ascensacion

The safe operation of a zip line and/or rope course requires knowledge and commitment from every person involved in its functioning, including the owner, the site manager and the guides.  For this reason, it is imperative to implement safety standards, teach the correct use of the equipment, get to know thoroughly the facilities, and perform periodic reviews.  Another key point is to chose a responsible and courteous staff members and train them to provide customers with attention and kindness and in a responsible manner.

We offer operational training for all facilities that we develop. Additionally, we provide a customized training session in addition to a manual that summarizes all different aspects (strategies and techniques, etc.) seen within the training session. We also provide our customers with the necessary forms so that they can keep track of their inspections, maintenance and responsibility waivers.

Ascensacion-Magnetic Trolley

Magnetic Trolley

•NO MORE OBSOLETE FRICTION BRAKE TROLLEYS

•NO MORE DAILY MAINTENANCE

•NO MORE CABLE WEAR

•NO MORE TROLLEY FAILURE

•100% INCREASED SAFETY

Our US patented HS Magnetic Trolley is the achievement of 5 years of research and development. We have put all of our experience and technology is this revolutionary trolley and it shows!

Tested in Nepal one the steepest and one of the longest zip-line in the world, it was conceived to fill the need for tackeling extreme slopes before considered impossible. Armed with a powerful and fully adjustable Integrated Eddy Current Brake, It allows us to slower the ride to a manageable speed without friction, heat or wear on the cable, thus greatly reducing the maintenance needed to operate the ride.

Because it is bound to an unshakable law of physics just as reliable as gravity, it cannot fail and therefore makes it the safest brake trolley available on the market for high end commercial zipline with slopes up to 50 degrees. It can be used with a regular climbing harness, two anchor point chair harness or a horizontal harness for top speed up to 180km/h.


And there’s more… it’s whisper quiet!

 

The Zipline Retrieval System or ZRS will bring your equipment back to the top or will even bring your rider up the line.

 Zip-Rush System            

The Zip Rush™  System was designed  for steep slopes, speeds up to 160 km/h, lengths over 1 km and high throughput for maximized profitability.  

Thanks to our patent pending Progressive Counterweight Brake and the revolutionary patented High Speed MagBrake Trolley we can manage steep slopes up to 45% and high speed landings up to 100 km/h.  Such high speed landings call for a lot of braking space as it doesn't matter how good you brake is, if you do not have enough deceleration length, the landing will always be uncomfortable, not to say dangerous.  

No one else in the industry dispose of the technology to equal Zip-Rush's High End Commercial Zipline safety, reliability and profiability. 

This design can be equipped with our patent pending Gear Retrieval System or be operated more efficiently without it.  The choice to use this system is based on operationability and accesibility of the top and bottom sites.
