Petzl’s new factory-assembled MEWP (mobile elevating work platform) kits provide a simple, ready-to-use, and ANSI-compliant fall protection solution for workers operating a boom lift, scissor lift, bucket truck, or other MEWPs. Each kit features a fall arrest harness, a fall arrest lanyard with connectors pre-installed on each end, and a bag for easy transportation and storing of the kit.
Installation is quick and easy; simply attach the carabiner on the shock-absorber end to the fall arrest attachment point on the NEWTON harness, and the carabiner on the other end to the approved fall arrest anchor point in the MEWP.
Depending on your needs and harness size, there are three kits to choose from: NEWTON MEWP Kit, NEWTON FAST MEWP Kit, and NEWTON EASYFIT MEWP Kit.
Each harness includes an anodized aluminum dorsal attachment point, a textile dorsal attachment point, and a textile sternal attachment point. All harnesses in the NEWTON range are certified to meet the ANSI Z359.11 standard and OHSA regulations.
Fall Arrest Lanyard:
The ABSORBICA-I lanyards feature a compact energy absorber, which provides energy absorption in case of a fall and limits the arresting force on the worker, in accordance with the ANSI standard.
There are two lanyards available:
ABSORBICA-I 150 (fixed length with elasticized arm)
ABSORBICA-I VARIO (adjustable between 3 ft. and 5 ft.)
Each lanyard comes pre-assembled with two Bm’D connectors (ANSI Z359.12 compliant) and two CAPTIV positioning bars, allowing it to meet the ANSI Z359.13 standard with no manual assembly required. If you already own a fall arrest harness, these pre-assembled lanyards are available for purchase separately.
Each MEWP kit comes with a BUCKET 15 bag to store and transport the kit. The BUCKET features a roll top closure, two large handles for carrying by hand, and an external zippered pocket. It is made of high-strength TPU tarp material and is resistant to UV exposure (doesn’t fade), oil, grease, and high and low temperatures.
