Rigging & Access Body Harness

The PBH05-series harness (PBH05, PBH05X, PBH05-RD, PBH05XRD) is Checkmate’s premium Rope Access Harness designed for abseil, rigging and suspended work tasks.

Product Information:

The PBH05-series is designed to support the body and distribute the forces to prevent serious injury and keep the worker in a safe position ready for rescue in the event of a fall. Certified fall arrest points are clearly marked with an A, the rear “D” should always be your primary

anchorage, although front “D” connection is permitted for fall arrest but is primarily for work positioning. Side “D” are for work positioning only. The front suspension “D” is to be used for suspended work and when used as a sit harness. The PBH5X and PBH5X-RD are supplied

with two front attachments for attachment of a croll. Two loops located near the front suspension “D” allow the user to safely connect to a suspension seat.

Standard Fall Arrest & Work Positioning Body Harness

The general and work positioning harnesses are designed to be universal and flexible when it comes to ‘typical’ work tasks. The most popular harnesses, simple, versatile, tough and durable, packed with technology including fall indicators, wear indicating webbing and the unique trapezoidal buckles as standard, with up to two-fall arrest connections and two side “D’s”, are suitable for general applications, work positioning, telecommunication, pole and tower work. These types are lightweight, easy to adjust and don.

Our selections of work positioning harnesses are excellent at supporting both key areas and they have specially developed padding systems that reduce the effect of fitting compression. The waist belt is deep, ergonomically designed, made of built up layers of breathable materials and supported by a 65mm webbing strap.
