Tower Climbing Safety Harnesses

GME Supply knows fall protection. We have spent the last decade focusing on servicing tower climbers and keeping them safe and productive while on the job. When working at-height one key aspect of fall protection is your safety harness. A safety harness not only needs to be functional, but comfortable as well. We offer a wide range of 6 D-ring harnesses best suited for the tower climbing industry.

Some things to keep in mind when choosing your harness is what materials the hardware (D-rings and other connectors are made of), connection points, sizing, and certifications.

Materials:

The harnesses for tower climbing 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. When you’re climbing in 90° humid weather for 8 hours a day weight is an important consideration.

Connection Points and Sizing:

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 insure that your harness will fit the way you need it to so you can stay safe and productive. 

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 Z259.10-12 Full Body Harness Standard.
