FallClear App Fall Arrest Clearances Made Easy

Introducing the FREE FallClear Lite App - available now at the App Store

Attend our FREE webinar and learn our easy method to calculate clearances using the Clearance Card and the FallClear App

‘FallClear’ is a tool for Workers, Supervisors, Competent and Qualified Persons, who have been properly trained in fall protection.

It evaluates required clearance for several fall arrest scenarios that the user identifies by selecting the applicable pictogram. ‘FallClear LITE’, presumes that personal energy absorbers (PEAs) always fully deploy when arresting a fall.

‘FallClear PRO’ estimates personal energy absorber and SRL deployment based on the specified worker weight and the minimum properties that would allow the device to pass the CSA, ANSI or EN standard selected by the user.

The root App estimates clearance based on connection to non-deflecting anchorages, but provides advice on how to estimate additional required clearance to account for deflection of horizontal lifelines, stretch of vertical lifelines, and swing falls.

Version Comparison FallClear Lite FallClear Pro

User Weight

Maximum 140 kg (310 lb)

Calculates clearance based on the weight entered by the user

Impacts

Does not determine if the PEA will fully deploy potentially causing unsafe impacts

Warns if the PEA will fully deploy potentially causing unsafe impacts

Personal Energy Absorbers (PEA)

Assumes full deployment

Calculates deployment based on user weight and the minimum PEA deployment force that would allow the PEA to pass the selected standard.

Self Retracting Lifelines (SRL)

Assumes SRLs all have a clutching mechanism to slow the fall

Assumes SRL has a clutching mechanism to slow the fall . Calculates deployment based on user weight and an average deployment force of 450 lbs which seems to match what most manufacturers are doing.

Vertical Lifelines

Assumes 10% stretch when arresting a fall

Stretch is accurately determined based on a simple test performed by the user

Rope Grabs (Fall Arresters)

Require 0.6m (2 ft) to lock onto the lifeline

Require 0.6m (2 ft) to lock onto the lifeline

Boom Lifts

Assumes 0.6m (2 ft) of deflection when arresting a fall

Deflection is accurately estimated based on a simple test performed by the user

Swing Fall Distance (SFD)

Warns user to add SFD to the final calculated value and offers rules of thumb for determining
