A Breakdown of the New ExoFit STRATA™ Safety Harness

By Tim Thompson, Product Manager – Soft Goods, Capital Safety

Whether you’re a safety manager, an at-height worker, or you’re just passionate about personal protection equipment like I am, you’ve likely heard about our latest project: the DBI-SALA® ExoFit STRATA™. We’ve dubbed it the lightest-wearing, most comfortable, truly innovative safety harness ever made—and we went to great lengths to back those claims up, but we’ll touch on that more later this month.

For now, let’s break down the ExoFit STRATA’s six key features that are really going to make the difference for you out in the field:

1. LIFTech™ load distribution system: Our customers were the driving force behind the development of the ExoFit STRATA. Many were asking for a harness that incorporated all of the best safety features while simply making it weigh less. Obviously we couldn’t just magically make it weigh nothing, but we knew there had to be a way to make it feel like that.The result was the LIFTech load distribution system: a fully integrated “spine” inspired by advancements in the backpacking industry. LIFTech takes the majority of the weight off your shoulders and redistributes it to your midsection—around your center of gravity—where your leg muscles can help support it, reducing the weight on your shoulders by up to 85%! It’s likely the most literal example of “weight off your shoulders” that has ever existed.

2. PolarMesh™ padding: If you’re used to working in construction, chances are good that you’re used to the heat—from the sun, the physical activity, the equipment, the list goes on. We knew that adding something like LIFTech would only be worthwhile if it didn’t add to your internal body temperature. To solve this, we developed PolarMesh padding, a highly breathable material located on the back of the harness, opposite of the LIFTech system. It ensures optimal airflow to your back so you stay cool even when you have to wear your STRATA for long periods of time.

3. EZ-Link™ quick SRL adapter: When you find yourself doing something over and over again in a single workday, it just makes sense to simplify that process as much as possible. That’s why the ExoFit STRATA features an EZ-Link quick SRL adapter, which reduces connecting & disconnecting personal SRL’s by up to 80%! This enables incredibly easy and accessible connection and disconnection of your personal SRL, like the Nano-Lok™.

4. Tri-Lock Revolver™ connectors: Revolver connectors are a small yet special addition to the ExoFit STRATA that serve two purposes. First, they store excess webbing out of your way to minimize inconveniences. Second, they add an extra layer of security around your legs so your harness doesn’t come loose unexpectedly.

5. Revolver™ vertical torso adjusters: Using the same technology, the Revolver vertical torso adjusters allow you to store excess webbing and easily adjust the fit of your harness while keeping it locked in place otherwise.

6. Tech-Lite™ aluminum D-rings: The standup dorsal Tech-Lite D-ring and side D-rings are all crafted from sturdy yet surprisingly lightweight aluminum to ensure optimal reliability without adding significant weight to the harness.

These are just a few of the many reasons why your next harness purchase should be an easy decision. But don’t take my word for it—feel the difference when you LIGHTEN UP with the Exofit STRATA.
