Harnessless safety belts (for holding)
Beltless belts (for holding)
Personal protective equipment should not be neglected during work. Especially when working at height, when it is imperative to use a safety harness. This is obvious to all people who work on weight. Unfortunately, when it comes to work on a plane a few meters from the edge, workers sometimes ignore the rules, relying on their physical fitness and coordination. But even the highest qualification cannot protect against sudden gusts of wind, jolts or dizziness. Therefore, in order to prevent getting into the risk zone, it is imperative to use strapless belts.
Scope of application of safety beltless belts
Safety harness without straps can be used:
To hold. In this case, the main task of a safety harness without straps is not to protect the worker from falling, but not to allow him to be in a place from where he can fall. Strapless belay wraps around the body with a belt above the waist, and keeps you at a safe distance from the edge. With such insurance, an employee, with all his might, will not be able to end up in the danger zone – even if he stumbles, falls or loses consciousness.
For positioning. In this case, the package includes a wide sash (not less than 80 mm), which allows you to work comfortably in a support. Such sashes necessarily have small holes that do not allow the back to sweat.
But if it is supposed to work in places where a fall is possible, the beltless belt cannot be used, since its design does not provide for the protection of the spine during a sharp jerk. This places too much stress on the lumbar region and the worker may be seriously injured.
How does the strapless safety belt work?
This type of belay is a wide belt with a metal buckle, side steel fasteners to which a sling is attached, and a sash. It can also be made in the form of a climbing gazebo – these are needed for working while sitting. The sling is made from nylon tapes or ropes, as well as from steel cables or chains. Steel slings are required when dealing with high temperatures – for example, during gas welding.
The buckle of protection allows you to adjust the girth and tightly fix the belay on the body. Reinforced fasteners are made so that they can be easily opened and closed with one hand, even with a warm mitten. The fittings are made of durable metal alloys with anti-corrosion spraying. If traces of rust appear on the mountings, they must not be used.
