Ocean Safety has become a distributor for Petzl safety equipment.

The range featured by Ocean Safety, aimed primarily at the windfarm market but with uses beyond, comprises two fall arrest harnesses, a safety helmet and a pair of headlamps.

“We are delighted with the addition of the Petzl brand to our range of safety products,” said Mark Acaster, sales manager at Ocean Safety. “Petzl has a strong reputation in the commercial maritime sector. Their safety equipment can also be used for working aloft on superyacht rigs and other marine applications.”

Arrest harnesses

The Petzl Volt Wind Fall Arrest Harness has protectors to prevent strap wear when moving around inside the wind turbine tower and a ladder climb attachment point for attaching the trolley of a rail or cable-based fall protection system. It has side attachment points for attaching a positioning lanyard for use in double mode.

The Avao Bod Fast (Europoean) Arrest Harness has a central attachment point for a descender or positioning lanyard for use in single mode and lateral attachment points for use in double mode. The restraint lanyard attaches at the rear. Both harnesses have dorsal and sternal attachment points for a fall arrest system attachment and comply with European and Russian standards.

Helmet and headlamps

The Petzl Vertex VentComfort Helmet is entirely modular and can integrate a headlamp, hearing protection and multiple accessories. The Tactikka Core hybrid headlamp is rechargeable through a USB port but can also use standard AAA batteries. Its output is 350 lumens and is weather resistant. The lighter weight E+Lite Ultra Compact headlamp is waterproof to depths of 1m for 30 minutes and has an output of 50 lumens.
