MSA Safety, industry-leading designer, manufacturer, and distributor of safety products the world over has launched its all-new V-Series™ harness line, representing “the next generation of fall protection.”
Jon Rowan, MSA’s Product Manager
for Fall Protection introduces the new harness line: “The V-FORM™ and V-FIT™
harnesses have been held up as a benchmark of quality ever since their introduction
three years ago. While this original crop of V-FORM and V-FIT harnesses is now
being phased out, their iconic names will remain; they’re just being replaced
with next generation products offering superior comfort, mobility, and
flexibility. We are also extending the V-Series harness line with the V-FORM+™,
and V-FLEX™ (the premium product of the range), enabling MSA to offer
best-in-class comfort at all price points.”
Each harness in the new V-Series
line includes an exclusive quick-connect racing-style buckle for a closer, more
comfortable-fitting harness eliminating the need for bulky chest straps or
“This new line of racing style
harnesses lets workers focus on their work instead of worrying about their harnesses,
because the safest fall protection harness is the one you’ll actually want to
wear,” says Jon.
“A racing-style buckle – unique to
MSA – makes for a more athletic cut, contouring the harness to the body for
improved upper torso movement on the job. Unburdened by ill-fitting,
uncomfortable harnesses, workers are given the freedom they need to do their
job more safely and effectively.”
Pull-down adjustments on each
harness allow workers to quickly and easily get the right fit that lasts
throughout the workday.
“Sizing is significant when it
comes to wearing fall protection harnesses,” continues Jon. “Yet unfortunately
workers can be sized incorrectly and/or wear harnesses that don’t provide
adjustability. This not only makes for a more uncomfortable harness –
potentially increasing the likelihood the worker won’t wear it at all – but it
can also have an adverse effect on the user in the event of a fall.”
Small details, big on safety
The harness line includes new
hex-style stitch patterns which make finding broken threads easier when
carrying out pre-use inspections, while coated webbing repels dirt, grease and
The V-FLEX™ boasts a patented leg
strap design to keep leg straps in place as webbing lays horizontally across
the thighs, creating a more natural fit, as well as a patent-pending hip
connection which “flexes” with the worker, reducing fatigue throughout the day.
The V-FIT, V-FLEX and V-FORM+ also
have a dedicated attachment point for Personal Fall Limiters, allowing for
quick and easy attachment, and keeps workers’ back D-ring free for other use.
“Small details add up to big
impressions and impressive results and that’s what you can see in this all-new
V-Series harness line,” concludes Jon. “We’ve left no stone unturned in our
mission to provide uncompromising comfort.”
