Miller releases new fall arrest equipmentPosted on 17/04/2008
US personal protective equipment manufacturer (PPE) Miller has unveiled a new fall protection application.
The company's new Skygrip Temporary Horizontal Lifeline System has been designed to allow two workers per span, while it can also take up to six people per system.
Designed for use when overhead fall protection anchorage is not available, the lightweight system has interchangeable bases for use on both steel and concrete applications.
It also features an energy absorber and stanchions that can be utilised as single point anchorages.
The launch of the new fall arrest equipment has come after another PPE manufacturer unveiled a new range of hearing protection.
Released under its Howard Leight brand, Sperian Protection's new bright green Thunder T2HV Hi-Visibility earmuffs are designed to make it easier for people to see those working in low-lit areas or poor weather.
The hearing protection, which does not conduct electricity, also features snap-in ear cushions and a ventilated head band to reduce the amount of pressure applied to a user's head.
