Product Advisory

  • This is not a recall, the 3M™ DBI-SALA® Delta™, ExoFit™, ExoFit™ Plus & ExoFit™ XP Cross Over Style Harnesses remain safe for use.

    As part of 3M Fall Protection’s ongoing commitment to delivering high quality safety equipment, we are notifying our customers of the following information related to the 3M™ DBI-SALA® Delta™, ExoFit™, ExoFit™ Plus & ExoFit™ XP Cross Over Style Harnesses portfolios. During internal testing of certain 3M™ DBI-SALA® Delta™, ExoFit™, ExoFit™ Plus & ExoFit™ XP Cross Over Style Harness models, we found that a percentage of tested units did not meet the ANSI Z359.11, Section 3.2.2.3.1 dynamic requirement on the front (sternal) D-ring and CSA Z259.10-18, Section 6.2.2.4 dynamic requirements for Class L (sternal) full body harnesses. This test and the resulting forces are not representative of what would be seen in real world application (i.e. when attached to a vertical cable sleeve with an energy absorbing device).

    ** The 3M™ DBI-SALA® Delta™, ExoFit™, ExoFit™ Plus & ExoFit™ XP Cross Over Style Harnesses remain safe for use. In all tests, these harnesses meet all static requirements and dynamic testing that simulates a real-world application. Variability in the supplied D-ring contributed to the test results seen. This issue has been corrected on harnesses produced after May 1, 2021. We are not aware of any accidents, injuries, or customer complaints related to the condition described above. **
