LiftingSafetys' fall arrest equipment shop offers Fall Arrest harnesses online for all disciplines whilst working at height. There are two key types of fall arrest harness, the most popular being the full body harness for fall arrest applications. We also sell a selection of sit harnesses along with a handful of chest harnesses. All of the fall protection safety harnesses are categorised into groups making it easier for the customers to find the best product for their application. Harnesses are further split into sub categories by headings and industry sector (Welders Harness Harnesses and linesman’s harnesses), others by working environment (Atex and Hot work harnesses) and yet more by harness design for example with belt or by manufacturing standard! This is probably the most commonly used fall arrest category in our online shop. We offer a great choice of fall arrest harnesses made by leading manufacturers. Please feel free to contact us if you have an enquiry.
People often request fall arrest lanyards not realising that there are so many different types of lanyard to cater for different applications, disciplines and industries! There are also so many different types of terminations and karabiner types. We offer the most commonly requested fall arrest lanyards though there are actually three main types of lanyard! We offer fall arrest shock absorbing lanyards, restraint lanyards used to prevent the worker from being exposed to a potential fall when working at height (not fall arrest) and then there are work positioning lanyards (pole straps) which are designed to be used in conjunction with fall protection. A pole strap fits to a harness or belt (EN358) to provide support (Not shock absorbing). Pole straps are often used as adjustable restraint lanyards. We offer a massive variety of lanyard to choose from made by some of the world’s leading fall arrest equipment manufacturers. Single leg, twin leg and some elasticated and tie-back lanyards. There are also various compositions i.e. Rope lanyard and webbing type lanyard.
We offer fall arrest equipment kits to provide fall protection quickly and cost effectively, manufactured by Top Quality height safety equipment manufacturers. We offer the following manufacturers Protecta, Miller, Tractel, Yale, Sala, Ridgegear and more so that there is a kit option to suit almost all working at height disciplines. Our height safety kits incorporate inertia reels, fall arrest and restraint lanyards, fall arrest harnesses, pole straps and many more components. Different manufacturers use different names for their kits even though they contain very similar fall protection equipment; for this reason we list the height safety kits by manufacturer’s name, by industry sector and by the contents of the kit. This way we make it simple and quick to navigate to the most appropriate product for the application. We can also tailor/make-up special kits to suit your individual needs where required.
LiftingSafety offer an unrivalled collection of fall arrest inertia reel blocks online which are items of fall arrest equipment also referred to as fall arrest Inertia reels, Self-retracting life Lines (SRL and SRL's) and Personal Fall Limiters (PFL, PFL's, fall arrest pulleys). We offer small and large, lightweight and robust options to suit all applications. Inertia reels are great for minimizing the distance of the fall and therefor reduce the consequence of the fall which is typically the injury caused by a fall. The PFL personal fall arrestors are small, and light weight, ideal for everyday use. We offer long length inertia reels up to 60 metre cable length and options with Atex (Spark resistant) approval. We supply SRL's with an integrated rescue winch to retrieve the casualty after a fall has occurred. This rescue winch raises/lowers the casualty to safety.
This category contains machines certified for lifting persons, either to gain access /egress or for casualty rescue applications after a fall. It is sometimes difficult to choose the best liftinghoist (winch) to suit an application, if in doubt please ask our technical staff for the best solution. Things to consider when choosing a man-riding winch are: application, anchorage point, fibre or steel rope, length of rope required, speed of lift required, duty factor (how often it will be used) physical size and weight, environment - please phone for help and assistance. Man-riding hoists are often referred to as a man-riding winch or a rescue winch though this is technically incorrect as a winch is for pulling applications and a hoist used for lifting. We offer man-riding hoists from many top quality fall arrest equipment manufacturers including Tractel, Miller, Yale, Ridgegear, Sala, Protecta and more.
Some products are standard as supplied direct from the manufacturers though we also have the ability to design and manufacture Special Bespoke items such as Davit Arms, Tripods and Gantries. Our range of fall arrest davit arms is exceptional and a more all-inclusive range than offered by any of our competitors. There is a vast range that we design and manufacture to meet with our customers’ requirements. It’s a very similar situation with our lightweight aluminium man-riding gantries. Fall arrest equipment Systems and Man-Riding Equipment in this category is sub divided into product types so that the customer can quickly find to compare before deciding on the most appropriate solution. Complete fall arrest systems that are permanently installed, fall arrest lifelines and individual components / products are all in this group of equipment, some manually operated and others having electric hoists. Please contact us is you have a unique requirement! Let us know if you cannot see a solution to your working at height problem as we have many new products waiting to be listed online.
Anchorage devices include fall arrest equipment made to the EN795 standard, protection against falls from height and makes them an approved anchorage point for connection to fall arrest lanyard, restraint lanyard, rescue kit or emergency evacuation system. We offer a wide variety of products from many top quality height safety manufacturers including Sala, Tractel, Miller, Ridgegear and Protecta and North Safety etc... There is great choice of products and options on this range, displayed on our user friendly website, making this category one of the best online anywhere for fall arrest anchorage devices. Anchorages can be permanently fixed (installed systems) or mobile (portable) dependant on the users requirements. Please note that it is the responsibility of the competent person to make sure the structure to which the anchor is connected to has enough strength and stability to arrest a fall.
Fall arrest Karabiners are also known as connecting links, carabiners, mallions, scaffold hooks, scaff hooks, rebar hook, snap hooks, fall arrest hooks, oval links and delta links (and probably more). Carabiners must be double action opening for the gate to open. This is a safety prerequisite; the reason is to prevent the karabiner from being accidently opened. We offer many different sizes and shapes from all the quality height safety manufacturers (Miller, Sala, Protecta and Ridgegear) and made from different materials such as stainless steel, aluminium and corrosion resistant steel. With this great selection and our web sites great navigation aids our customer’s should easily find a karabiner suitable for their working at height scenario.
Our LiftingSafety Fall arrest equipment rescue category is very enlightening and covers two main disciplines for people working at height. We sell rescue equipment for retrieval/rescuing a fallen person. To comply with the working at height directive the employer must provide a rescue plan and this means providing the equipment and training to enable the person fallen to be speedily rescued. Working at height also includes working below ground! A rescue plan must also be in place for persons not directly exposed to a fall when there is no practical means of egress should the person become incapacitated; for example rescue from an overhead crane even if the crane bridge is fitted with hand rails! Rescue systems can be supplied to remotely rescue a casualty without exposing the rescuer to a potential fall by using a remote extending rescue pole though it also means that there is no need to use rope access techniques to connect to the fallen worker to the rescue tackle. Emergency evacuation is when the worker needs to egress quickly, for example if emergency escape from an oil platform or working on a crane bridge and there is a fire in the working area. We offer a very good range of kits and equipment for both rescue and for self-evacuation for premium height safety manufacturers so please consider contacting us for a competitive quotation.
We offer online loads more fall arrest equipment in this category for people working at height. These products are often critical to those working at height making this one of our most active categories with our customers. In this section are height safety accessories, industrial climbing ropes and height safety helmets. We offer specialist sections promoting welding, cutting and grinding height safety and fall arrest equipment as well as fall arrest/working at height training courses. One of our most popular sections is the black fall arrest equipment where low visibility is needed for example in the military or special forces and also commonly often used by the theatre industry where a low-visibility/hidden harness is needed.
