This harness is designed for rope access, but can be used for other working at height applications.

Packed with a number of high quality support pads on the legs, waist and chest to ensure working throughout the day in this harness is a comfortable experience.

Six tool loops in total (4 on the waistbelt and 1 on each leg pad) allows the user to attach all their rope access equipment in easily reachable areas.

Easily identifiable yellow loops located around the ventral attachment point allow the attachment of a bosun’s chair. These webbing loops mean a bosun’s chair doesn’t need to be attached to a D ring which avoids a metal on metal connection, which damages quickly and is ill advised when on a horizontal axis.

The design of the chest area stops the straps from cutting into the neck.

The chest ascender comes as standard, but is removable meaning it can be taken off and stored away so the harness can be used in other areas.

Not restricted to rope access work this harness can be used in work positioning, fall arrest and restraint. The rear D ring is also approved for rescuing from (EN 1497), keeping the causality upright during rescue.

Tail tidies on the chest straps allow for neat stowage of excess webbing following adjustment.

*14 times reduction in bacterial growth, according to ISO 20743:2013 contact with K.pneumoniae, commonly associated with healthcare infections such as E.coli.

These harnesses are the first of their kind.

Certified free from harmful chemicals as the dye used is OEKO-Tex (R). Along with being PFC-free (hazardous fluorinated compounds that are bio-accumulative).
