Blocstop™ Blocstop™

Blocstop™ fall arrest device

For man riding applications a protective secondary safety device is mandatory. For this use Tractel offers the BS and BSO Blocstop products. In response to the most strict safety regulations, they can easily be attached to most fittings. The «TIRFOR®» jaw-type unit fitted inside the BLOCSTOP closes onto the safety wire rope and as the jaws grip over a large area causes no damage to the wire rope.

The BLOCSTOP is a fall-arrest secondary safety device which, when fitted to an appropriate wire rope, can be used in conjunction with almost any lifting equipment.

Basic models :

- Blocstop™ Manual BS
- Blocstop™ Overspeed BSO
- Double Blocstop™ Overspeed BS/BSO

The hand operated Blocstop™ BS is the perfect device to be used to hold or restrain loads during lifting and pulling applications.

The overspeed Blocstop™ BSO is used as a secondary brake, which is required as a safety device on suspended platforms for man riding applications. The BSO can be mounted either on the main suspension wire rope or a separate safety wire rope.
