The Malta Dynamics Warthog Vertical Lifeline Assembly is a full kit built to the strongest conventional (VLA) vertical lifeline assemblies available today. It is resistant to rot and mildew and exceptionally resistant to alkalis and most solvents. The Polyester Rope Vertical Lifeline Assembly offers protection against abrasion and is heat resistant. It has a melting point of over 300°F. Vertical Lifelines may be used for either fall arrest (as part of a P.F.A.S. – personal fall arrest system) or for restraint applications. Restraint systems prevent workers from reaching the leading edge of a fall hazard. This kit includes an integral shock absorbing device, a positioning device, and a 18″ extension lanyard.
