Abaris International Growth – More staff / More brands / More products

Abaris International are pleased to welcome onboard another two staff members over the past few weeks, who will help to maintain our first class level of customer service as we continue to grow. Karen joins us with a huge amount of administration experience and will help to process the increasing number of orders, whilst Deborah brings a wealth of sales knowledge and all our customers can expect a call from her at some point in the not too distant future.

On the brand and product front, we have recently enhanced our less technical range of equipment and now offer the full range of the very competitively priced but very good quality Ridgegear products. Our RGH2 Two point (front and Rear D) fall arrest harness is proving incredibly popular with cherry picker / MEWP operators, with the adjustable lanyard being offered with a variety of different connector options (Maillon, Screwgate / double action / triple action karabiners). Ridgegear harnesses have two very great features including letterbox buckles which make donning / removing the harness very easy, and tear indicators which show when a harness has been subject to a fall which may have been sufficiently bad enough to damage the integrity of the harness.

Over the coming months you will see a big increase in the number of products on our website but in the meantime if you can’t see what you are looking for then please call the office and I am sure we will be able to get hold of it. Unlike alot of our competitors we stock items, lots of them! We offer a next day delivery as standard and you will also benefit from being sent a one hour window when the delivery will be made.

We continue to strive for service perfection combined with competitive prices, so please note we continue to offer to price match / beat any like for like quote from a competitor with the same products in stock. Just try us, we know you won’t be disappointed. Todays most recent feedback: “Thanks again for the high standard of customer service you and your team are displaying” “The only supplier we use for all our access equipment needs, great value, great service, just great..

Product review – Ridgegear 1 & 2 Point Fall Arrest Harnesses

First let’s destroy the myth, cheap kit is not always poor kit!

Ridgegear is currently incredibly good value AND good quality. We wouldn’t be selling it if we didn’t truly believe in the products and brand. Set up in 1998 but with a history in safety at height equipment dating back over 50 years, Ridgegear are part of Unitex Group which includes Marling Leek which manufactures the webbing with which the harnesses are made.

Abaris International offer the complete range of Ridgegear products, including the best and cheapest fall arrest harnesses on the market: the RGH1 1 point fall arrest harness, the RGH2 2 point fall arrest harness & the RGH5 a 2 point harness with a rescue attachment. These harnesses feature ‘letterbox’ buckles which make donning and removing the harness very easy and are much less fiddly to the standard twist out buckles.

The harnesses also have clever ‘tear indicators’, which make it easy to see if the harness has endured a shockload / fall large enough to potentially damage it.

Abaris International are happy to recommend these harnesses for use in work restraint and fall arrest. Ideal as a cherry picker / MEWP harness, used in combination with a work restraint lanyard.
