Skylotec Ignite harness range win design awards


Justifiably the new Skylotec Ignite harness range (comprising the Ion, Trion, Proton and Argon) has won the 2016 iF Design Award in the Product design category and is being awarded with the 2017 German Design Award Gold!

Ergonomics, comfort and design is very evident in the new Ignite range of harnesses from Skylotec. With four models, each available in 3 sizes, the Ignite harnesses are well thought-out, offer great comfort with shoulder and leg padding as standard, and are equipped with Skylotec’s patented adjusters which prevent loosening of the straps, as well as their new Oktalock click buckles which are low profile and high strength. Striking orange attachment points help guide the user to the correct place to attach lanyards to and thus limit the risk of incorrect attachment to non-loadbearing loops.

Skylotec Ignite Harnesses

At the basic end of the range is the Skylotec Ion which is a well made two point attachment fall arrest harness with a clever closure in the chest area which snaps shut magnetically. Moving up to the Trion, users benefit from a solid (rather than soft on the Ion) EN361 attachment point at the front, an Oktalock buckle on the chest and waist for ease of donning and removal, as well as side D’s (attachment points) for work positioning. For increased comfort and comparable (improved!) to the very popular ARG 51 Formotion harness, Skylotec have designed the Proton. Available in a wind version, the Proton Wind can also be bought with a stainless steel sternal attachment point suitable for use with HACA rails. Finally at the top end is the Ignite Argon, a beautiful looking, technical harness which meets EN361, EN813 and EN358, with a ventral attachment for attaching a descender.
