Miller Fall Protection, now part of the Bacou-Dalloz Group, has been manufacturing innovative safety products since 1945. They develop and test their products at their state-of-the-art, in-house testing facility, and back their products with a unique Limited Lifetime Warranty. Miller manufactures everything for complete personal fall arrest systems, and also designs and manufactures confined space and rescue equipment.

The Components of a Miller Fall Protection System

Miller's personal fall protection systems include three main components: harnesses, connecting devices, and anchorage connections. Miller's body harnesses incorporate their standard DuraFlex stretchable webbing and a DuPont finish that extends the life of the harness by up to 25 percent by repelling oil and water. They also feature dual-tab release mechanisms and a padded D-ring mount made of breathable materials for increased comfort during periods of extended wear.

Miller's shock-absorbing lanyards include features that are unique to Miller fall protection, such as warning flags that will automatically deploy once a lanyard has been involved in a fall, signaling the need for that lanyard to be replaced. The inner core of the lanyard functions as the center of shock absorption, and reduces arrest forces below 900 pounds, while the heavy outer jacket also serves as a backup lanyard.

Lastly, the Miller fall protection line also has a range of anchorage connectors, including the Edge Fall Protection System, which is Miller's answer to the dangers of leading edge deck construction. The Edge Fall Protection System operates by providing a horizontal boom and anchorage for vertical lifelines (for up to two workers at the same time), which also reduces the swing fall hazards you might get with a fixed cable lifeline system.
