Designed in conjunction with transmission line rope access pioneer, Reed Thorne of Ropes That Rescue and other western utilities like Pacific Gas & Electric, Yates has designed the 390FA harness to meet the needs of the transmission tower worker who is now utilizing rope access techniques. The 390FRA Harness is designed and recommended for helicopter external load short haul work. The 390FRA harness has a more flexible waist pad system than the 390FRC Harness. This harness was specifically designed with electric utilities helicopter short-haul programs in mind. The 390FRA Rope Access Lineman Harness meets the stringent requirements of ASTM F887-05 Electric Arc-Flash rating for personal climbing equipment. Many new features are seen in the New 390FRA harness. ANSI carabiner to attach chest to seat. Constructed from webbing which is a blend of Nomex in the exterior for comfort and durability and Kevlar in the interior for strength. Specially designed for the professional transmission tower worker. Wide anatomical waist pad for increased comfort and added back support. Modular work/tool pouch system allows the user to customize each harness to their own arrangement. Easily adjustable for variations in clothing by use of camlock and cobra buckles. Attachment points at waist, hips, chest, back (lumbar) and back (dorsal). New U shaped rear shoulder design distributes the load evenly across the neck of the user. Milled Aluminum COBRA® buckles by AUSTRIALPIN™ now used to connect waist belt to waist pad and to connect leg buckles for easy donning. COBRA buckles are ANSI Z359.1 -2007 certified. Weight 7lb. Petzl S & L Auxillary Caritool Tool Holders and Yates Tool Holsters sold separately.
Trapezoid screw link and new adjustable sling to attach the Petzl Croll sold separately.(Part#1781CROLL $30).
NOTICE: 390FRA Harness is only recommended for use in a work environment where Arc-Flash hazard exists. For daily work use in non-energized situations the standard 390RTR harness is recommended. The Nylon webbing which 390RTR the harness is constructed with is much more durable and abrasion-resistant than the Nomex/Kevlar webbing used in the construction of the 390FRA Harness.
NEW 390FRA Harness for 2015 now comes in Mesh/Cordura duffle bag. Duffel bag designed to breathe because the top portion is constructed using heavy-duty mesh material.
