Safety Alert

Personal Protective Equipment - Petzl Products 

The Health and Safety Authority wishes to advise owners/users of a Safety Alert issued by Peltz for Personal Protective Equipment products - ZIGZAG/ZIGZAG+/ZILLON.

This is as a result of customer returns alerting of slippage with new or slightly used ZIGZAG / ZIGZAG PLUS / ZILLON products.

This information concerns the following products: ZIGZAG (D022AA00), ZIGZAG PLUS (D022BA00), ZILLON (L22A 025, L22A 040, L22A 055) with serial numbers between 18L 0000000 000 and 21G 0000000 000. See photographs below.

This production variance causes premature wear of the release levers, resulting in slippage that can be observed after a few months of use, or on new products.

What to do

With immediate effect, the products involved should no longer be used until an immediate inspection and tests are carried out as per Petzl Safety Alert-Product Notice.

Should you stock or have resold a potentially affected product or passed it on to others, you are requested that you follow the instructions in the link and pass this safety warning on to any Product recipient as quickly as possible.

Please note Petzl Distribution are solely responsible for managing this Safety Alert and return of products if required. All queries or clarifications must be made directly with Petzl Distribution, not the Authority.
