Rigid Lifelines has announced a new line of fall protection harnesses. This new line of ANSI rated harnesses comes in several models that are now available for purchase through the Rigid Lifelines dealer network. “Adding harnesses to our line of fall protection solutions is another step in making it easy for Rigid Lifelines dealers to provide turnkey fall protection solutions to end-users” says Steve Uhlig, Rigid Lifelines vice president. “While our dealers will still be able to carry their own lines of harnesses for sale, the Rigid Lifelines harnesses provide a rock solid option when a dealer doesn’t carry a line.” The Rigid Lifelines new line of harnesses is being rolled out with three models, including a Standard Universal and Universal-XL, as well as a Universal Deluxe model. The Standard Universal and Deluxe models accommodate workers with weights up to 310 LBs, while the Universal-XL accommodates workers up to 400 LBs. The Deluxe model incorporates padding for added back support and comfort for workers who must wear a harness for a long period of time. During the early summer months of 2011, the line will be expanded further to include a universal model specifically engineered for female workers, and a welding harness for harsh work environments.
