Welcome to Guard Load Arrest


Guard load arrestors are heavy-duty fall arrest blocks for protecting equipment suspended at height.

Specifically designed to be used in collaboration with primary lifting devices, such as hoists, load arrestors provide a crucial secondary safety back-up for overhead loads.

Should the primary device or support fail, Guard load arrestors automatically stop the load from falling, thereby preventing damage to the load and, most importantly, protecting people or assets below.

Guard load arrestors have a high-strength retractable rope that extracts and retracts. So, as well as being able to protect non-moving static loads, Guards can follow the movement of equipment, or dynamic load, that it’s tethered to.
