The latest rope access harness - Petzl Astro

Petzl have just unveiled their latest harness for use in rope access, at the A + A show - Düsseldorf. The new Petzl Astro will feature Petzl's latest buckle design, a whole new ventral attachment system and more...

One change will particularly please anyone who dislikes the smaller Croll, fitted to the Avao Bod Croll Fast. The nice people at Petzl brought back the larger Croll as previously fitted. This will certainly make it easier to install / remove a rope whilst working in suspension.

Petzl have improved the back support and re-worked the shoulder harness. Petzl's new FAST LT (leg loops) & DoubleBack PLUS (shoulders & waist) buckles have also been included to allow optimal adjustment. It's good to see Petzl continually developing their harnesses in this area, making them easier and more efficient to use.

Chunky new side D attachment points made of webbing and plastic. Have saved the harness excess weight, previously carried when using the old side D rings.

The Petzl Astro will be the only harness in their range for 2018 to feature the new openable ventral attachment point. This new attachment point is designed to allow the seamless integration of multiple items to a single attachment point, as shown in the image. If you want to see how the openable part happens... watch our video Petzl Astro Openable Attachment Point. Another nifty feature; the Podium Seat will attach via small stainless shackles to either side of the attachment bar.

It goes without saying that the Petzl Astro will feature all the tool loops and slots you can imagine.

Anglo Access will have stock of new Astro harnesses as soon as they are available in the UK.
