Solar Industry Technician 4 D-Ring Harnesses

4 D-ring harnesses feature all 3 of the D-rings that are on the 3 D-ring harness but also include one additional D-ring. That 4th D-ring is a sternal D-ring located at your chest. This sternal D-ring is used when climbing a ladder to attach your cable grab to your harness.

Some other things to look at when choosing your harness are materials, connection points, sizing, and certifications.

Materials, Connection Points, & Sizing:

The harnesses for the solar industry 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. 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 [insert link here] reference guide to help you ensure that your harness will fit the way you need it to stay safe.

Certifications:

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.
