The WaterWorks range of harnesses are suited to the extreme environments of the offshore, oil and gas, chemical, water utilities and sewerage treatment Industries. Made in Australia these AS/NZ 1891.1 2007 approved premium harnesses are manufactured to ensure comfort, safety and longevity, incorporating our Xtreme-guard oil, water and abrasion resistant webbing.
The soft, fixed, breathable composite mesh and foam padding gives the harness form, virtually eliminates tangling, and enhances the likelihood of correct fitting.
They are fitted with corrosion resistant stainless steel D rings and buckles which feature no moving parts for the ultimate in reliability and safety. Non-padded versions are also available on request.
- Confined space attachment loops
Fully encapsulated loops to eliminate snagging and minimise metal components in contact with the body.
- Front stainless steel D ring rated for fall arrest
For ease of rescue.
- Stainless steel easy glide buckles
Easy to adjust and webbing friendly. They do not creep in use and are as small as possible to minimise metal contact with the body.
- Suspension relief straps
Should an operative become suspended and is still conscious, simply join the two adjustable straps together to form a loop into which the operative can stand in order to further relieve the pressure on the inner thigh and work the leg muscles to aide circulation.
- Soft construction
The hip is a critical pressure point when a fall occurs. The presence of any metal component here can increase the chance of injury, hence our “soft” approach.
- Stainless steel easy glide 2/3 bar connector buckles.
Safe and proven over many years to be the most secure method of connection. These buckles have no moving parts, no catches or springs to get jammed by dirt, dust, or loose clothing. Corrosion resistant, easy to adjust and sized to minimise the metal to body contact.
- Padded leg straps
Simplifies the donning by virtually eliminating twists in the aleg strap. Greatly enhances comfort should an operative become suspended.
- Large stainless steel D ring
Easy to locate and connect to. The large D is always orientated correctly due to the design and configuration of the webbing. It does not require springs or gadgets to hold it in place.
- Sub-pelvic strap
The sub pelvic strap eliminates the potential to “peel” out of the harness when falling backwards in a crouched position, (when the folded body allows the buttocks and upper legs to slip out of the back of the harness). Many harnesses do not have this feature or the design is insufficient to retain the person in this manner. Elastic harnesses can be particularly vulnerable to this.
Xtreme-Guard Webbing with Self-Healing Matrix
A super soft feel webbing which has been treated with a non toxic compound to maximise oil and water resistance. This makes cleaning a much easier task and enhances abrasion resistance. The treatment will self repair should the extremely thin polymer coating become damaged due to its plasticine like flow qualities and the ability to re-close mechanically affected areas itself.
