Capital Safety unveils lightest-wearing harness ever invented

Posted: Monday 9th November 2015

As part of the DBI-SALA® portfolio, the new harness incorporates many of the existing features that make the range so successful.

The new ExoFit STRATATM is designed to take the weight off workers shoulders and redistributes it to where the body is better suited to carry it: the hips. It features PolarMesh™ padding, which keeps users’ backs cooler with greater air flow alongside a Revolver™ Vertical Torso Adjuster and Tri-Lock Revolver™ Connectors that provide added security around the legs.

Capital Safety has partnered with ergonomics specialists at North Western Health Science University in Minnesota to test several key aspects of the ExoFit STRATATM and compared it with alternative full body safety harnesses on the market. Using thermal sensors, load calls and motion capture cameras, a series of rigorous lab tests were performed resulting in an advanced harness solution.

During testing, the ExoFit STRATATM demonstrated the least amount of force on shoulders while the wearer is standing stationary, reducing forces on subject’s shoulders by up to 85 per cent compared with other competitive harnesses.

With more than 20 years expertise in designing products to ensure the safety of thousands of men and women who work at height, Capital Safety’s latest offering represents the culmination of years of design, research, and manufacturing know-how.

Capital Safety has helped shape and define what the modern safety harness looks like and how it performs. Previously the development of safety harnesses has focused on protection rather than comfort and productivity. This led Capital Safety to create the ExoFit STRATATM, literally taking the weight of workers’ shoulders.

Sandra Paiva, EMEA Product Manager at Capital Safety commented: “Safety and functionality are of limited use if harnesses cause the user discomfort. Having real industry experience means we understand issues workers face day in day out. We have developed the lightest-wearing harness in the industry to address the needs of our end user.”
