Pure Safety Group (PSG), a company dedicated solely to fall protection, has unveiled its Guardian Fall Protection S1 safety harness. The S1 is the first in a series of new harnesses designed with three levels of features for various real life work scenarios. All harnesses meet OSHA standards, exceed ANSI standards and are CSA-certified.
The S1 harness is a rugged utility option for users who need to grab their fall protection gear and safely get to work. It is designed with water-resistant contrasting core webbing, label cover and impact indicators for easy inspection, dual lanyard keepers and durable rubber web keepers. The S1 features steel hardware that includes a three-bar torso adjustment for quick and proper fitting, various connection point options for use in multiple applications, and a chest strap captivation for performance. The S1 harness is available in four sizes for optimal fit.
Building on the S1 harness, the S3 harness and the S5 harness, each with additional, enhanced feature sets and innovative components, will launch in the first quarter of 2019. The harnesses in the S series are able to be customized.
“The S series is the PSG jump start on 2019,” said Oliver Auston, chief innovation officer at the company. “This first harness is the basis for the rest of the series and combines design and new and existing components to address industry needs in the best harness available. With this new innovative harness, we are able to offer improved fit and sizing, consistent performance and fivepoint adjustment. We are very excited that all harnesses will be assembled in the U.S. In addition to the harness series, we also have 10 new, innovative product lines across the spectrum of fall protection, including dropped objects prevention solutions, that we will introduce in the first half of the new year.”
The S harness series is one of the first major product launches to come from PSG since it combined its Guardian Fall Protection, Checkmate and Ty-Flot companies under one innovation strategy, made up of top engineers, designers and manufacturing experts from around the world. The harnesses are manufactured in Houston, Tex., home to PSG headquarters and its primary production facility, in keeping with the company’s commitment to manufacture more products in the U.S.
