Zipline which can be positioned in adventure parks can also be designed as a stand-alone adventure area. Due to the emotions closest to flying, its popularity is rapidly increasing, and extremely important calculations are required for both the installation and operation of Zipline. As Extreme Works, we offer the most suitable Zipline solutions for you in the safest ways.
Zip lines can also be set up between trees or between steel-wood towers. Ziplines that can be installed on trees can reach a certain length depending on a number of natural variables such as the type, age, soil condition, and ground slope of the trees. However, steel structures should be preferred especially for long Zipline lines where the load is high and the vibration is intense.
Zipline is generally preferred as the last element of ropes course in adventure parks. In this way, while descending from the rope park to the ground and evacuation are provided, the users who are about to finish the course are rewarded with Zipline, which is an enjoyable additional activity.
For Zipline facilities, which can also be established as independent activity areas, many data such as wind, rain, lightning hazards, the ground condition should be reviewed, and projects that include every detail from foundation to steel, rope to braking systems should be made.
Extreme Works fully prepares static calculations, projects, and reports for all Zipline installations.
How to Install Zipline?
Ziplines are activity areas where users can slide from one point to the other with their harnesses over the wire ropes and trolleys established by taking advantage of the elevation difference between the two points. No motors, batteries, and electricity are used during the zipline activity.
Zipline courses require important calculations, regardless of whether they are long or short. In cases where a faulty project or installation is in question, major accidents and material and moral damages may be encountered.
The length, ground form, and type of the application area should be examined for correct Zipline installation. Tower and platform projects should be prepared for the starting and ending points in accordance with the requested speed and existing land elevations.
Steel wire ropes should be determined in accordance with the load on the Zipline and the maximum speed of the users. In determining the zipline steel rope; Rope diameter, wire structure, breaking load, composition, core properties, the thickness of outer wires, oil ratio, strength class of each wire forming the rope, and the properties of anti-corrosion coating should be considered simultaneously.
Different types of Zipline steel ropes are available for every climate, length, speed, and reel. As Extreme Works, besides standard steel ropes, we produce steel ropes with a special composition, breaking load, and coating properties for areas and places with different characteristics.
Another important issue regarding ziplines is trolley selection. If the most suitable trolley for the line is not selected; The steel rope will be deformed very quickly, the speed of the users cannot be adjusted, there will be problems in the braking system, and eventually the Zipline will wear out in a much shorter time than usual.
Zipline can be installed as a single line, as well as as a departure and arrival or parallel lines.
Zipline Braking System
Due to the high speed required, weight differences among users, and factors such as wind, it may be possible for users to reach the endpoint quickly, where they cannot stop automatically. For these situations, different Zipline braking models can be used.
The safest of these models is an automatic magnetic braking device called ZipStop. ZipStop, which has different models for different speeds, is a safe Zipline braking device that can be used for many years with correct assembly and periodic maintenance. In addition to the Zipstop, a spare braking device should also be used. As Extreme Works, we, by using the most suitable braking systems on fast lines, besides all visitors having fun; We also provide convenience and speed in all processes for businesses.
The most important equipment for the zipline is the trolley. In addition to the zipline trolley, seat belts, helmets and lanyards are the minimum requirements. Apart from these, action cameras are also frequently used on Zipline courses.
How Much Does Zipline Installation Cost?
Zipline installation cost can vary depending on many factors, such as the requested line length and speed, the features of the area where the installation will be made (for example, whether it is a forested area). In addition, the brand and quantity of personal safety equipment and trolleys to be used are among the determining factors in terms of cost. A special study is carried out for each installation area for Zipline pricing.

Who Can Use Zipline?
Ziplines are generally designed for users aged 5 and over. Taking into account the speed of the line and harness limits, Zipline users are expected to be over 5 years old and weigh less than 120 kg. Special projects can be developed for Zipline demands that go beyond these general limits.
