Suspension harnesses are those harnesses that have a safety system and are designed for operators who need to perform work at height while suspended.
In addition, thanks to the belt approved for work in suspension, the harness allows the operator to position himself while protecting its users against a fall.
They have a fall arrest restraint system and a quality restraint system, which provides safety when performing descents or other types of work at height.
Accessus suspension harnesses comply with 3 homologation regulations:
This category of harnesses is the most versatile of the family since it is the only one that has all 3 regulations simultaneously.
The most important to mention is the one that complies with the EN 361 fall arrest standard, which means that they have different anchor points in the form of metal or textile rings, which can be located on the front or back indicated as “A” or ” A / 2 “.
They must always be used with a connector, and they need to have a load resistance of 12 kN to support the weight of the operator in the event of a fall.
In reference to the EN 358 positioning standard, it indicates that our suspension harnesses also have a positioning belt with side rings so that the operator can hold and position himself. These rings are combined with the anchor points of the EN 361 fall arrest standard.
They also have the EN 813 standard for seating or suspension. This category is the one that gives the name to this category of harness. It includes a ventral ring to be able to carry out work in suspension.
