Honeywell launches new harness
By Lindsey Anderson08 October 2014
Honeywell has launched its Miller H-Design harness, designed for construction and general industry applications specifically. The H-Design makes adjusting straps and buckles faster, while also offering greater freedom of movement, Honeywell said.
“Designed to put user comfort, flexibility and convenience first, the ergonomic H-shape is the key to the Miller H-Design harness,” said Céline Verdot, Product Manager Fall Protection for Honeywell Safety Products, EMEAI. “The large openings on both sides, without a crosspiece, combined with horizontal leg straps create a uniquely comfortable solution. As a result, Miller H-Design provides an unmatched user experience and workers using the harness feel unrestrained in their movements. They can subsequently focus better on the job in hand, leading to an improvement in productivity.”
Available with or without DuraFlex stretch webbing at the shoulders for comfort, the Miller H-Design has features "that make this harness up to three times faster to put on than traditional harnesses," the company said. These features include easy-to-access buckles that offer the ability to make intuitive adjustments by pulling from the top, down (vs. traditional harness buckles that require pulling from the bottom, up); as well as a chest strap that can be adjusted for a more comfortable fit.
Customers can choose from two front anchor point options: two large, thin webbing loops, or a patented sternal D-ring that helps center workers in the event of a fall to prevent them from tilting sideways. The back D-ring of the H-Design is positioned at an angle to make it easy to reach and connect to.
The stitching and fall indicators positioned on front web loops and back plate make inspection of the H-Design simple for safety managers and workers. The harness also comes with protected traceability labels to support inspection records. Water-repellent and stain free webbing help make the H-Design durable, reducing total cost of ownership. The H-Design harness also meets the requirements of EN 361:2002 and is certified for use up to 140kg.
