Re-seal rescue devices: SKYLOTEC doubles lifetime of "Seal Pacs”

The SKYLOTEC rescue system is often used for this purpose. It is stored in place in the "Seal Pac" (a sealed aluminium box) for up to 10 years. Now the manufacturer of fall protection systems offers the possibility of extending the service life by another ten years. This is cost-effective and sustainable. Read more

Manufacturers' Associations Provide Information About Transitional Provision

What's right and what's wrong? Regulation 2016/425 regarding personal protective equipment (PPE Regulation) has applied since 21 April 2018. There is still a lot of misinformation on the market regarding the transitional provision, which expires on 21 April 2019. The rights and obligations of distributors are erroneously equated, for example, with those of manufacturers. Here you can read what effects the transitional provision will actually have on manufacturers and resellers and when the placing on the market or sale of goods will no longer be permitted under the old law.

Precautionary Inspection Check of SKYLOTEC Via Ferrata Sets

Neuwied 29 May 2018 – The brand SKYLOTEC stands for the highest safety in industry and mountain sport and guarantees this through high standards and regular internal tests. In the critical area of via ferrata sets in particular, we aim to offer the “safest via ferrata set on the market” since we launched the “RIDER” and our quality controls at SKYLOTEC are accordingly stringent. During the routine quality check of the last batch of the SKYSAFE carabiner, we noticed that its break values are scattered, even though the hardness tests exhibited no deviations. During an enhanced sampling, erratic values were even determined in a range that is no longer standard-compliant/safety-relevant. Read more
