Global height safety specialist Guardian has introduced the new CR5 Personal Self-Retracting Lifeline to its industry-leading product line offering. This new, feature-rich, 6-foot Class 1 SRL was designed with strength and durability in mind to take on the toughest job site tasks.

The all-new CR5 Personal SRL boasts high-strength, impact-modified thermoplastic housing that reduces weight and enhances durability; a premium triple-action carabiner that keeps the unit securely connected to the dorsal D-ring; a durable nylon cover that protects the shock absorber element from abrasions, dust and debris for increased longevity; and a digitally enabled QR code on the housing that links to the website product page for instant access to the instruction manual, technical data sheet, compliance documentation and other important product information. Additionally, the CR5 exceeds ANSI Z359.14-2021 with an arrest distance of 36 inches.

As a designated Class 1 SRL-P device, the CR5 is suitable for applications where the anchor point is at or above the worker’s dorsal D-ring with the SRL housing connected at the worker’s back or to an anchor point.
