BlocstopTM BSO Fall Arrest Device
An additional safety system in accordance with DIN EN 1808 is mandatory in man riding applications. The system is used to secure the work basket or the platform on which personnel are working against falling.
TM BSO is small, light and compact and attached to the working platform where the safety rope runs through it.
The blocstopTM is designed in such a way that the clamping jaws grip tighter, the higher the load on the rope.
Furthermore, the blocstopTM has been tested using many times the nominal load in order to ensure an extremely large safety margin.
The blocstopTM family includes two additional models: the BSA and the BS.
In contrast to the BSO, the clamping jaws of the BSA are not triggered by excessive speed but rather by monitoring the suspension rope. The BSA is held open by a lever which is supported on the suspension rope by a roller. If the suspension rope breaks then this support stops and the BSA closes.
