“Lighten up.” It’s what at-height workers have been trying to do for decades. That’s why we created the DBI-SALA® ExoFit™ Strata™ safety harness. It features a first-of-its-kind load distribution system that literally takes the weight off workers’ shoulders, resulting in a harness that is more comfortable, cooler and lighter to wear.
Climb ladder safety systems with ease and confidence. It’s simple with the new DBI-SALA® Lad-Saf™ X3 3/8" (9.5mm) detachable cable sleeve. This portable connection device connects the worker's harness to the ladder cable and glides freely up and down the cable as the worker climbs.
When seconds matter, you need a fall rescue plan that’s fast and effective—all while minimizing risk for others. Make self-rescue your first option with the DBI-SALA® Self-Rescue. It easily connects to your current safety harness and provides a way of escape from suspension. Coming soon.
