater than standard 3/16” galvanized wire rope, leading to greater strength, security, and peace of mind while in use. Combined with the added comfort of its ergonomic design, you may even forget you’re wearing a harness at all!

The EdgeCore system also includes FallTech’s SpeedLink technology, allowing for quick and easy in-field replacement of the retract cables should one or both lines fail an inspection, and saving you on time, labor, and expense. This system also leads to the FT-X series being considered the lowest overall cost of any Class 2 SRL on the market. It of course wouldn’t be FallTech without meeting all the most stringent safety requirements for additional security on the jobsite, and the new FT-X SRLs comply with ANSI Z359.14-2021 Class 2 leading edge standards, which kick in this coming February.

FallTech has given the FT-X series the best technology on the market, even creating the entire EdgeCore system just to meet with the upcoming ANSI standards, and offer the new SRLs in either single- or twin-leg eight foot options.
