The Anchor Trolley uses a simple design that engages automatically during a fall event. The attachment point for the self-retracting lanyard (SRL) hangs below the enclosed track. If at least 80 pounds of force, including the weight of the SRL, are exerted on the SRL attachment, the hands-free brakes will engage. When the brakes are engaged, a series of eight hardened-alloy steel contact points create friction against the enclosed track. The friction generated by the contact points, in conjunction with the weight of the worker, causes the trolley to stop all movement on the track. After the weight of the worker has been removed from the trolley, the contact points are lifted and the trolley can resume rolling along the track.
The Anchor Trolley has been built with non-consumable parts, meaning the Anchor Trolley requires minimal maintenance and minimal parts that may need repair. In addition to requiring little maintenance, the Anchor Trolley is weather and temperature-proof. To ensure that you have a full range of motion while using the Anchor Trolley, our engineers designed the swiveling connector (where you attach your SRL) to have 360-degree rotation and allow for 30-degree off-center loading (as allowed by OSHA).
