Conductive Suit & Static Belt
Conductive Suit
Conductive Suit

Condutive Suit EHV Barehand Conductive Suit puts the lineman on the job ...
Born of a need to let the lineman get closer to his work, Chance EHV Barehand Conductive Clothing replaces hand tools on the end of 16-foot Epoxiglas® poles; the clothing is bonded to the conductor, placing the lineman within the field of electricity, not as a conductor himself but insulated by Chance Epoxiglas® products (ladders, platforms, etc.), and allows him to work with his hand on the conductor hardware. Thus, transmission line maintenance efficiency and effectiveness are advanced without endangering the lineman and without interrupting customer service.
For work on voltages through 765 kV, the two-piece con­ductive suit is made of a blend of Nomex aramid flame resistant fiber and microscopic stainless steel fiber. A Zepel finish is applied to repel water. Analysis and tests show the material:
- is extremely strong and tear resistant.
- meets or exceeds IEC 895 Specification for conductive clothing.
- does not degrade with time or number of washings.
Overcast stitching is used on all major seams for integrity, durability and resistance to fraying. Tails and appendages are attached by separate panels with multiple square and "x" stitches for integrity.
Velcro pads are located on the strong nylon webbing suspender harness and the cuffs of the jacket and pants, to provide rapid versatile fitting. Corrosion resistant snap fittings on the jacket and pants make it easy to suit up. The large hood, with drawstring, fits over any standard helmet.

Static Belt

STATIC BELT
The belt when worn by the linemen working on EHV structure serves as a continuous ground to minimize static discomfort while working near energized lines. The belt, made of the same material as Chance Conductive Suits, should be buckled snugly around the waist, next to bare skin and has a six-foot lead, that can be attached to the steel structure.

Conductive Boots
Conductive Boots

The Chance 8-inch leather conductive boot offers the lineman both comfort and protection. The boot meets all ANSI Specifications for conductive footwear.
This boot has a leg harness with a black conductive sole that has a wire molded into the rubber and leading up the back with the conductive rubber strap covering to a conductive snap fitting at the top of the boot. There is an additional conductive boot strap to be secured through a snap fitting from the boot to a conductive suit or to the leg strap. This connection again, has a wire built into a nylon and conductive rubber strap.
Mechanical features.
Boot upper is made of top quality, high oil content leather. Resists water. Flexes better. Lasts longer. Stitching and brown finish are finely crafted. It meets specifications for ANSI Class 75 steel toe footwear (75 lb. crush strength) and has a flexible full stainless steel inner sole, 400 pound test. The heel counter is molded into the sole to prevent its pulling away. The welt is neoprene, not rubber or leather, to resist cracking.
The sole is vulcanized under 20,000 pounds of pressure to the welt, not to upper. This makes the sole more flexible and helps prevent it from separating from upper. A tempered steel shank is built-in for proper arch support.
Electrical features.
The Chance boot meets ANSI Specifications Z41 for safety-toe footwear. They are manufactured to a specification of less than 10,000 ohms from the top of the leg strap to the heel of the boot. 100% inspection and testing is conducted on each boot as part of the manufacturing process.

Sizing
Proper sizing is one of the most important considerations in the purchase of a lineman's tool belt. An improperly sized belt is uncomfortable and may cause an accident or injury.
Bashlin tools belts are measured by the "D" size, which is the distance between the heels of the D-rings.
All linemen's tool belts must be ordered according to the "D" size.
To Find Your "D" Size

  1. Locate the point where the heel of the "D" ring should rest. As the photo illustrates, this is approximately 4" down from the top of the hip bone.
  2. Begin to measure from this point. Measure around the buttocks to the same point on the opposite side.

When a properly sized tool belt is worn, the D-rings will point nearly straight ahead and the tongue adjustment will be in the center holes as shown inn Photo 3.

Never carry wire, tools, or anything other than the "positioning" strap in the D-rings of a tool belt. Foreign objects carried in the D-rings may cause the snap to malfunction, and accidental disengagement to occur.

Always visually confirm the strap is on the D-ring with the gate closed and locked before allowing the strap to support your body weight. Do not just listen for the "click".

The 50 series straps have red wear indicators in the center to help determine when it is time to replace them. When you see red it is time to remove the strap from service.

Full Body Harnesses
  1. The user must be properly trained prior to using Bashlin products.
  2. Use the proper product for the job.
  3. Inspect the harness before each use.
  4. Wear the harness tight. It must be tight enough that the buckles hold the material properly and will not disengage accidentally. If the harness is loose, the material can hook on items in the work area, or in the worst case will not perform properly in the event of an arrested fall.
  5. Check the buckles, and tighten the straps each time before going aloft.
  6. Store the harness properly in a storage bag for longer wear.

Bashlin harnesses are normally made from 10,000 lb. test woven nylon web. The webbing is in contrasting colors (usually orange on the torso and black on the legs) for easier donning. They meet or exceed all appropriate ANSI, ASTM, and OSHA requirements. The hardware features a corrosion resistant coating. The splices are lock stitched with nylon thread of a contrasting color for easy inspection. Each standard harness is tagged per ANSI/ASTM requirements with the labels shown.

Bashlin harnesses must be sized and adjusted properly to function properly.
Sizing: The Bashlin harness is sized according to the torso of the individual. This involves measuring the height and the chest, then finding the correct size on the chart, according to the style of the harness. Height is the first consideration. However, if the chest measurement is too large for the corresponding height, move to the larger size. If the chest measurement is too small for the corresponding height, choose the size dictated by the height.

Fall Arrest Lanyards

Bashlin shock absorbing 2000 Series lanyards are recommended for most fall arrest applications. They include an integral polyester core that absorbs forces as it expands.
WARNING
Limiting the lanyard length to 6' will not ensure a free fall of 6' or less. The lanyard length, anchor point and work location together will determine the free fall distance.
CAUTION
Lanyards may be connected to D-Rings on harnesses with web/rope loops, and properly dimensioned carabiners or snaphooks. 3" nylon loop back attachments require web/rope loops or properly dimensioned carabiners. Snaphooks are not to be used with such attachment points.
