Fall Protection Specialty Safety Harnesses
Not all jobs are created equal. And because of that, not all harness are created equal either. At GME Supply we pride ourselves in being America’s premier outfitter of fall protection and that’s why we carry a line of specialty harnesses. Specialty harnesses are designed to not only provide the same fall protection that regular harnesses do but to also provide added protection for certain things. Out specialty harnesses include arborist harnesses, arc flash harnesses, and hi-vis harnesses.
Some things to keep in mind when choosing your harness is what materials the hardware (D-rings and other connectors are made of). How many D-rings you need, connection points, and sizing, and certifications.
The harnesses for wind are going to feature aluminum or steel D-rings. Aluminum D-rings are lighter but more expensive. Steel D-rings, on the other hand, are cheaper, but much heavier.
D-rings, Connection Points, and Sizing:
The amount of D-rings you need will be dependent on your specific job requirements. You have 3 main options in connection points - tongue buckle, pass-through buckle, and quick connect buckle. Sizing varies depending on the manufacturer and we have a sizing chart reference guide to help you ensure that your harness will fit the way you need it to stay safe.
When looking at full body harnesses it is important to keep in mind the certifications you need them to meet. If you are working in the United States you will need a harness that meets ANSI Z359.11-2014. ANSI Z359.11-2014 outlines the safety requirements for a full body harness. If you are working in Canada you will need a harness that meets the CSA requirements. Your CSA harness will need to meet the CSA Z259.10-12 Full Body Harness Standard.
