    Full body safety harness.

    Key Features

    • Bi-coloured full body safety harness.
    • 1 attachment point (rear - chest).
    • 2 adjusting buckles.

    Industry / Job : Construction & Civil, Rescue & Emergency, Travel & Tourism

    Hazard / Risk : Fall

    How To Use

    Instruction for use:

    • This harness is recommended for all types of height interventions (frames, roofs, glass roofs, scaffoldings, traveling cranes,), for simple works, of a short period or occasional. A harness must be strapped to the body as tight as possible but not excessively to allow total freedom of movements to the user.

    Instructions for storage:

    • The harness must be hung up by the rear D-ring in a temperate, dry and ventilated room away from sun rays and rodents and humidity or placed loosely in a container.
    • Keep the Harness in its original packaging when not in use, or when transporting.
    • Transport the component or system in a package to protect it from any cuts, moisture or ultraviolet light. Avoid corrosive, overheated or refrigerated atmospheres (freezing temperatures).

    Tests Conducted

    • Dynamic Performance: The harness is fitted to a 100kg solid torso dummy and connected via the harness attached to a 2-meter length of 11mm mountaineering rope (specifically chosen to generate a known force to the harness in the case of a fall). This rope is attached to a solid anchor point, and the dummy released over a distance of 4 metres. This test is carried out twice on each harness attachment, once from a head-up position, once from a head-down position (i.e. with the dummy upside down on release). In order to pass the test, the harness must hold the dummy following both drops, with the dummy held in a position not exceeding 50° from the upright position. These tests are repeated on every attachment point on a harness.
    • Static Strength: Whole products are subjected to tensile tests, based on a factor of safety on the 6kN expected in use. Harnesses are subject to a 15kN tensile force applied in the upward direction, followed by a 10kN force applied downward. Lanyards are subjected to either 22kN or 15kN applied between the attachments points, depending on the material used – an increased force as the lanyard is expected to be more exposed to ageing factors such as abrasion in use. Tensile forces are usually applied and held for at least 3 minutes, to ensure the breaking strength of the product is in excess of the force specified by the standard.
    • Corrosion Resistance: Metallic components used in fall protection equipment are subjected to a neutral salt-spray test intended to prove a minimum resistance to environmental corrosion (specifical rust). Products are held within a sealed chamber, which is filled with a salt-water mist, which can induce rust in unprotected metals. Products are subjected to either 24 or 48 hours exposure and examined for rusting and function afterwards.

    Remarks

    • The harnesses are designed for one person with a combined total weight no greater than 100Kg, including clothing, tools and other user borne objects.
    • Don’t press it and can not come in contact with high-temperature surfaces heat source.
