When you are working on a mast, you can quite often move to different heights or positions. That is why it is necessary to be very careful and to use appropriate personal protective equipment.
Work positioning belt
The work positioning belt is the most basic work-at-height equipment. This belt allows you to work with both hands free in any required position while you are safely standing for example on a bar of a lattice tower. Our model PB20 has waist reinforcement, positioning rings, adjustable buckle for size adjustment and loops for connecting a toolbox. We provide it in universal size M-XL and XXL.
A Very important accessory to the belt is a lanyard, which helps you to attach yourself to the mast or any other fixed point during your work. Lanyard usage is quite simple; you attach the rope to the positioning rings of your belt while you wrap it around the mast or any other fixed point. Because quite often you work in different positions and distances from the fixing point, it is necessary for the lanyard’s length to be adjustable. There are two basic ways to adjust a lanyard: by a manually adjustable loop on the rope (type LB 10) or with a help of a rope adjuster (type PROT 3 and PROT 11). Rope adjuster allows you to shorten or lengthen the rope with just one hand and is necessary for any kind of intensive work at heights.
PROT 3 – rope with length adjuster and rope protection, PA braided rope, Ø 14 mm, sewn eye with optional snap hook on the rope end and a snap hook on the adjuster, length: 2 m or 3 m.
LB 10 – universal safety rope with adjuster, PA braided rope, Ø 12 mm, sewn eye with eye socket on one rope end, possible to add optional snap hooks, length: 1 m or 1.5 m.
Safety harnesses are very important in case of a fall. Type LX2 and LX3 can also replace the positioning belt. We provide them in universal size M-XL and size XXL.
