Petzl, manufacturer of professional safety equipment, will release an updated VOLT® harness line this March. The VOLT harness line is designed to provide fall protection and comfortable work positioning for those working on towers or inside wind turbines.
Both models, the VOLT and VOLT WIND® are easy to put on and take off with FAST LT® automatic buckles on the waist belt and leg loops. The lightweight and breathable material on the wide, semi-rigid waist belt and leg loops maximizes air flow while also providing support.
Storage systems on each shoulder strap for the fall arrest lanyards keeps the connectors stored away and, in the event of a fall, will release so the absorbers can deploy.
The VOLT model, designed for work on towers and antennas, is constructed with equipment loops along the waist belt for easy tool organization. The VOLT WIND model, designed for work inside wind turbine towers, has a dorsal wear protector to reduce wear along the straps. In addition to the harnesses, the seat for VOLT harnesses was also updated to provide more comfort while working in suspension.
