I certainly do. We use DBI-Sala safety equipment despite the POOR sales rep and my local supplier, the equipment is first rate. When one is selecting devices for LIFE SAVING WORK safety at the cost of ~2K for 2 persons, I would have thought their rep would have been more attentive. We even called him and asked for to bring the type of harness we were interested in but it seemed he was more interested in his smart phone, NOT Salas liability for wrong harnesses or incorrect fit.
We use harnesses that have front and rear d rings, retractable 9' lanyards + the horizontal life line that makes working with another person quite easy. The life line we use is rated for no more then 2 persons but they do have other ones available.
The harness have very easy adjustment that are lockable w/ w/o shoulder padding., good fit & light weight.
The biggest problem we had was again the LACK (or willingness to educate) of knowledgable sales reps! Once you place the order you're stuck w/ what you get.
This is why I was/am so hesitant to recommend this company NOT the quality, but the lack interest of their NE sales rep in regards to selling us the right gear, and the fitting & training
Additional info please feel free to contact me off list, I do get pissed at the lack of their support so I have spent quite a bit of time researching this stuff.
The Home Depot safety harnesses are very clumsy to work in, difficult to adjust for different workers and don?t easily adapt for multiple workers. Is there any consensus as to the best safety equipment for a crew of four or five on a roof? Thanks all.
