Re: Roofing safety equipment


We ordered ours online, I don't remember the brand offhand, but they use prussik knots instead of metal contraptions to clamp the safety line, and the air hoses are built in to the rope. The harnesses are very comfortable, and have tool bags built in for convenience.

Comfortable, air line and tool bags built in means the guys won't complain so much about hooking up

I think they are super anchor, but I could be mistaken.

Re: Roofing safety equipment


I live in Maine and the Canadians come down here to buy their safety equipment. Everything is more expensive up there....why on would you want your equipment from up there? Do you have a specific reason?

It would be the "Canadian" thing to do.

Because it is CSA approved, and that is the only thing safety or fall arrest inspectors will accept. Chances are it is cheaper because it doesn't have CSA approval.

I doubt Prussiks are osha approved. Too much room for Human Error. Im a rock/Ice climber and I ue them all the time. Id way rather be responsible for my own safety with my equipment than with the overengineered crap from safety guys. But Petzal makes decent stuff... I hate rope grabs, just when you think you master them they jam up...

Re: Roofing safety equipment


Not sure if it helps but I've bought from Rock Supply online in the past and they are great to work with. At least in the US it's free shipping over $300.
