Guardian Fall Protection issues recall of certain self-retracting lifelines.

STI seeks public comment on new standard for inspection, repair and modification of underground steel tanks

PRODUCT RECALL – Certain Self Retracting Lifelines identified in this Notice.  20’ and 30’ with specific serial numbers.

Guardian Fall Protection recently discovered a potential performance  problem  with  20’  &  30’  Edge Series Self-­‐Retracting Lifelines (SRL) in complying with ANSI Z359.14-­‐2012 requirements for -­‐40°F cold conditioning tests. There have been no reported injuries due to this issue. Guardian has found some non-­‐conforming performance results in freezing temperatures that have now been addressed and remedied. As a result of the non-­‐conformance, and in order to take the most prudent course of action possible, Guardian has elected to recall a specific range of serial numbers that fall in the non-­‐conforming production  batch.


Failure to return the specified units may result in serious injury or death.
