DBI-SALA® Zorbit™ Energy Absorber - RECALL NOTICE

(Note: recall Limited to lot #2101506 through 2464624 only)


Dear Distributor:

3M Fall Protection (formerly Capital Safety) has identified a production issue with its Zorbit™ Energy Absorbers that creates a risk of serious injury for a user in the event of a fall from height. Although there have been no reported accidents or injuries associated with this issue, 3M Fall Protection is voluntarily recalling a limited lot range of this product and will replace affected energy absorbers free of charge within 24 hours of contacting 3M Fall Protection.

This Notice applies only to Zorbit Energy Absorbers with lot codes between 2101506 and 2464624 manufactured between March and August 2015
Zorbits with other lot codes are not affected and are safe to use. The lot code can be found easily on the Zorbit itself.

Please refer to the attached Safety Recall Notice (English) (Spanish). The Notice provides instructions to end-users on inspecting their horizontal lifeline systems and what to do if they find a Zorbit from affected lot codes. We ask that you mail, fax or email the attached Notice directly to your customers who have purchased this product, whether as a separate item or as a component of a horizontal lifeline system.

We thank you for your support and anticipated cooperation in reaching your customers with this important safety information.
