Introduction of Belay System

Continuous Wire Belay System

Continuous Wire Belay System eliminates the need for any transfer besides the first one to start the course and the second one to exit the course. Once connected, the participant’s lanyard is connected to a shuttle or trolley which is in a steel track or riding on a cable system.

The continuous nature of the system prevents the possibility that the participant will become disconnected from the fall arrest system while on the ropes course.  As participants move from element to element, the shuttle or pulley must move over or though some form of a bracket attached to the support structure (pole, tree or column).

This option is usually best for commercial use.  If you’re trying to get a large amount of people though during the time of operation, this would be your best option.

Static Belay System

The Traditional Static Belay System uses a set of “Y Tails” or lanyards with two legs. 

The participant manually opens and closes a connector on the end of each leg of the lanyard. The participant is responsible to ensure that they are always attached to at least one belay cable or approved and rated clip-in point. 

The potential for a “total unclip” exists with this system and requires a higher staff to participant ratio to ensure participant safety,  but this is a less expensive belay system at the time of initial installation. 

In the long term, the increased staffing costs make this a more expensive option.  Staff observes ever transfer of the participants.
