Petzl releases work-positioning lanyards

The GRILLON is an easily adjustable work-positioning lanyard and can be used in conjunction with a fall-arrest system or to position around a workstation. It can also be used as a temporary horizontal lifeline when working on large surfaces.

There are four models available depending on type of work: the GRILLON, which is the standard model; the GRILLON PLUS, which uses an aramid fiber rope for abrasion resistance; the GRILLON HOOK, which is ideal when using double mode and the GRILLON MGO, which is ideal for connecting to metal structures or large cables or bars.

Seven lengths are available, 2m, 3m, 4m, 5m, 10m, 15m and 20 m, and can be adjusted for comfortable positioning in single or double mode. The GRILLON is certified to North American standards and is certified to ANSI Z359.3 and CSA Z259.11.
