If you work in the growing wind energy industry we've got gear for you.You know there are three components to any fall protection system - anchor, harness, and lifeline. The anchors are generally covered by the towers you're working on so we'll focus on harness and lifeline options.
The main thing you need to look for in a harness is the chest d-ring. In addition to the standard back d-ring, the front d gives you an attachment point that helps with positioning and climbing safely.
For close quarters climbing and positioning for install and maintenance, you'll likely need a short lanyard. Ranging in size from 18 inches to 8 feet, you can find the right length to allow you room to move without going too far. Choose the correct material - polyester web or cable (recommended for welding).
For farther ranging work you may need a retractable lifeline. There are standard single line SRL's ranging from 6-foot up to 175' covering large distances. You can even choose a dual or twin leg retractable in order to insure 100% tie-off.
So if you have the job of building and keeping those turbines in top shape we've got fall protection gear for you.
