The Guardian Fall Protection “Aardvark Retractable” was designed to provide exceptional value to the marketplace. If you are tired of the sleek fall protection products on the market that don’t hold up to the harsh work environments, and you are looking for a down and dirty product that will simply get the job done, the Aardvark is your answer. In 2008, the President of Guardian Fall Protection, Ed Marquardt, challenged the team of design engineers to develop a retractable that is lightweight and inexpensive and that would hold up to harsh jobsite environments. Through painstaking research and development, the Aardvark was developed. With a steel framed, reinforced synthetic housing, quick action spring mechanisms, and state-of-the-art materials, the Aardvark met our high standards. The spring loaded absorber limits the redundant locking up of the retractable that can create costly repairs and frustrated employees. This added flexibility makes the retractable easier to use. The steel plate insert molded into the ultra lightweight housing provides added strength and durability to the retractable. This superior, advanced manufacturing process is cost effective, yet delivers the dependability you require. Our new pawl design creates backup safety features so that the retractable will lock up well within ANSI guidelines. The combination of the brass pawls and unique braking mechanisms create an energy absorbing system designed to limit fall arrest forces.
