Norguard Industries a leading designer and manufacturer of fall protection equipment, announces today its first line of harnesses, lanyards and Noryards for women.
"With the increased number of women entering the work labour force, Norguard recognized the importance of designing a line of harnesses specifically with them in mind" said Tina Desjardins, Vice President of Operations at Norguard Industries. "These harnesses maintain the same high quality customers have come to know when wearing the Norguard brand, with modifications to the patterns to accommodate body structure and is available in an exclusive shade of pink. In addition to the harnesses, Norguard’s new Go Pro-GirlTM line will include lanyards and Noryards."

Each of the harnesses is CSA certified, and meets ANSI.

There are three types of connection options available; pass thru, tongue and buckle or Kwik-Loc buckles.
