Capital Safety Introduces The Harness Hydration System

CARROS, France — July, 2007 — DBI-SALA, a Capital Safety brand, introduces the Hydration System for Full Body Harnesses. This compact system connects to any DBI-SALA harness and holds 1.5 litres of liquid for added worker safety and productivity.

The DBI-SALA Hydration System is designed to effortlessly clip to the back of any harness, below the D-ring, to keep a fluid source close to the body without getting in the worker’s way. A one-buckle strap slides beneath the dorsal webbing and clips together securely, while the quick snaps hold the pack in place. Adjusting the system is unnecessary as it positions itself to look and feel like part of the harness.

“Everyone knows that it’s important to stay hydrated, especially when working outside,” says Peter Blackburn, Product Manager with Capital Safety. “Those working at heights, however, often don’t have convenient access to a water source. The harness hydration system is an ideal solution that will maintain productivity and avoid the negative health effects of dehydration.”

The harness hydration system’s zip-up nylon carrier and insulated drink tube cover ensure the liquid remains at the right temperature from the reservoir to the worker’s mouth. The anti-microbial, taste-free tubing and reservoir keep liquid fresh at all times. The 95 cm drink tube can emerge from dual hose ports for access on either shoulder, while the tube clip prevents entanglement and snaps free when snagged. This clip keeps the no-leak bite valve near the worker’s mouth for hands-free access. A durable cover caps the mouth piece to keep out dirt and prevent accidental damage.

Capital Safety, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of height safety and fall protection equipment with nine operating sites worldwide, is home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands. All of Capital Safety’s fall protection and rescue systems are supported by the best in training, technical assistance and customer service in the industry.
