gear is a separate safety decision. But, Duckbill's MobilityMax
successfully merges productivity and safety.

Pad into a comfortable, safe, flexible and multi-purpose

MobilityMax is integrated seamlessly onto
but does not impinge, abrade or interfere with the materials,
design, integrity or functionality of the safety features
of the harness itself because it syncs-up with the harness
at the shoulder pads and on the rear yoke with our DorsalDock.
We are essentially making our Agility
Platform available for use with the
fall protection gear. Plus our front and rear struts provide
an additional degree of suspension to the harness itself
thereby aiding in the feel of the weight being carried.
Additionally, modules can be worn on the front struts allowing
easy access to commonly used equipment.

behaves like part of an integrated whole yet it remains
a separate unit and therefore can work with any harness
gear configuration with or without a padded back
belt with or without side D-rings etc.
The MobilityMax chassis itself consists of
integrated front struts, the DorsalDock and
rear struts and our MobilityMax anchor and
is to that chassis that all of the Duckbill modules are
attached utilizing our MaxCon clamshell docking
technology. Since all of the modules dock onto the MobilityMax
platform and not onto the fall protection harness itself,
MobilityMax truly functions as a single integrated
Part of our chassis is a belt extender which adds the necessary
circumference to our outer belt when wearing it with the
harness, yet once the extender is removed, the platform
can easily be worn without the harness.
addition, two belt keepers with a steel snap-hook are included.
The keepers serve a dual purpose. First, when taking the

they aid in securing the outer belt to the inner belt when
heavy gear is worn. And secondly, the snap hook offers convenient
hanging of some tools.

don't make fall protection harnesses. But we do make them
far more functional and empower the people who wear them
to be more productive. Other companies make the tools, Duckbill
makes using and carrying them easier.
An advantage of our strategy is improved tool protection
and reduced loss. But most of the benefits go straight to
the tradesmen carrying the tools. Benefits like a
platform that allows for the use of vertical space
(on our front vertical struts). Benefits like
the ability to climb without any tools hindering you.
(With our MaxCon docking, once positioned, the modules
will not shift or slide on the belt allowing for easy and
safe hoisting of your utility belt.) Benefits like
improved comfort during and after the work day. (Because
of our 360° cross-linking contact, stability and suspendability
is achieved.) And benefits like customized
weight allocation to fit the toll and task mix. (Which
lead to less fatigue, less muscular skeletal pain and markedly
improved personal productivity.)
