The 8-inch leather conductive boot offers the lineman both comfort and protection. The boots conform to ASTM F2413 standards for impact and compression on safety toe cap as well as being puncture resistant. This boot has a black conductive sole connected to a metallic conductive strap leading up to a conductive snap fitting at the top of the boot. Also provided is a conductive strap to connect the boot snap fitting to a conductive suit or the leg strap.
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.
Full Body Harnesses
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
Bashlin’s 50 Series pole straps are offered here with the “L” style snaphook which has lengthy field experience. It has a lock on the back to be released prior to opening the gate.
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.
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.
