Sperian Protection has added the Manyard lanyard to its Miller products, which prevent accidents caused by the breakage of fall protection connection elements during on-edge use.

The range was developed following the company involvement in the European VG11 working group analysis of methods for testing fall protection connections on edges.

The hazards associated with fall protection lanyards breaking against edges have led to many European organisations raising awareness of this issue.

While the testing method developed by the VG11 working group has not yet been included in regulatory standards, Sperian has used its recommendations to inform the development of its range of edge-tested products.

The Manyard uses technology developed from the textile industry and the manufacture of elastic products: the wrapped filament is born out of the production of a hybrid thread that combines elasticity with break-resistance.

Sperian has developed a protective sleeve that has mechanical properties resistant to impacts against edges.

Each of the sleeves is composed of a POY core with a significant stretch capacity, with a wound and durable thread over this core to make it resistant to shearing.

This protects the absorbent material inside and makes it free to arrest the fall.

The Manyard is ideal for scaffolding, maintenance, industry and telecommunications.

It also meets the EN 355:2002 standard and the EN 354 draft standard on horizontal use and edge testing.
