WIRE ROPES & GRIPS
Wire Ropes: Only galvanized or stainless steel wire are used; wire ropes are not plastic covered. Terminations around trees and poles have a closure angle less than or equal to 60 degrees.
Wire rope terminations and grips: The number of wire grips shall depend on the nature and diameter of the wire rope and the types of wire ropes and grips used. For a wire rope diameter 10mm a minimum of 4 wire grip per termination is used. It is not be possible to undo critical components without a tool
Design and manufacture: Rope/Wire Adventure Park Course has been designed with consideration for the size and body weight of the participants. The dynamic load (generated by a falling participant) will not exceed 6kN. Installations using self- belay systems made out of steel wire rope has been calculated
Support system: The support system (artificial and/or natural structure intended for installation of activity and safety systems) has the stability and resistance appropriate for the load calculated. In instances where the wire line course transmits loads to the existing structure (e.g. tower) care has been exercised to ensure that the existing structure can bear the loads created by the zip lines.
Activity system: The activity system (e.g. landings, platforms, descending devices, zip wires) has been designed to accommodate the imposed loads. The safety connection between the participant and the high rope game has been made with the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). Wires don’t have exposed broken wire ends within the reach of the participants; If any part of the zip wire and landing area is not visible from the start point a departure regulation system has been used.
TRAINING & SAFETY
Appropriate training and equipment is provided for participants . The braking is implemented automatically by the instructors and participants don’t have any role in the same.
PPE ( Personal Protection Equipment): All PPE are CE EN / UIAA Certified and PPE inspection check list is periodically formulated and implemented.
MAINTENANCE & INSPECTION
Safety system: The safety system is collective and individual (e.g. safety harness, lifeline, helmets). When participants’ feet are more than 1.0m from the ground, a safety system is in place. Systems, in particular with movable trolleys, are designed in such a way as to reduce entrapment of body parts and clothing.
Inspection and maintenance: Regular inspection and maintenance is carried out by the Technical Staff, including a visual inspection and a functional inspection which are logged.
