With their new range harnesses IGNITE SERIES SKYLOTEC sets new benchmarks with regard to ergonomics and design. The personal protection equipment (PPE) against falls from a height is designed such that the user hardly notices it when wearing and consequently enjoys wearing it. The harnesses from this series are available in different versions suitable for almost all scopes of application, and they represent a genuine relief for all who need to be secured when working at heights.
Employees who have to climb to heights for work in industrial environments, building sites or wind power plants must secure themselves against falling by using personal protection equipment (PPE) against falls from a height. For selection of the correct PPE against falls from a height, optimum fit of a harness and its ease of handling are decisive aspects. In this context, the IGNITE SERIES by SKYLOTEC sets new standards. The many sophisticated details that give the new harness series an advantage over conventional products include, for example, padding that is specifically designed for human anatomy and ensures optimum distribution of loads. In this way, the weight no longer rests on the shoulders only but is distributed to the hips. For employees who have to wear their harness on a daily basis for several hours, this is a substantial relief. Severely aching muscles and/or tenseness in the shoulder and neck area are therefore history. The new safety harnesses are hardly noticed by users while working.
High wearing comfort and ease of handling
Another intelligent detail feature of the IGNITE SERIES is a new adjuster mechanism. It prevents the harness straps from loosening accidentally. That is a problem frequently encountered by users of fall protection harnesses. They consider it cumbersome to repeatedly having to re-fasten their straps because they are constantly in motion. In contrast to that, the models of the IGNITE SERIES harness range do not loosen, even at constant movement. Wearing comfort and ease of handling are important criteria for users to enjoy wearing their PPE against falls from a height. If a harness does not comply with these properties, this may even result in users not wearing the equipment required by law, at all.
When developing the IGNITE SERIES, SKYLOTEC also put a focus on making application and handling of the harnesses as easy as possible for the users. This is particularly important for users who only use their PPE against falls from a height sporadically. For example, the main attachment points of all models are designed in a striking orange colour to facilitate identification and prevent incorrect use. The importance of details such as this is revealed by statistics: Often, the underlying cause for occurrence of work accidents is not that the person involved did not wear their PPE against falls from a height. Rather, the main reason is that the equipment was incorrectly used.
Four models for almost all scopes of application
The safety harnesses from this series are available in different versions suitable for almost all scopes of application. The IGNITE ION may be used on construction sites or in maintenance and servicing, for example. With its simple adjustment options at the chest and the legs, this model, which is certified as safety harness as per EN 361, is also suitable for employees who do not frequently wear PPE against falls from a height. The closure in the chest area snaps magnetically and closes almost automatically. This ensures ease of use, even while wearing protective gloves. In contrast to that, the IGNITE TRION is the right choice for all who are looking for a complete harness solution for industry and trade applications. It scores with extremely flexible adjustments of belt straps that are passed through the light-weight and pre-shaped hip padding. Due to its asymmetric shape, the padding ensures that the buckle does not exert any pressure in the abdominal area. Additional advantages with regard to wearing comfort: ergonomically shaped retaining eyelets are close-fitting and can be folded in to lie very flat on the hip without disturbing the wearer in their movements. Moreover, the click buckles made of stainless steel are equipped with new adjustment elements that eliminate undesirable loosening of the belt strap during constant movement and obviate the need for repeated re-adjustment. The IGNITE TRION is certified as safety harness as per EN 361 and EN 358 for holding in working position and retaining in areas with risk of falling.
The IGNITE PROTON model by SKYLOTEC is a further development of the popular "ARG 51" model. For example, people working as assemblymen in steel construction, overhead-line construction or in telecommunications can look forward to additional benefits. With its modern design and many sophisticated details, the model leaves nothing to be desired. The molded shoulder and leg padding are soft, form close contact with the wearer's body and ergonomically adapt to the wearer's anatomy. Moreover, the model is equipped with a high-quality hip pad that is perfectly tailored to human anatomy. Based on scientific insights, the inner shape with many differently sized ridges was adapted to the anatomy of the human body, i.e. muscle and bone structure, to ensure optimum load distribution and avoid pressure points from the outset. This does not only prevent pressure sore during wearing. It also relieves the spine due to optimum load distribution. Many individual contact points ensure pleasant wearing in contrast to padding with large-surface contact. This model also convinces with regard to functionality: the molded material loops and tool eyelets suitable for any requirements are standard equipment. The IGNITE PROTON is certified as per EN 361 and EN 358. For persons who need to climb onto wind power plants, the "Ignite Proton Wind" is the ideal equipment that provides the benefits of an additionally included plastic slide plate, specifically designed for these applications.
IGNITE ARGON – that is the name of the new harness model in the field of rope access engineering that also focuses on ergonomics, ease of handling and high degree of wearing comfort. In developing this special safety harness in V-design, the specialists for fall protection equipment attached great importance to ergonomic adjustments and optimum freedom of movement. The extremely flexible leg joint is a major contributor to this achievement. In addition, the anatomically shaped leg and hip padding ensures that no pressure points develop when sitting in the safety harness even during long working days. With regard to safety, the "Ignite Argon" also provides an added feature: the eyelet in the chest area can either be used for self-securing or for rescue - just in case. The IGNITE ARGON meets the requirements as per EN 361 and EN 358. Moreover, it is certified as sit harness as per EN 813 for holding in a sitting working position when hanging freely.
