New Petzl ASAP Sorber Axess

A sewn webbing energy absorber With many applications, the Petzl Absorbica is a useful addition to any access teams equipment.

The Petzl Absorbica can be used in conjunction with PPE lanyards to produce bespoke fall arrest lanyards. Note that the length of the lanyard including connectors must not exceed 2m.

The Petzl Absorbica can also be used in conjunction with the Petzl ASAP by rope access technicians. Because all rope access techs may be required to carry out at a minimum a snatch rescue, they must consider the Petzl ASAPs effect on the rope should a fall occur during that rescue. The standard Petzl Asap Sorber is not designed for two person loads and therefore the Petzl Absorbica should be used in its place. Consideration must be given to the increased clearance required by the Petzl Absorbica.

The key features of the Petzl Absorbica are summarised below:

  • Ends equipped with Petzl String
  • Protective nylon case with zipped inspection access
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Can be used with a lanyard to create a fall arrest lanyard with a maximum length of 2 meters

When packaged the Petzl absorbica is 22cm long, deployed it is 160cm. Users should carefully consider clearance distances before use, see the image below for more information.
