Do you have any harnesses that are designed for welders and will resist burning?

Why should I switch to your harness? We are happy with our current equipment.

What if I have an employee who is within a weight class but who is either very tall or very short and the actual harness may not fit him?

  • The tradesman unit weighs 8 pounds. Any tradesman for whom this unit was designed for is used to carrying weight. Their tools actually weigh more than the harness. The harness has to be strong enough to carry you and your tools and make sure that neither you nor your tools hit the ground. We use forged steel D-rings and other connections because of this.

  • The standard unit weighs 5 pounds but does not have your tool belt or extra D-rings for use in positioning.

  • There are variations of the harness that can be used including different materials and we can make the harness lighter.

  • As a reminder, we have the newest technology in 53 years which WILL protect your workers better than the others; reduces the slamming effect which no other harness can do. No other harness can absorb downward inertia like ours does. There are eight recognized hazards in the field that can be eliminated by this harness that no other harness in existence can eliminate.

  • Other harnesses were designed to keep the worker from hitting the ground... ours was also designed to not only keep the worker from hitting the ground but will alleviate injuries when they fall.

  • We are working with OSHA in an attempt to get the standards raised and if and when we are successful then you won’t be able to use other harnesses at all. OSHA is contemplating the use of the harness in training in their 24 nationwide centers that train in fall protection and provide 10 and 30 hour OSHA training courses. Additionally, OSHA Compliance Officers will be trained as to the new technology. Since a number of hazards can now be alleviated, when violations are seen companies will be cited. Other organizations such as the AGC, and ASSE are regularly being notified as to live demonstrations in different areas around the country in order to show them the new technology.

  • The carpenters union has been instrumental in helping us get this product into the industry and is training their apprentices in the use of this equipment. They are in the process of informing their members and union contractors that this product is out there and they would prefer its use when their workers are employed by them.

As a manufacturer, we can specially make harnesses for “hard-to-fit” people. This is a specialty order but should take no longer to provide to them than a regular harness. The price is usually the same unless extra webbing or accessories are needed. Then the extra charge is usually minimal.
