Ziplines are activity areas where users can slide from one point to the other with their harnesses over the steel wire ropes and trolleys built 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.
For correct Zipline installation, the length of the application area, ground form, and type should be examined. 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 wire 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 wire ropes are available for every climate, length, speed, and reel. As Extreme Works, besides standard steel ropes, we make produce steel wire ropes with a special composition, breaking load, and coating properties for areas and places with different characteristics.
Another important issue regarding zipline lines is trolley selection. If the most suitable trolley is not selected for the line, the steel wire 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.
