  • Shock absorbing brake cushions the fall

G.Guard load arrestors are lifting safety equipment. They are heavy-duty fall arrest blocks for protecting equipment that is suspended at height.

Load arrestors provide a secondary safety back-up for overhead loads, used in conjunction with a primary lifting device or support, such as a hoist or fixed anchorage. If the primary support fails, the load arrestor will automatically stop the load from falling, thereby preventing damage to the load and, more importantly, protecting people below.

Globestock’s G.Guard load arrestors have a high-strength retractable cable that extracts and retracts, following the movement of the load. This means the G.Guards can be fitted to equipment that needs to be moved (dynamic loads), as well as to non-moving (static) loads.

G.Guards are a cost-effective, straight-forward way of managing risk.
