Oct 19, 2011 12:50 PM
Capital Safety announces a new extension to its DBI-SALA ExoFit NEX product line: the ExoFit NEX Arc Flash harnesses. These harnesses incorporate Nomex/Kevlar technology into their design, and feature flame-resistant and non-conductive properties, making them suitable for use in any industry that involves exposure to high-voltage electricity or hot work.
The new harnesses are tested to perform in accordance with the recently updated ASTM F887-11 arc flash standard specification for personal climbing equipment, as well as ANSI Z359.1 and CSA requirements. ExoFit NEX Arc Flash harnesses are a result of ongoing research and development within the ExoFit NEX line, and incorporate technical advancements in materials and features.
The harnesses are equipped with flame-resistant webbing; an exterior made with Nomex, featuring a Kevlar core and thread that provides 7,000-lb strength and ultimate flame resistance. The built-in arc flash rated trauma straps provide an adjustable, continuous loop that minimizes suspension trauma. Integrated insulators behind exposed hardware prevent contact with the body.
The non-conductive, lightweight PVC-coated aluminum D-rings are provided by DBI-SALA. All featured hardware on the ExoFit NEX Arc Flash harness offer comfort and security.
Its design employs i-Safe technology, which allows it to be tracked in inventory and tagged with usage data. These harnesses meet all applicable industry standards, including OSHA, ANSI, CSA, and ASTM.
