We are able to supply Safety Harness, Lanyards, Kernmantle Rope, Self Retracting Lifelines, Confined space entry, Height Safety Kits, Hardware connectors, accessories and tool lanyards.
All LINQ harnesses and lanyards are independently tested and certified by SAI Global in accordance with Australian and New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1891.1 2007. Whereas some brands will ‘self-certify’ or claim to use a third party assurance program, LINQ Height Safety invests in the most respected and much stricter SAI Global Certification process and Quality Assurance Program. Independent auditing of LINQ products by SAI Global ensures retailers, HSE officers and end users can have the utmost confidence that LINQ harnesses and lanyards meet or exceed the protection as required by Australian Standards. In fact, LINQ internal QC specifications require the product’s performance to exceed AS/NZS standards in some cases by as much as 400%. SAI Certification is displayed in the form of the SAI Global Standards Mark™ or “5 Ticks” logo representing reliability, quality assurance and safety – hallmarks of all LINQ Height Safety Gear, along with comfort, performance and affordable pricing. The following Australian and New Zealand Standards are recommended reading references: AS/NZS 1891.1 – Part 1: Safety belts and harnesses 2007 AS/NZS 1891.2 – Part 2: Horizontal lifeline and rail systems AS/NZS 1891.3 – Part 3: Fall arrest devices AS/NZS 1891.4 – Part 4: Selection, use and maintenance of industrial fall arrest systems and devices AS 2625: Safe working in a confined space AS/NZS 4488 (Series): Industrial rope access systems.
LINQ full body harnesses have been engineered and certified to provide the wearer with maximum safety, comfort and versatility while working at heights. Each LINQ Harness is designed to ensure the body can tolerate and survive all forces placed on it in the event of a fall. Furthermore, LINQ webbing straps and the fall arrest hardware are ergonomically designed to minimise impact on the human body in the event of a fall incident. LINQ harness webbing has been specifically woven to reduce slippage and ensure maximum buckle grip. Research and development analysed webbing and buckle design including material composition which was integral in achieving unrivalled comfort, safety and zero buckle slippage even during extended wear.
Engineered to minimise incidental harm in the event of a fall, the LINQ range boasts the addition of buckle padding to significantly reduce the risk of injury from harness buckles. Further protecting the wearer is the ergonomic placement of the chest strap, which is positioned below the breast line and the shoulder strap adjustment buckles. This considered chest strap placement is designed to minimise throat and facial injury in the event of a fall. Another feature of LINQ harnesses, also designed to reduce the risk of throat and facial injury, is the inclusion of extended belay loops in preference over a frontal chest D ring. LINQ belay loops provide a more balanced weight distribution than the more commonly used frontal chest D ring.
Further wearer protection is provided by the inclusion (as standard equipment) of LINQ’s standing step suspension trauma strap – designed to alleviate and minimise post fall Orthostatic Intolerance (suspension trauma syndrome). Enhancing the unique combination of harness design features, the LINQ range Complies to AS/NZS1891.1 Standards criteria, and we can prove it with Standards Certification! Independently audited by third party body SAI Global for AS/NZS 1891.1 for Standards adherence, the LINQ harness range boasts the quality assurance of the prestigious “5 ticks” mark of Certification.
