Abstract (en)

[origin: GB2336617A] A height safety system comprises a flexible element (2) eg a wire, to which a lanyard is attached, supported by a number of spaced apart support brackets (10). The support brackets (10) can absorb loads along the flexible element (2) up to a predetermined limit, whereafter any excess load is transmitted along the flexible element (2) to an adjacent support bracket (10). The system is intended to reduce the 'shock' loading on each bracket (10) and hence on the structure to which the system is mounted. The flexible element (2) may move relative to the support bracket (10) when the load exceeds the pre-determined limit. The load exceeding the pre-determined limit may cause a portion (14) of the particular support bracket (10) to deform.
