All Hands Fire Equipment released the FDNY firefighter-designed Gemtor 543NYC Class II / Class III conversion harness. The harness lets a user convert from a Class II harness to a Class III harness.
The Gemtor 543NYC harness includes a fixed front waist strap, rear adjustments on the leg straps and other hardware. The harness has attachment points at the sternum, two on the A-frame (also called the handle) and a rear dorsal attachment point—all rated to NFPA, OSHA and ANSI standards. The A-frame includes a sliding D-ring to attach to a personal escape system and a triple-action aluminum carabiner. It is constructed with 1 ¾” wide nylon webbing stitched with nylon thread.
