       Revolutionizing Connections in FALL PROTECTION..


       A popular phrase in fall protection is- “Your system is as strong as the strength of its weakest link”.
       Hence it is extremely important to recognize the “weak link” in your system to ensure that it is strong enough to
       sustain the impact of a fall!


                           A close analysis of failure of connectors has
                            revealed that when a fall took place, the
                           Connector did not necessarily get impacted
                            only along its major load bearing axis as
                                       shown in figure.

                          along the side of its Gate, or along the face

                                          of its Gate!
                                                                                  Impact of

                                            Existing Norms like ISI & EN only test the connector along its major
                                            load bearing axis for its static strength, the strength along the other
                                            planes have been overlooked.
                                            But KARAM understands that falls take place not entirely adhering to
                                            laboratory conditions.


                                             KARAM  has  therefore  ventured  to  think  beyond  just  the
                                             requirement of the Norms, and instead worked towards solving
                                             the problem so as to ensure complete safety of a worker working
