Kletterwald (climbing forrest) Freischütz in Schwerte, Germany opened on the 23rd of March 2013 and uses the new continuous belay solution Saferoller®. Patrick Hahnrath, manager of Kletterwald Freischütz, names the advantages of the system:
Mr Hahnrath, why have you chosen the continuous belay solution Saferoller® by Kanopeo for your park?
- We were looking for an advanced solution that combined maximum safety with simplicity, comfort, and low maintenance requirements. In our opinion, a continuous system is superior to all other systems. The trolley is perfect for climbing through the course quickly and it is also very suitable for the popular zip lines. Manipulations with the trolley are not necessary. Because of those advantages, people who have used a Saferoller® system don’t want to go back to a traditional system and are annoyed by the manipulations that are required in those systems. Besides, the Saferoller® is stable and robust. We haven’t had a single malfunction so far this season.
What are the advantages regarding the height of the lifeline?
- It makes sense to have the lifeline above head-height. It reduces the risk of injury, gives the climber more mobility and it also forces guests that would otherwise just pull themselves from platform to platform using the lifeline to actually master the obstacles correctly
