Reinforcing its position as a leader in the most advanced and cost-effective Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), MSA Africa has launched its V-FORM safety harness for work-at-height applications.
This is a high-specification, competitively-priced fall-protection harness that gives users the comfort and knowledge that they are selecting the best PPE that will not let them down when they need it most, comments Nicolas Abry, Business Development Manager, Fall Protection, MEAIR, MSA Middle East FZE. Such is MSA’s confidence in the new harness that it carries a ten-year lifespan.
“We want to ensure that our safety solutions are available to as many users as possible, and therefore have developed a product that offers MSA’s standards at the best total cost of ownership,” Alastair Hogg, Director for Fall Protection Sales and Business Development, International, elaborates.
The V-FORM harness is the first product available in the new V product range, named after the iconic V-Gard® safety helmet developed by MSA in 1962, and trusted by tens of millions of PPE users across the globe.
Additionally, the V-FORM harness makes outstanding work-at-height safety accessible to all by delivering MSA Safety’s market-leading standards at an exceptional price. Designed to be comfortable, light and easy to use, it combines simplicity with safety in a streamlined harness that can be fastened securely, and released quickly. An intuitive design ensures correct fitting first time, every time.
The harness can be tailored to requirements, with either a three- or five-point adjustment. It features a high-visibility alert to show if the equipment has been used in a fall, and a sub-pelvic strap for more even weight distribution. Certified to take 140 kg, the new harness is extremely comfortable to wear and work in all day. This is due to advanced manufacture and materials optimising durability.
A Velcro® cover protects the harness label, while end users can choose between Qwik-Fit or bayonet leg straps. The V-FORM waist belt can be attached onto a harness for work positioning. What is more, putting the harness on has been simplified by means of colour-contrasting thigh and torso straps.
